Guess what am I doing? :)

My son got excited when he saw a lap harp at his music school. Now every time we are there for a lesson he has to touch the strings. He wants to learn how to play it. His music school offers free trial lessons without any obligation ( just return the harp if you don’t want to continue). Apparently a harp teacher is booked but there is always a chance to have an opening… We will wait. And for now I am researching the Internet how to play harp and so on and so on. 🙂

I am happy that my son wants to learn how to play different music instruments. He is currently taking guitar lessons and loves it very much. At school he has to choose an instrument to play in a band so he chose a flute. Hmm.. I think I would like to learn how to play flute too. And a harp! 🙂

Yes, we are a musical family and we are proud of it! 🙂

I was practicing on my ukulele yesterday. Half an hour and I still can’t feel my fingertips. I was grateful that I am not left handed otherwise it would be kinda difficult to hold the pencil. But the post isn’t about my poor fingers. I was thinking why I am often getting discouraged while practicing? Doesn’t matter either it is a piano practice or ukulele… Why am I so uncertain in my skills? Where it comes from I wonder… Anyway, yesterday I did learn from a very old book called “A practical Method for Self Instruction on the ukulele and banjo ukulele”. This book was published in 1914. I realized one more time that I don’t like the chords! I am a melody kinda girl 🙂
Hmm… will I feel my fingertips tomorrow? 🙂
