You don’t need much to play a duet if you know a piano player.
Although my boys don’t play piano, I was reminded this weekend how children really sponge-up opportunity. They’ll try most anything and catch on faster than we do. After we finished a delivery to my mom, our 6 year-old sat down at her piano. A few minutes later he was playing a Chopsticks duet, my mom providing the accompaniment.
Count to 6 and have 2 fingers– it’s possible. Perhaps he is a piano player, perhaps it’s time for lessons.
This was just another reminder that we often don’t plan the most precious moments of our day.
Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.
