Teaching A Child The Power Of Music And The Arts – Brian’s Blog

As you know, I get to spend a lot of time with my grandsons. I am very lucky to get to be a male influence to these little buddies. One of the things I want to teach them is to be fearless when it comes to getting in front of people and performing. I feel that if you can learn to play an instrument, sing, dance or act you will have a skill set that will carry you very far in life. Everyone who isn’t on a stage wishes they had the confidence to do it. I have always said to just “go for it” in front of people. I have told young performers that if you are going to suck…suck loud and confidently.

The other day I gave my Zander a harmonica and told him we needed to learn to play together. I told him to go downstairs with the harmonica and play awhile then come up and play me a song. He came up with a milk crate for a stage, stood on it and announced it was showtime. He told me he learned a song he called “Buzz Lightyear” and performed it. We clapped and he bowed and was so proud…so was I. We then kicked back and jammed together. We rocked.

Do your children a favor and get them involved in the arts. The skills they will learn will give them talent, abilities and confidence that others will admire. I am looking forward to years of making music with Papa and Grandboys. We will be on the road soon.
