Last week we were able to get Wyatt’s piano from storage. This piano belonged to Wyatt’s grandmother and several cousins had their very first piano lessons on those keys sitting next to Nana as she guided their hands in the proper position. While Wyatt never was much of a piano player, his love and talent for music made it a simple choice for her to pass the family piano onto him. He can dabble a short tune here and there on the piano and he excels on the guitar and trumpet. With the addition to the piano in our home, Wyatt looks forward to relearning how to play.
I am quite excited as I never had a piano and always wanted to learn. I played violin in school and was in choir. In college I took a music appreciation class that helped me understand how to read music more in-depth and how that relates to the piano. I am excited to start learning. I have a new music book in my Amazon cart and plan to start learning on my own once we get the piano tuned later this week.
As you can see in the picture above even the kitties are excited about the music. In our free time Wyatt will bring out one of his guitars or I will bust out singing so music is such an important part of our family that even the cats are excited about the new ‘toy.’
We hope to instill a love and appreciation of music in our home as we know that it has great benefits in creativity and brain development in young minds. Hopefully our children will ask us to take music lessons whether it’s on the piano, guitar or any other musical instrument or even voice lessons.
