52 Weeks of Sisterhood: At the Music Store

Our local music store is like something out of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. I’m dating myself here, but remember that little music shop? Please say I’m not alone here.

Anyway, the music shop on his show had every kind of instrument and our store does, too. Trumpets, clarinets, saxophones, violins, violas, cellos, and guitars of all kinds.

We usually arrive about 10 minutes early for my 11yo’s weekly guitar lesson and so the game is on to see how many instruments both of my girls can try out in the showroom before the lesson begins. They usually check out the bongos or the piano – bypassing the standard little kid instruments like maracas, triangles and cowbells. (which is a shame because everyone knows what you really need is MORE COWBELL).

Today, all the instruments were otherwise occupied so my little musicians gravitated to one of my all-time favorites: the drums. I’ve always had an affinity for drummers. In fact, now that I think of it, I’ve dated three drummers in my little life. Weird.


Let’s just say my girls are not drummers. Well, not yet. Who knows? Maybe one of them will want to take lessons. Until then, I will spare you the video of random banging of snares and share this photo instead.

  1. More cowbell!

    I had an affinity for drummers, too.

    I’ve heard it said never ever be the drummer. Then the whole band comes to your house to practice and eats all your food.

    Your girls show it would have its charms, though…

    Thanks Lori! And I think you’re right about band practice – two of the guys I dated way back when always had practice at their house / apartment / garage – guess it’s just easier to move a guitar than a whole drum set 🙂

  3. I’ve got to have more cowbell!

    We used to take music lessons in a store like that. Until our guitar teacher went back to school. Every week was a chance to touch every single thing not nailed down…

      That’s exactly what my girls do too! Thanks for commenting – and thanks for starting Microblog Mondays. I’m trying to participate a little more frequently. Take care!

  4. Oh, I hope you girls get a chance to learn a musical instrument. Even if it’s the drums. There should be more girl drummers.
