Isaac has always wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Seeing as though we already pay for piano lessons I told him high school would probably be a good opportunity for that. I also said something like..."don't get sucked in to playing the trumpet".
Isaac is learining the TRUMPET!
His music teacher at high school told him he "has a knack for playing the trumpet"...I bet that's what he tells all the kids who miss out on the instrument they WANT to play!! Especially when he has no one interested in the trumpet but still has to assign three trumpets!!
It is quite a skill, to say the least, to do this instrument justice!!
I was a little disappointed for him that he missed out on the guitar. Apparently if you are having private lessons with an instrument you can't do the same one at school. Seeing as though most of his friends in the class have guitar lessons I thought he would have a pretty good chance of being able to learn his much loved guitar at school. Not so. Oh well, maybe next time.
Isaac is musically talented, but I don't think he realises this fully yet. He picks up new pieces on the piano very quickly and he has a lovely singing voice...getting him to sing when he was little was really easy, he loved it, now though it's just not 'cool'. I'm sure if Matt has anything to do with it though he will have all of his kids organised into a band before they know it!!
