He really does capture the essence of making music for the first time ever and how much fun it is to experiment with a new toy. :D

For some of us it is a happy memory and for others it is one of the worst memories, forced to take lessons as a child, having it drilled into you that piano playing is hard work and then being told after practice that it is NOT a toy and being forced to treat it like a piece of furniture between lessons.

(Except of course for those freaks who strap their 1 year old in front of a Steinway and are cultivating another Rachmaninoff. :D )

Anyway, I was told by my dad that I didn't have any talent but for my 18th birthday I bought myself a cheap flute and started teaching myself.

It's really the best part of taking up an instrument later in life when you're old enough to know what your really want to do with it. :)

When I was a kid growing up, my mum called me a "7 day wonder"
'Cause I never lasted very long with any of my hobbies or interests.
But! . . Keyboarding has lasted somewhat longer than 7days . .lol.

Learning to play music and actually playing real tunes has given me the biggest thrill factor ever. .
