This year Kayla signed up for glockenspiel lessons at school (xylophone). She has learned to play a total of 10 songs from memory and we are super proud of her. Closer to the classroom concert date, she diligently practiced at home. Kayla would get frustrated at her own mistakes but she was able to quickly recover and move on. At times, I would feel nervous for her in watching her practice.
Learning how to play the glockenspiel has helped Kayla to develop patience, concentration and a greater love for music. If willing, we will continue with these lessons during the next school year, or perhaps move her onto the piano!
