I admit I'm pretty excited that Wasabi Girl is showing an interest in vintage jazz. Music has always been such a huge part of my life that I know what rewards it brings. The sooner kids discover great music the longer they have to enjoy it.
Jungle Boy is the classical music kid. He can tell you all about composers and especially trumpet concertos, since he plays the trumpet.
Drama Girl? Her love of music is firmly grounded in top 40, which is all fine too. She spent a day last week with Lady Gaga turned up loud while she practiced pirouettes in the family room. No legs were broken - on Drama Girl or the furniture, so I guess it all ended well.
As for me, my first love will always be classical music, but I listen to a lot of different styles. I used to say I hated country music until I set up a sewing area in the garage. There was only one radio station that I could pick up there - guess who really likes country music now?
How about you? What genres make you smile?
