Kids and Music – the best combination

Share

Whenever we get into the car with our 6 and 4 year old grandsons in the back, if we are not playing games of “I spy” or telling stories, we are listening to Sirius Radio – Symphony Hall. Our Jack is a huge fan of classical music and Jonah is getting there too. So since Jack ( 6) can read, he reads the LED display from the back seat, and announces the new composer or piece as it comes on. Over the past two years ( he taught himself to read at 4) he has learned to recognize many composers – of course Mozart and Beethoven, Bach and Brahms, but also Telemann and Rachmaninoff along with Gershwin and even Grateful Dead. He is a music agnostic and likes all music for which I am grateful – even my Sam, The Broken Robot Songs ( of course I wrote them for our grandkids to start with!).

Here my husband Clive and I are, with the two older grandsons watching family movies before bed at the grandkid’s home. Such happy times…Clive Larraine Jack Jonah Aug 12 2013
