“X” Xylophone vs Pots & Pans

March 26, 2012 at 8:18 am 4 comments

Children before they can walk… love music. A musical instrument likely found in a children’s room is the Xylophone with colorful bars. With a smile on their face they compose music only they and their playmates understand.  Then once able to walk to discover the kitchen cabinet doors with pots and pans, some children will also find the plastic tubs. The child with wooden spoon in hand delights in the tones, from a ping to pong… ding and a dong the children keeps on smiling.

Years ago I too was a culprit in the kitchen band, with my older brother and younger sister we hit the big charts, rising super musician… happy times… maybe not so much for Mum.

A favorite musical moment.. watching Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner Show… the animations with the soundtracks of great classical composers like Bach and Beethoven,  and Opera, yes even Opera The Barber of Civil. Bugs and Elmer Fudd on stage performing. Bugs with ointment in hand, messages Elmer’s bald head with great enthusium in beat with the music. Classical music and Opera are still very much alive in our lives, we may not be aware of the influences in commercials and movies… it’s there.

Well, at work my favorite Bay Area classical station is in the back ground. Why? The  music creates a relaxed atmosphere to focus and type along to the notes.

    I remember buying a Xylophone for my daughter. She loved to play it. I gave her the pots and pans while we were both in the kitchen. My cousins son also loved playing with pots and pans. Glad to say that my kid is very interested in music and is interested in composing music for fun. Playing piano is is her hobby.
