::this moment::


It took minutes to teach her three simple chords. For the rest of the camping trip, we listened to her practising, then watched her write her own song and put it to music. For her musically-inclined aunt and uncle, this was indeed a moment to cherish and celebrate.

  1. That is where is all starts! My son started out at about that age, just a few chords, and now years and many formal lessons later is an accomplished guitar player. It`s so exciting to watch it happen!

  2. i love it when kids show interest in music (and not just iPods and the like, but their OWN, handmade music)! i hope my little one will have a similar intense look on his face when playing once he is old enough. you did a great job capturing that moment!
    have a lovely weekend!

  5. I think it's so important for kids to be involved in music in some way and it looks like you stumbled upon a gift of your daughter's!

    Have a great weekend!

  10. That is wonderful! Get 'em young and they will never forget!
    I have a photo posted to my blog from about a week ago, of my almost three year old grandson with his baby size guitar. His Daddy is a musical professional so it has to be genetic!
