We Could Keep Going…You Should Book a Concert and find out for yourself. Mike is available for piano and organ concerts & recitals.
Imagine, for a moment, spending time with a twelve year old Johann Sebastian Bach, or Chopin as a child, or Mozart, or Gershwin, or Bernstein when they were still in elementary school. Or, for that matter, Einstein, or Euler, or Newton. Some were “prodigies,” perhaps; some were not. Are there common patterns in their upbringings? How did their parents manage the challenges? Is there a roadmap? What, if anything, can the childhood of young musical lives teach us?
It’s easy to fall in love with prodigies and the myth of that apparent miracle. But what about creating and nurturing wonderful musical (and nonmusical) experiences for all of our children? This talk is a brief prelude drawing on my own memories of being a kid in public school and some of the astonishing musical experiences we had — and which, sadly, seem awfully uncommon today.
