Luke gave Piper her first woodwind lesson this afternoon. He’s played his saxophone for her before, but it’s been a while, and it’s really loud, so I’m not really sure how much she enjoyed it.
The clarinet? A whole other story. He started playing and she was mesmerized. She kept looking at his mouthpiece, the bell, and back to the mouthpiece trying to figure out why he was doing something to the top, but the bottom was where the sound was.
Luke put the bell on her belly so that she could feel the vibration. After that, she couldn’t keep her hands off.
I do believe, however, that it would be most beneficial for her to be able to hold the horns first, before she learns to play. And that would require her to be a tad taller.
Just a tad.
