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.
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!
