Musical Sam

Just a quickie blog post because it is almost midnight and I won't be able to get out of bed in time to get Sam off to school if I don't go to sleep asap. I'm just back in from belly dancing, then a coffee in Starbucks with Mum.

Today Sam and his classmates undertook another music test, in their music lesson at school. Every child had their own keyboard and headphones. They each had so many minutes to listen to the music which was playing (it was a carol, can't remember which, but it wasn't easy). Then they had to pick out the tune as best as they could on the keyboard, and they were marked. At the end of the lesson the music teacher stood Sam up and asked him if he had taken piano lessons. He said No. She said that he had done best out of the class, and that she had never seen a child so perfectly replay the piano without lessons, in such a short amount of time. She told him that he had an exceptionally musical ear. He came home with a rather inflated head, a huge smile and an ego to match it! That's two really nice encouraging musical comments for Sam this week. One from his music teacher, and one from his guitar teacher. Just thought I'd share it.

It is so nice to hear that Sam is doing so well at his new school. It's a refreshing change from his experience at primary school. I hope his popularity continues and his ego doesn't inflate so much that he goes into hyper-space lol

Yes Tabi, Thank goodness none of the kids have inherited Steve's ear for music! Can you imagine? I'd need my ear drums removed if they all sang at once!

Well, done Sam. It is not suprising as your Mum and Dad have always made sure music has been part of your life Love Grannie & Grandad xxxx

LOL!
I actually have to physically restrain Steve from entering those Pop Idol auditions. He is so sure that he sings like an angel. How wonderful to be so delusional.
