Meet Aradonis and her family from South Carolina! She is a veteran and currently a stay at home mom to Jax (3) and Em (1). She is a new member to the Busy Kids (and Moms!) Do Piano community. She has recently returned to piano lessons after taking a ten year break.
Q: What’s your musical background?
I started taking piano lessons when I was in 2nd grade.
Q: Anything fun or unique you’d like to share about your family?
My children Jax and Em think they are John Legend and Alicia Keys.
Q: How do you structure piano lessons/practice for your family? Any tips to share?
I really only get to practice on the weekends because of my husband’s work schedule.
Q: How did you learn about Busy Moms/Kids Do Piano?
Carly actually introduced me to the program after I met her through a mutual friend. I had mentioned that I wanted to start playing again.
Q: Do you have any stories you’d like to share about your musical journey with piano lessons?
I remember wanting to quit after having begged my mom to let me start playing. I was so discouraged because rhythm is not my strong point, but I kept with it and I’m glad I did. Even now, I still struggle to get the rhythm down on a new piece.
Q: What is your goal with learning to play the piano?
I want to start playing again in hopes that my kids will want to play and stick with it as well.
Many thanks to Aradonis for taking the time to share her story with our community!
