Joshua (5 1/2 years old) is learning some simple piano accompaniments to his favorite Bible songs. His repertoire is up to two songs and three different chords. He's doing well. However, keeping a steady beat and staying in rhythm seems to be a challenge. This morning, with his guitar, Claude gave Joshua a mini lesson in keeping time.
As they clapped/strummed the beat, Claude said, "While you're playing you have to keep this rhythm in your head all the time."
"Yeah, like you're brain is thumping!" Joshua replied.
