It's in the genes.

I've got an old Guild acoustic guitar that M likes to take out now and then. She loves music and singing and dancing, which has transferred to her younger sister. She's also fiercely independent, which means I'm not allowed to show her how to hold it.

 

I think that's been one of the more difficult aspects of parenting: letting the little things go. I want to show her how to do things but I run the risk of doing that at the expense of her experiences and play. She'll be ready, one day, to learn how to play. And if she doesn't, that's okay, too.
