This morning I started playing my acoustic guitar and babygirl was into it. I brought out her glockenspiel and handed her a couple mallets.
I am fast becoming a believer in the chromatic glockenspiel for early learning of music theory, not to mention exercising hand-eye coordination. After focusing on being “gentle” for a minute or two, she was ON. We are all amazed at how our 16 month old already has noticeable rhythm. Needless to say we played for quite awhile and had a blast.
It’s going to be fascinating once she gains a sense of melody. 1/2 scale guitars are easy to find but where do they sell mini grand pianos?
