Here’s why Seabass WILL take music lessons.

18 Nov

Not so he can grow up to be a concert pianist/cellist/kazooist.

Not so he can build character while being called a band geek.

Not so he can shred on lead guitar…and get the girl.

Not so he can join the cast of My Fair Lady.

No, the only reason I will make Seabass take music lessons is to ignite in him a lifelong love of music like the people in this video have.   A flash mob hit Macy’s in Philadelphia’s Center City a couple Saturdays ago – 650 vocalists who, unknown to shoppers, had arranged to burst into song at noon.  Watch and weep.

THAT’S why.

    I wish I had been there. Seabass is a very lucky child. (Found you courtesy of lifeintheboomerlane. Thanks, Boomer!).

    […] whether he wants to join me.  This might seem like a contradiction to the post I shared about my thoughts on music lessons a while back, but there’s a big difference between bringing a four-year-old to Walt Disney […]
