I don't hate this part....


So a few mornings ago, Maddison and I were watching Jumpstart on VH1 and the newest Pussycat Dolls song came one (currently the top song on my playlist when you log on to my blog) and Maddison (9 years old) said, "mom, can I watch her fingers on the piano to learn this song?" I told her that because it was a music video, she probably wasn't even playing the real notes. So I got online to see what I could find. The first thing I could get my hands on was just the letter notes. Not the sheet music, just... right hand.... GGGAFG.... ect.... so I printed it out, she sat down at the piano and played it like she wrote it!!! I was so excited!!!! I called her fabulous piano teacher (who happens to be my best friend) and shared that moment with her. After the kids went to school I was able to find the real sheet music online, so when she got home, she got to play the whole song and not just the intro. I love that Maddison LOVES music like me, and she's pretty good at playing it too!!! So, when you listen to the intro of this song, think of how lucky I am that she plays it on our piano every time she gets the chance!!!!

you should look into more contemporary music that would be fun for her to learn just for fun...
