{nine}Music

Everyone needs a little music in their life right?

I think appreciating music and learning to play an instrument is essential for developing a whole range of skills. As a single mother of 4, my mum managed to gives us all lessons on 2 or 3 instruments each! As well as theory lessons. I'm very grateful for the opportunities she provided for us and the friends we've met along the way.

It has actually been a few years since I played any sort of instrument and I'm not sure I'd remember how, but I keen to look in to it again. Pity we don't have the room, or money, right now for a piano....best add it to that ever growing wish list.

Today Aden started his first 'music' lessons. There was lots of singing and playing a few instruments like the drums, castanets, and sleigh bells. Aden was most facinated by the teacher guitar...begging to have a turn too. 'Please Mum, I'll be really gentle. Only for 5 minutes okay? At 3 he is quite the master of the persuasive talk.

With a bit more pleeding, after the other kids, who are quite a bit younger, had left Aden got to have a very gentle turn at plucking the strings. It also helps that Mummy has some sway with the teacher!

Luke started with violin and hated it. He's now switched to percussion and loves it.

Yep! Dd1 and I have been learning the piano for 3 years. Dd2 started 1 year ago. We all love it.

We've been doing baby music since O was 6 months old - now he's six and we are contemplating instruments, his current choices are piano or clarinet!
