A boy and his bass

The boy child has had a long history with his pal, the double bass.


His teacher would be proud of that picture -- hey, the bow is in the right position for a change!

Note how he has grown, and so has the bass.



We've gone through various suits as well.



We've gone through lots of different concerts.




Even a few at famous places.


But throughout it all, the boy child has known what he likes best.


Now how do I get him to like classical music?   :D

Happy 16th birthday to my spring baby.  Don't start demanding the car too soon.

Music is a gift to the soul!

Love it myself and even thought it's not my main occupation, I resort to it to restore my soul. He will be glad for all the hard work one day I'm sure.

Just expose him to lots of music. Play the classical at mealtimes, maybe.

My granddaughter likes her guitar (acoustic) better than her violin. I told her if she kept up with the violin we would get her a Daisy Rock electric guitar. There's no such thing as too much music.
