A new step
I have been training Prisha to pay attention to difference in tunes, rhythm, etc so that she too can sing.I have always been fond of singing and did a lot of singing on stage too. I always wanted my kids too to be fond of dance and music.My son plays keyboard and Prisha too just ran her fingers.A part of me at times felt hurt at a thought that maybe she would never sing. But the singer in me never gave up and would sing along for her. I would exaggerate certain parts of singing to make her notice the difference in the notes, I would pat on her leg while the song would go on to get her the rhythm.Slowly, over now 4 years, she has got that rhythm and does try her singing.She does not always put words always, but at times we just make our own songs and laugh ourselves silly at what they sound like. They are like those typical mom-daughter moments.Her intonation is like a normal child.I asked my son's music sir if Prisha too learn the keyboard, he 1st asked me to wait for a year, but today he said he will take her now itself and he did not mind her coming everyday. I am so excited that she too would learn to play an instrument. we will try our best.i also have put her into Shiamak Daavar classes for performing arts, where she will attend 15 classes of dances. I spoke to her instructor for a feedback after 2 classes. She said that she was very happy with prisha's concentration. She had no problems understanding any instructions and did all the steps along with all the words. I am very happy with this new step in her life and hope she achieves everything she wants to.
