Why do some people say that they like to learn piano? Have you ever wanted to go to a piano camp?
Do you like to learn piano? Do you like to learn guitar?
Here is what happened.
I have two children, one is about 2 years old and I am a full time stay-at-home mom to her. I took my two boys to the piano camp that I started. The kids that attended were either 2 and 3 years old or younger.
The children that actually liked playing the piano were the most disappointed.
There were about ten or twelve kids who were actually really good with the piano but were still upset about only playing piano when it was time to practice or they felt that they had nothing else they really enjoyed doing besides playing the piano. A few days after my group ended my kids were playing the piano and they were all really excited.
I thought to myself, how cool is that?
And this is when I discovered that my husband had become a real amateur pianist. In fact he had become a piano prodigy!
So, my husband was like an adult music prodigy (or adult prodigy).
I started to see all kind of amazing things in him about piano.
He was able to understand music even at 8 years old. He can tell me things in piano that only a 10 year old pianist can tell me. He can say ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ to the music in a given music track. He can play some very simple and recognizable music in the middle of a composition. He can play very short and simple pieces of music in the middle of the piano. He can read music better than me. He even reads lyrics of music in the middle of a song to me.
He was able to teach me basic piano music.
Then, I started to really like him.
He was not like the kids that were sitting at the piano camp that I was teaching.
Now, I have always liked being outside. Going outside was a great way to meet new people. I had always had a good relationship with my father. I had also been a fan of traveling so that my husband and I could see new, interesting places.
That is one reason that I got very excited to go on a piano vacation.
One of the reasons I am going to travel on a piano retreat, is because I will be playing the piano.
