John’s teacher said that in the course of a single year he has done “at least two and a half year’s” worth of work.
When John wakes up in the morning, every morning, the very first thing he does is saunter over to the keyboard usually with his favorite blanket draped over him. And when we go away for a few days….the very first thing he does when we get home is jump on the keyboard – often lamenting, “I missed the piano.”
I read recently that the holy trinity of childhood genius consists of chess, math, and piano. Well that’s precisely where we’ve been focusing!
