Alejandro F. - I Never Imagined My Kid Would Practice
By Henry's Dad, 06/28/2007, Guitar Lessons
Alejandro Florez teaches guitar to our Rock 'n Roll obsessed eight-year-old boy with a gentle and persistent enthusiasm I simply envy. Had I had such a teacher when I was a kid learning piano, instead of a knuckle rapping dowager teaching music that didn't interest me, I might have been enthusiastic enough not to resent the 30 minutes a day spent alone at the piano learning abstruse marches. Our son, without thinking about it, practices daily, and we often can't get the guitar out of his hands. Alejandro has achieved this by responding to Henry's love for classic rock and teaching him to play the riffs in these songs. Doing so has opened the door to rudimentary music theory, so that, without it at all feeling medicinal, our boy's learning the basics but having a blast.
