Drum vs Piano
Late last year, Ethan requested for drum lessons. I don’t know where he got the idea from but I guess it must be after we watched Justin Bieber playing the drum when he was like what… 4? Talking about Justin Bieber, have you listen to his latest single, Boyfriend? I haven’t but my niece is nuts about him. Can’t blame her though, after all, her name is Hazel. She was BORN a NUT! :P
Ok, back to the drum story. Ethan requested to attend drum lessons but I don’t fancy having all that wrecking sound at home. I’ve always managed to change topic each time he brought it up until one fine day..
He was given the chance to play the drum during one of our makan sessions. OMG, he can’t stop talking about it since. It was drum this, drum that, drum, drum… drum!
I knew I had to do something. Being the ‘best’ parents ever, we sourced for a music teacher and bought him this:
Yeah I know, that’s NOT a drum.
We managed to strike a deal with Ethan to learn the piano for at least a couple of years before we get him a set of drums. He agrees to wait until he is 7 as we told him that his leg is not long enough at the moment to play the drum! :P
So there it is, the piano at home. His FIRST piano lesson will officially kick-off TOMORROW, 28 March 2012. The piano has been sitting there for almost a week now and he just can’t wait to explore it. He can’t wait for his first piano lesson so what he did was googled for how to play the piano and learn the keys by himself. Neither Darling nor me can help him as we are BOTH non-musical people.
We found simple piano notes online and he tried playing it.
Here he is playing the Happy Birthday song
And Mary Had a Little Lamb
and Hot Cross Buns
I don’t know if he is doing it right or not as like what I’ve said, I have no piano knowledge whatsoever. What I do know is, his piano teacher will come tomorrow for his first official lesson and he is extremely excited already!

Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.
