Mommy Moments: Harmonica Fever!

mommy moments

I’ve written in one of my previous posts that my 5-year-old son is fond of playing musical toy instruments. He has a toy xylophone and drum sets at home. Well, those are all that’s left of his musical toy instruments. He used to have a guitar, flute and xylophone, but they didn’t last long. LOL! Last October, he asked me if he could have a harmonica. I have no intention of buying him one because he has lots of toys already, but a fairy godmother heard my little boy’s plea, and last October 20, this cool-looking First Act Discovery harmonica was delivered to our doorstep.

The little boy was ecstatic! He was blowing on this harmonica all day long. He simply couldn’t keep his hands off his shiny and sleek new toy! What’s great about this harmonica is that it comes with an instructional booklet, which identifies the steps to playing the harmonica and gives lessons on music notation, playing chords and moving positions. This harmonica is light and tiny, perfect for my son’s small hands.

“Music inspires learning” is written on the cover of the instructional booklet. I really believe it’s true. Did you know that music helped bring out Albert Einstein’s real genius? Einstein himself said that the reason he was so smart was because he played the violin. According to his friend G.J. Withrow, Einstein dealt with problems and equations by improvising on the violin.

Do you allow your kids to play musical toy instruments, too?

    My eldest plays the piano and the violin. My youngest has not shown signs of wanting to pick up any instruments but maybe in the near future. I am very musically inclined so I always try to incorporate music in our lives 🙂 It’s good that your son has the desire to play music. This should definitely be encouraged. You never know, he could turn out to be the next big superstar!

    yes, music can inspire.. and as much as possible, i would allow my kids to play musical instruments too.
