In my head I am the greatest musician – I’ve composed the most beautiful pieces and written the most inspirational and meaningful songs… In my head that is…

I have dabbled with piano, self taught without any technique, and without the necessary co-ord’s to actually do anything further with it…

(and let’s not forget the ADHD, we must never forget the ADHD)…

I once bought a guitar, it still looks good in it’s box… And the Harmonica I purchased was very silver and very shiny… I wonder where that got to?

As a father, I am going to make sure that my kids have a full life with well rounded opportunities, advantages and discipline that I never had access to for no other reason than circumstance, part of this includes a musical mastery. The ability to master an instrument is about so much more than just playing a ditty, the learning itself is wholly developmental and skilled, and contributes to an approach which extends well beyond the picking up of the instrument.

For me, at this stage of life, I’ll just use Garage Band on my iPad… I play good Garage Band 🙂
