Maestro or Rock Star

Ben has always been interested in playing music. If you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up he will tell you in this order...rock star, The Hulk, and Captain America. He has this amazing imagination. He tells stories all the time and frequently tells me that tomorrow is going to be a busy day because I have to go to my band.

So I decided to take him yesterday to observe a piano lesson. He was interested, but it was hard to pry him away from grandma and the Wii. Grandma had come to pick up some stuff to help with his birthday party so she ended up eating dinner with us and playing with the kids a little.

Once we got there he seemed a bit nervous about the whole thing, but once we got in the studio and the boy played the theme to Star Wars, he was totally HOOKED! He was amazed that the boy who was not much older than he was, could play this song on the piano. All he talked about this morning was going to piano lessons. Hmmm...I wonder how he will feel after having to practice thirty minutes a day, every day with mom next to him?

:) I am so glad, or else I would probably have to help her start her own band just so she could hang out at the same places as Ben!
