We aren't particularly a musical family, yet, music plays a big part in our daily lives. My oldest daughter was a choral singer for several years and now she is in her second year of guitar lessons. My son is also one year into guitar lessons. My youngest daughter can be heard singing herself to sleep most nights and just this week she signed up to be part of the primary choir at her school.
I feel that music plays a huge part in our lives. Music can be a language all of its own and allows people to communicate even if there is a language barrier. Music can evoke emotion and memories which we may not otherwise be aware of.
When I was pregnant with all three of my children, we played classical music to my belly. I am a firm believer that those early days set in place a love and desire for music.
Coming up in February both of my guitar playing children are involved in a themed recital. Matthew is learning to play a song and his instructor is going to sing. Emily has her song ready and she is both playing and singing.
I would love to see them develop their skills and passion further, and maybe even one day attend a school of music, such as a music institute in Paris, or other destinations abroad.
I once read that music is what makes humans human, and with music we can all communicate - how very true!
