My husband is a drummer. He & his brother marched with the Blue Coats in the 80's.
Their father was also a musician and music teacher.
I have no musical talents...well I can sing. The problem is that no one seems to be able to hear the music I sing, in the beautiful way that I hear it. LOL I love music... that should count for something right?
My son also loves music. The difference between he and I is that he really has a talent for it. He started playing the trumpet in 4th grade. He played it again in 5th grade, and then started playing the french horn last year.
I always wanted to learn how to play an instrument but never really had an opportunity to. My husband bought me a keyboard a few years ago, but I haven't had the time or focus to learn how to play it yet. I really had these grand ideas of being able to play like John Legend when I unwrapped it! LOL but I can't read music. I've tried to teach myself but I really need to take a beginners beginning course.
My son has already taught himself how to play several different songs on it. I don't know if he was able to pick up on it so quickly because he knows how to read music, or if he just has a God given talent for playing music. Either way, I love to watch and listen to him play his music.
And one of these days I'll figure out how to journal in a straight line :)
Thanks for looking!
