Drew(10) went back to piano lessons this morning, very nervous about how much he hadn't practiced over the holidays. Both he and I were pleasantly surprised by how much he remembered.
I enjoy going with him to his lessons, even though it puts my teeth on edge at times (those wrong notes make me jump!) and I like watching his face when he "gets" it. He is such a serious child at times that it's good to see him enjoying the whole experience. I hope he will continue to get joy from music even if he doesn't end up playing when he's older.
