Do you have a musical background? What did you study first? Recorder? Piano? Violin? Drums? Inquiring minds want to know!
My boys are five and as such I am told their hands just aren’t large enough to give guitar a good go. I would like nothing better than for one of them to really take to the guitar. But apparently we have some growing to do first. Admittedly, Giles is a bit bigger than Jarvie, but still not big enough to start Guitar. I want them to start together anyway. I’m told guitar at 7. So the question remains what do we fill the gap between Delcros Eurythmics and Guitar with?Piano? Does a basic foundation in Piano put Guitar players in better stead anyway? I think there are different theories here.
I am considering launching them in Piano lessons this Fall through the Cleveland Institue of Music (CIM) and taking the lessons at the local Unitarian Church. This way they would not lose all the knowledge they have gained from the last year of Delcros Eurhythmics.
Fortunately, our friend and dog walker Richard can give us an old spinnet, which won’t take up too much space in our little home. For those of you who don’t know a spinnet is the smallest upright piano. The spinnet must be moved from his house to ours and then tuned. All in the next 6 weeks. Sounds like I better find a tuner now.
