Cream Corn Cranberry Chiffon Cake


我对孩子学键盘本来只是抱着让他参于团体的心态,却没想到孩子自己对键盘的热忱让他可以完成“孩童团体键盘”班而正式步入个人钢琴课。

本来七人组的团体到最后一堂课也只剩四个孩子,而我从没想过我的孩子会是那坚执到最后的其中一个。明天(28/7/2012),他将在老师朋友面前弹出他的第一次钢琴演凑 。四岁的他为自己选了“Ten Little Indians" 曲子。

回想这一年多以来,每堂课都必须家长倍伴曾是让我很困扰的问题。那可是本来我可自由上美容院的日子!加上键盘课的时间是那最不实合孩子的下午班,开始上课时好多时候孩子都会因太累了而显得精神无法集中,有过动的现象。记得有一次,孩子过动得过火我气愤的告诉他“如果你不想专心,不想学键盘,那更好!我们现在就离开。” 说罢就拉着他要走,没想到孩子尽哭着说他要留下,他还要学键盘。那是第一次让我看到孩子对学习的任真,坚执。

在看到孩子的热忱后,我诚认我是对他有了不一样的要求。我开始要孩子每天练习弹个30 分钟。好多时候当面对比较难的曲子,他都有“今天就练到这里好了。”的心态。有好多次,练习完后是抱着我哭的。这样的一个孩子对每一堂课还是期待的。

后记于12/8/2012:
上了两堂钢琴课,老师题意孩子报名参加Creative Musicianship Class (CMC),我想学钢琴这回事。。。是来真的了。
