Title: My daughter...
Post by: ♩♬🐸 Billy C ♯♫♩🐇 on August 07, 2016, 01:10:47 AM
Jaymie just turned 9 last month. She was playing the piano at the children's church, and I filmed the last part.  Reason why the video cuts out its because that little boy said something to her and I ended up intervening.

She's growing up so fast...

Kids do. One of mine has three children of his own now. All a bit mind-boggling really...

Nice vid!

Thank you! She taught herself how to play a few years ago (!) by watching live concert footage on YouTube and (I kid you not) from listening to the BB/BW  piano demos. I wish I had her natural talent...I've been writing music since I was 11, but it was just in my head until I got access to music creation software in my college years. (Only instrument I was even barely proficient on was the bass, and post-stroke I lack the dexterity to do so now). She now can not only write on the piano (and play existing songs by ear) but is able to play the flute and currently learning the guitar. All self-taught . I had to work like hell to be able to do what I can; she's actually above me talent-wise.

It seems like only yesterday I was bringing her home. I still had hair when she was born :lol  Now I'm going to be 38 in 6 days, 40 in two years. I sometimes miss the days where she would be watching stuff like Dora the Explorer. Now she's watching music documentaries and WatchMojo.com videos on youtube.

We have a keyboard but currently it is in storage until we get a permanent residence again.

I really like that part from 16 to 19 seconds in. That's an interesting little melody. Brian would be proud.  :)

You think she'll be one of those people that can play pretty much any kind of instrument they pick up?  That could get quite expensive. Wait until she wants a grand piano.  ;D

when it comes to music, the younger the better.  Best time to learn and develop.
