"I am the music man and I come from down your way and I can play!"
"What can you play?"
My wee man has always loved music. Dancing to it, singing along to it and playing the instruments. We have always noticed this love of music by watching him play with his toys or while at your usual bounce and rhymes and bookbug classes. He was a very avid and loud drummer! When he started learning the words to the songs he was suddenly keeping the time to the music if you sang along while he played. I still am pretty impressed with this!
"I play the piano!"
"Pia-pia-pia-no, pia-no, pia-no; pia-pia-pia-no, pia-pia-no"
Only recently he has had a few goes with the real things. Whenever he sees them they are like magnets and he has to have a go. What is pretty impressive about it all is that he appears to instinctively know how he should do it. When you listen it could easily pass for some sort of avant garde jazz piece. Honestly even friends have commented on it. So I could have a natural on my hands. Something else to add to my "What is my son going to be in the future?" list!
Now I just have to choose an instrument! Anyone know how early you can start?
