"Sessions" with your kids…
My little boy is 3 1/2 years old. I’ve had this dream since before he was born that he would be a "natural" with music and we’d be able to play music together.
Well, I still dont’ know if he’s a natural, but he’s been around music (especially ITM) since he was born. He’s been to more sessions than can be counted with many hands. I’ve always noticed his interest and participation (by bobbing his head, or humming along) but never has he actually collaborated or "jammed" with me alone.
Well, last night something like that took place. He was playing his harmonica while I played the guitar and for 5 minutes at least, we "jammed" like jam.
It was amazing great fun!!. He even made up some words (syllables) to his own song. He kept on singing "Times Past Memory" or something to that effect. Those are the only English words I could attach to the syllables he was singing.
(He actually makes sense when he talks normally.)
Anyways, have any of you had experiences with your own offspring that you’d like to share? I know I’ll never forget the first real "session" I shared with my son as long as I live, even if he doesn’t.
