Sweet Sounds

Sam fell in love with the sound of the marimba before he was born. He loves to listen to Scott practice. He's been picking up mallets and playing since he could stand on a chair and reach the bars. He's actually pretty good at playing with 4 mallets! See how much he loves marimba:

Here is video from right after Scott taught Sam how to play loud and soft. It's obvious which Sam prefers:

Now, Sam spends time practicing what Daddy is teaching him. Listen as he goes into Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star:

So, now, Sam thinks he's pretty hot stuff. He has started composing his own music. He describes this unnamed piece as "Japanese minimalist."

God has truly blessed us with a child who loves our passions: music and reading. :)
