Little E's Muse

Little E performed his solo today for IMEA solo and ensemble contests. He asked for this particular piece of music for his birthday in December. You can't complain when your 13 year old son asks for sheet music, theater tickets, and piano lessons for his birthday. (You can make gay jokes, Husband and Rotund Reader, but I am quite proud of his talents and interests.) He wanted to play Pachelbel's Canon. This was a little difficult for his skill level, but I thought he did a great job and wanted to share. (The first 2 seconds of this are him trying to ask his accompanist if he can warm up a few notes, since his performance was delayed. It is kind of funny.)

What is also funny is his inspiration for wanting to do this song. He likes this routine by Rob Paravonian.

Pfft! My kids both played musical instruments... my son is now a bio-chemistry major with a math minor... and trust me, he isn't gay!! But if he were, it wouldn't matter because parents need to love their children UNCONDITIONALLY!! Tell the nay sayers to stuff it where the son doesn't shine! HOORAY FOR YOUR SON!! HOORAY!!

Middle Aged Woman:

Many top flight mathematicians are skilled in music as well.

Of course, I am mediocre in math and have no music ability at all...
