Music and Kids


The moment I found out I was pregnant with my son I felt anxious and scared, so I turned to music to calm me down. I would listen to calming, and soothing instrumental piano music all day if my schedule allows it. My husband and I attended a parents' seminar where we received a free classical music cd in the goodie bag and I played the cd all day even when I am taking a nap. Turned out, music affects babies inside the womb too.

Fast forward to 2016, included in my eldest son's long list of hobbies is playing the piano. Since neither me or his dad knows nothing about playing the piano, his godmother taught him the basics a couple of years back. Sadly she got sick and now their schedules became conflicted. We tried looking for piano classes nearby but the available weekend schedules interferes with his badminton training, which is his 2nd priority, 1st being school of course, so now he is learning by himself. We think he is still in the beginner level but as long as he is enjoying what he does then it is ok by us.

Without further ado, I would like to share with you one of his practice videos. It's not technically perfect. He becomes nervous whenever the video recorder is on, more nervous when someone is watching him. I am hoping making him used to the audience will help him overcome his shyness in performing.

"The woods would be very silent if the only birds that sang were those who sang best..." 
- Henry David Thoreau

Please leave a thumbs up on his video to help me convince him that even though his piano skills are not perfect, it is not something to be ashamed about.

Thank you.

Blessed be.
