A couple of weeks ago, Daniel's piano teacher pulled me aside...
"I have to warn you that I have assigned the Indian Song this week. I'm SO sorry."
You see, apparently boys REALLY like to play this catchy, rhythmic, obnoxious tune OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!!
We discovered - yup, it's true!
I had heard this tune SO many times that week, I was so happy when Monday rolled around again - I knew FOR SURE he would pass the song and move on... I mean, I heard it SO many times and I knew without a doubt that he knew it PERFECTLY!!!
So, this week, Daniel is practicing away at the circus song (which, believe me, is NOT much better!) He stops after awhile and says, "Mom, do think that's enough?" "Oh, I think so," I reply! (thankful it is over with)
"Sweet!" he says. "Now I can play the Indian Song!!!"
I would be remiss here not to tell you that although I hated listening to this song over and over and over again; there was something that was drawing me in... and while the kids played outside I thought I'd sit down and try it... in secret of course. Oh, but it WAS fun - and I finally gave in and played it while they were INSIDE - and we discovered that you can do a marvelous duet with the Indian Song, a mom, and a 10 year old boy =)
