Made it work for her

My 14-year-old niece called me up, and I was asked to listen. Then she proceeded to play the beginning to OneRepublic’s “Apologize,” followed by the opening to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” on her electronic keyboard.

Since she hasn’t really tried to be musically inclined before and doesn’t read music, I asked where this sudden artistic ability came from. She said she learned it by watching the fingerings used in a piano training video on YouTube! Then she just mimicked what she saw, and practiced that over and over.

Now that’s a great example to me of the power of the computer and the internet at work.

Wow, that's cool, too

I’ve visited YouTube many times, but I only scoured it for clips of entertainment, particularly when they were forwarded by friends. I have also seen news items (like one of the Michael Phelps Olympic races that I missed, and NBC.com still hadn’t posted it yet), videoblog podcasts made especially for YouTube, and when friends themselves posted some silliness onto YouTube.

But I never thought to search for, nor had seen, instructional clips before. I will give that a try sometime. Thanks.

And thanks for all the cheers today, sutton. It brightened my day!

Proud uncle will keep this up

Yes, I couldn’t be more proud of her if I were her own father. As a musician, this really…strikes a chord with me. (Sorry to ruin a sentimental moment with an awful pun.) 8)

I will continue to encourage her musical abilities. And the nice thing is that she just started a friendship with a girl at school who loves to play guitar. I think they fancy starting a band someday.

Anyway, so far this new girl seems to be a good influence on my niece, as she seems to be a good person as well. I hope they hang out together for a long time.
