Sean has always been artistic, I know I’ve said that before but he is. He picked up guitar class as an elective a year or so ago and in the last year has shown a real interest in music.
Both learning to play the guitar as well as put together his own melodies. His teacher was amazed at the change in Sean from last year and said he wished he could take credit for it. He also is surprised and how quickly Sean can finger pick with two fingers, his preferred style. He’s a great and very supportive teacher.
Previously Sean played at the school’s “coffee-house”, but the music class also puts on a showcase, inviting friends and family of the students to watch the performance. Tom and I both attended this one and it was a lot easier to get both photos and video of the show.
Sean was in two performances, one where he played and one where he sang and played. I’ve been forbidden to post the singing one (he’s very critical of himself as he’d never sung before) and was very nervous. I posted it to my friends/family on Facebook though, that he was okay with (though still grim about it).
He said it was okay to post his instrumental though…
We were both really proud of him. I’m glad he let us come, I would have hated to miss this.
