Surprised by my eldest son

Day before yesterday (3rd Sept '08) I brought my son for music class as usual at Yamaha School. He is taking the JMC class. It was another same routine class for me. As the class started, I had to remind my son to sing as he plays the electone as the teacher always emphasizes in singing when playing because they will learn faster. My son always refuse to sing and he sings very softly and often out of tune when the note is high. I always thought that he has a lower vocal range.

But to my surprise, he started singing very loudly and he was very energetic. Then came the Samba King song where the kids have to dance with hand actions. All the kids went to the front and as the music started, the teacher started dancing and the kids followed. Never before since my son joined JMC, dance naturally or followed the actions. He was dancing naturally and doing the actions and that surprised me again. Normally, he'll be quite stiff when it comes to dancing. I can see that he was enjoying himself. Another surprise was the aural singing where the kids gather around the teacher and as she plays, they have to sing the tune in Do Re Mi. My son was singing loudly and hitting the pitch which he has never done it before.

I was just so happy looking at him. I told him that he was very good that day and ask him to continue to do this. I'm proud of him and I must say that he really surprised me during this class. I hope he continues to be energetic.

Proud and surprised father,
