Calypso has been wired for music since she was born. The ONLY way I could get her to sleep as a baby was to hold her tight and sing to her. (Given that my singing voice could peel paint the case could be made for sleep being her mode of escape.) At 6 months she'd pull herself up and bounce in time when music was playing. She has played violin, piano, clarinet, and oboe. Each teacher was blown away by her ear. She doesn't play guitar....yet....but when I used to take lessons she'd go damn near out of her mind listening to me trying to tune up. She has wanted to take voice lessons for years but was advised to wait until a certain age so as to not damage vocal chords. She's been taking voice for 2 months and her teacher tells me she's coloratura material. I didn't even know what the heck that meant until I googled it. I do know when I heard this on Friday night I welled up.
