I was born into somewhat of a musical family. Both my parents sing, I try to sing and one of my brothers is a great musician (jury is still out on my youngest brother). I know that in a lot of families pursuing music is frowned upon, but in our family music is almost a requirement to be part of the family. You just must be able to jam.
I am always hopeful that my daughters will carry the music gene and that one day their musical ability will mature… and I pray every day that they will have rhythm! But for now, I smile when they pick up an instrument and attempt to make music.
