Hello fellow music lovers, hoomans and pups! I hope you are having a Bree-u-tiful day.
I would like to try something a little different for my entry today. We will have a link to the song , “MRS JOHNSON’S CHIHUAHUA” as our featured entry, after the Bree-f story of piano lessons.
The story before is that MUSICMAMA insisted that both Queen of the Universe and brother Bear take music lessons starting at 6, the recommended age unless you have a child prodigy.
There came a point when they both wanted to give up music/piano lessons. They would grumble from the back seat of the car: “Why do we have to do this”? “We don’t wanna!”
And MM would explain that music was as important as math or English. That is why she volunteered to teach music classes at their school, Budget cuts took away art and music classes.
Then she would explain what happens in the right and left side of the brain when studying music. That it helped with mathematics comprehension , and how one day they would thank her. This, as their eyes rolled, made faces and told MM they did not like her! And they would never thank her for this piano torment.
So imagine her joy years later when Bear told her: ” Thank you MM for making me stay with it. I am grr-earful and happy you did.”
He can now read any piece of music you put in front of him. From Beethoven to Mozart to today’s pop music. That was all MM insisted on, keep taking piano until you can read music, like you read a book. It is like being able to speak another language, that everyone in the world can understand, and Bree-joy!
He will often go in the music room now by choice and express his feelings in music. It also makes you popular at parties where there is a piano, and YOU can play it! In our music room we have our upright piano, an electronic keyboard, guitars and percussion and it has been the room where a lot of music has been played, from guests to the Larky band.
