"Bubba, it's time to practice piano," I said to my eight-year-old son.
He meandered into the room, holding his Nintendo DS. "Okay, Mama."
I sat down in my teaching chair next to the piano bench and waited for him to sit down. He did, but the Nintendo was still in his hands. "Dude, you need to put that thing down now. You can't play with it in your hands."
"Yes I can, Mama! Watch!" He brought up some kind of Pokemon app and took out his stylus. Two seconds later, he was touching the screen, playing the theme from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, which was part of his lesson. What's more is, he actually had to select the correct notes to play.
I couldn't believe it. Poke piano. Now I'm never going to get that kid unglued from his DS!
*LOL* I've never heard of that, but that's really great he can play it on there!ReplyDelete
If there's an app for something, my son can find it!Delete
Sounds like a cool app to have. ; )ReplyDelete
It is pretty cool!Delete
Trust Bubba to come up with a new way to get out of regular practicing. You must be very patient if you can teach your own children. I took mine to a piano teacher and just monitoring their practice nearly drove me insane. My mother took us to our lessons, but then we were on our own.ReplyDelete
I find it very difficult to teach my own kids. They do more complaining than all my other students!Delete
It does sound like a cool app!ReplyDelete
I couldn't believe they actually had one to do that!Delete
Never knew of that one, sounds like fun.ReplyDelete
He's having a great time with it!Delete
*hee* It's amazing what technology can do these days!ReplyDelete
It is pretty amazing!Delete
Where there's a will, there's a way and Bubba found it.ReplyDelete
Leave it to Bubba!Delete
They are way to smart!!!ReplyDelete
Scary, isn't it?Delete
Ha! Now that sounds like a fun way to practice~ReplyDelete
I wouldn't mind practicing that way, either!Delete
Great way to practice, I started playing the piano a 2 years of age then had proper lessons at 4 years. It was and still is a joy.ReplyDelete
I love playing the piano! I started when I was ten, but I've loved music since I was three.Delete
Oh my goodness, that's awesome. :DReplyDelete
Wow, he knows his musical notes regardless which instrument he plays them on. :)ReplyDelete
Welcome back! It's nice to see you again!Delete
Technology! What will "they" think of next? Too funny! :-)ReplyDelete
