Music: Lessons and Practicing
One thing we have done for our kids is allow them to take lessons for playing an instrument.
Nate was our first with guitar. I miss hearing him play! Lindsay and Emma were next with piano, but Lindsay liked the violin better and switched to that. Rachel took piano for a year, and has now playing the cello for the past two years. Sarah has done a bit of piano over the last few years, very casually with friends, and loves it. So we sought a more permanent teacher and found just the right one - our son in law Joseph! He and Lindsay come by one night a week, I feed them dinner and Joseph gives Sarah a lesson. They are both enjoying it very much.
Rachel takes cello every week, also. Rachel is naturally gifted and so gets a tad lazy about practicing. I'm trying to be better about helping her not to procrastinate. (smile)
Kyle wants to learn the bagpipes. Seriously. I may look into it. But not yet. We may start with a chanter.
