Sitting at the table after dinner last night, we heard our son in the living room fiddling around. He came in and said, “I’ve learned a new song.” Frowning slightly and pausing occasionally to correct himself, he played Gavotte by Martini, a violin tune he’d heard ten times on his CD player and had never practiced before. This is the first time we’ve seen him do this. Amazing.
I’ve told my wife that in patiently and persistently shepherding our kids through music lessons she’s accomplished something far more valuable and tangible than anything I’ve built in business.
