I think I’ve said before how important music is to us as a family. We’ve always got music of some variety on in the background and we try to expose Meg and Eli to as many different types as we can whether it’s current music, my Other Half playing his guitar or me singing (although recently that hasn’t gone down so well!)
So we considered ourselves very lucky when we were given a piano in September this year as both myself and my Other Half have wanted to learn for a long time and we were keen for Meg and Eli to have the opportunity too.
Obviously the kids are still too young to be able to fully appreciate lessons in playing but my Other Half still gives it a go. My favourite memory so far is of him trying to teach Meg “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and Meg putting her hand up to stop him and saying “It’s ok Daddy, I know how to do it” before producing a complete cacophony of noise from the piano. He does try and one day, hopefully Meg will allow herself to be taught!!
I love this quote from Plato about music, isn’t that just so true?
