Music Lessons


I have absolutely no musical talent. I cannot carry a tune, I can't follow a beat, I can't even sign along to top 40 hits (I never remember the words). This doesn't mean that I don't enjoy music, however. I like listening to music, and I am always impressed when I watch live performances - whether its Symphony in the Park or a local artist playing in a bar. My parents forced me to take piano lessons, and while I absolutely hated practicing, I'm thankful that I was able to learn how to read music. From time to time I think about getting a piano and playing songs with Soren...

Anyways, Soren seems very interested in music. He loves to dance when catchy songs come on the radio, and I've always sung (terrible) songs to him. While I was on maternity leave I loved going to various playgroups and baby programs. It was fun to socialize with the other moms, and it was neat to see Soren interacting with other babies his age. Now that I'm back at work I find I miss the interactions with other families. Unfortunately, most playgroups are during the day - when I am stuck in the office.

A friend recommended a baby music program, and we signed up! Starting at the end of September we will spend half an hour each Sunday at a toddler music appreciation class. No idea what to expect... hopefully I will not have to sing (out loud)!

That's great. If he can start playing an instrument at a young age, he will carry it forever. He may forget things but the foundation will be there.
