My Little Pianist

Last Sunday, my seven-year old sat in front a grand piano with his piano teacher and played at his very first recital. I hope this is the first of many. It was fun to see him play songs he learned. Its been great having him take his piano practice as serious as he takes his homework and I love that he also loves to play. Monday, after his lessons, he came home really excited about realizing he was reading music. I hope he continues to have this love for it. I never really got any opportunities as a child to learn music. I ended up being in marching bad in high school on the drum line and I tried to teach myself the piano, while I can identify some things on a staff and as long as I know what note we are starting on, I could probably very slowly play a sequence of notes. My trouble is when the notes look like they are on the same line, but they aren’t or I can’t figure how many jumps up or down a note is from the next one without counting in my head. I don’t know….my brother in law said its like riding a bike, and for me, I’m not so sure, but for Jaydon I hope it really is like riding a bike once he learns more. 


It was also nice to have some extended family at JJ’s recital. He had his grandmother, his two aunts and his uncle that gave him the piano he has at home that he practices on. 

Uncle Richard, who gave him his piano.

Every day after homework, he practices before he’s allowed to play outside with friends and he does it joyfully. I hope music continues to be apart of his life since both his uncle and teacher thinks he has natural rhythm. 


So very proud of my little JJ!

  1. What an awesome instrument for a child to play. It’s something that will give him something to do when he’s alone, teaches him memorization, fine motor skills, etc.

  2. That is so incredible! I love that you’re teaching him such a wonderful skill and that he’s enjoying it, and doesn’t he look so dapper there too!

  3. Awwww, I can just imagine how proud you were. I’ve been saying that I want to enroll my daughter in piano classes and was told to wait until she’s 5 so we have less than a year before we do. I’m so excited. 🙂

  4. Awww what a handsome young man he is. My step brother played the piano better than anyone I’ve ever heard. He passed away after getting an illness while on a missionary tour. I hope your son continues to enjoy playing and becomes equally successful.

  5. You must be really proud of him. Adorable and talented! I hope he become a successful pianist/musician. 🙂

  6. This is awesome! I can imagine how proud you are of him. I love to see kids doing what they love and playing an instrument is such a wonderful skill to have.

  7. This is so nice he can play the piano. The piano is so soothing and relaxing. Looks like, you and your family had a wonderful time.

  8. It is so awesome as a parent to see our children do something like this recital. We watch them and everyone around us can tell how proud we are as parents to see our kids do so well at something they enjoy doing. Thanks for sharing and congrats to your little man.

  9. Congratulations!! I remember the day my daughter played her first piano recital. It was very exciting for us to see her in front of a grand piano. It’s a great instrument and will make him a good learner at school too 🙂

  10. Awwwww what a cutie!!!! I wish I had taken piano when I was younger! Looks like such a fun instrument to play.

  11. I have always wanted to play the piano!! But to get the lessons in music class, we had to have a working piano at home! You have a reason to be proud!! I know when I saw my granddaughter play the flute up on her school stage, my chest swelled with pride! Some schools are talking about getting rid of music/art classes to meet the budget. That would be one of the biggest mistakes ever!! We NEED these things in our lives and in our children’s!!
