Subject: RE: Kids and music: I am a rich man!
You brought a tear to my eye. I sat my grand-dtr in my lap while i played piano, when she was about 2 months old, and now (she'll be going into kindergarten in Aug) we do a duet of "Twinkle,Twinkle", whenever i can get her attention. I don't see them as often as I'd like, but i did manage to get them an OLD beatup piano, which the local highschool gave away. Now they can bang on it without anyone chiding them (until they get TOO LOUD), and i can play it when i'm over there. It quiets them down, and sometimes they'll sing or dance.

It's sort of a wild household. I'd give anything for a longer time to play music with them, as you describe - but they're only 4 and 2, so I may just be too impatient!!

Great thread.
