Thread Name: Kids and music: I am a rich man!
Subject: RE: Kids and music: I am a rich man!
So glad to hear these stories, Blues (and others). I don't have kids myself, but among my favorite recent family memories are a couple of times my sister and I got a jam session going with her teen-age daughter (and once with my brother's 20-something-year-old son, as well). My niece plays piano and (electric) guitar, my sister plays piano and acoustic guitar, I play acoustic guitar, and we all sing. My niece has, for a few years, been at that stage where she doesn't have a lot to say to grown-ups (especially mothers and aunts), and, of course, the kids have their own music specifically chosen not to appeal to most adults. But when we occasionally all "get on the same page of music," it's a real joy!

May your riches continue unabated.
