I have zero musical skills – seriously none. Dave (who has lots of skill when it comes to music, as anyone who has been lucky enough to hear him play will tell you) taught me half of a whimsical duo one time and every so often I remember a portion of it (you may know it by the fact that you play the portion I know with your knuckles), but other than that I cannot play anything resembling a song or really anything even remotely pleasant to the ear. And perhaps it is because I cannot play that I find it so amazing when I meet those who can and get to watch and listen to them play.
When I met up with Christina and Marc and their absolutely adorable little boy Emmett, I was super thrilled to learn that not only is Marc a musician but they also wanted to incorporate his guitar playing into their family session. Watching little Emmett’s super intrigued face when his dad was playing as he patiently wait his turn to play a few songs was so much fun.
What was even more fun for me was the fact that there was no Raffi or Sharon, Lois and Bram in sight as Marc pumped out some great music for all of us, although all I can remember right now is that there was a little Red Hot Chili Peppers mixed in there somewhere. But seriously, this kid is going to grow up surrounded by some really great tunes!
I had such a wonderful, relaxed Saturday afternoon with this incredibly adorable and super sweet family and I can’t wait to share more photos here in the very near future, but for now, let’s all enjoy a little sneak peek from their session, guitar and cute little boy included.
