Casio Keyboard Helps Increase Interest in Music
Summer break has started for many or will be beginning shortly. Giving your child a little boost this summer to explore their hidden talents and interests can be an amazing thing! My 15-year-old son has been tinkering with playing the piano over this last year. We decided it was time to help him occupy his summer, doing something he has a passion for…. playing the piano on his new Casio CT-X700 Keyboard.
Our budding musician doing what he loves best on his new Casio Keyboard
My husband is an excellent piano player but plays strictly by ear making it a difficult task to teach my son to play. We tried piano lessons but his desire to “figure everything out himself” made piano lessons a chore instead of a love. So, we backed off the lessons. Instead, he has been asking my husband for help when he gets stumped but otherwise, learning everything from YouTube videos. I love watching him have such a desire to use his talents.
