good taste

Gareth has always loved music. He was ecstatic to start group piano lessons last year. Obviously, we are doing something right. I finally got around to updating and charging my ipod and putting in the car. The boys love it. Gareth likes both "kid music" as well as my music. Often, he requests "just Backyardigans". Today I had it on random though, and he listed to The Beatles, Bare Naked Ladies, and Sheryl Crow, but vetoed Justin Roberts (a kid song). Glad he's got taste. Later on, he listened to some Django. We started in on Stephane Grapelli when he realized there were no words (again). For whatever reason, he prefers songs with words, so we had to skip that one. But he is definitely on his way to good music taste.

I wanted to add one other note, and I thought it was unrelated, but then I realized it was about taste as well. Just a different kind. I am so happy this time of year. My all-time favorite fruit is in season. Finally. I discovered pluots (a cross between a plum and an apricot) just last year (maybe the year before) and they are hands down my all time favorite fruit. Happy me.

My dad is a HUGE music buff. When I was a kid, he'd play music every morning while we got ready for school, and then on our way to catch our bus, we'd listen to more. Whenever he was home, he had something playing. I never really listened to the Top 40 stuff all my friends were listening to...on share day in music class, I brought in Little Feat. I love that I have such an eclectic taste in music thanks to my dad, and I'm sure Gareth will appreciate it too!!

We love music in our house. Denny hates it when I do turn on any kind of kids music, but Dylan listens to it at daycare and some of it is not that bad really. Dylan loves to dance and one day I was playing Beastie Boys in the car and looked back and she was rocking out in the carseat. Sounds like your kids will have great taste!
