My name is Maya and I am a classical musician in my profession. I can say that I have dealt with music since as long as I remember. Many people think that classical music is dying today, but I think that anybody who says that doesn’t really know what they are talking about. So I have decided to share my insights. First, I need to tell you how I became a musician and how it enhanced the quality of my life. Maybe my little story can represent the potential of almost every child that has some curiosity and motivation. Also I think that my choice with playing a musical instrument is not necessarily the case but only an example of the seeds that we plant that will eventually grow into a big tree in our lives.
I was born into a typical middle class family. My mother was a teacher and my father was an accountant – nothing extraordinary. Like most of the people in the 70’s and 80’s, in our normal house we heard music from the radio. What you heard on the radio is what you got. No one in our family either played an instrument or had a musical education. The only thing was that the radio was on almost 24 hours a day. My mom told me that I used to go to sleep with the radio on as well wake up with it. And since I was a very happy baby, I used to dance in my bed until my parents held me in their hands.
What would you think about this baby if you had seen one like me in my infancy?
I guess you would say: “She is so musical! She is so talented!”
Was I really so talented and musical? Did I have an inborn talent, or did the exposure to a musical environment make this talent grow?
How can you forecast the future of a baby?
What do you think about this?
I would be happy to have your own stories and comments about the beginning of your musical talent and experiences.
I am going to collect all of your stories and deeply analyze them in order to create new insights about our artistic and musical development.
Basically, I am looking to develop a refined and more accurate methodology for our musical personal development as well as for our children.
