I went out with Megan (our music student from last summer) last night for drinks and dinner at the Nell - we had a fabulous time. It was interesting to hear her thoughts on Cash's love of music. She says it is fun to play for him because he gets so engaged. She also suggested something I had never thought of - that Cash changes the songs on his toys all the time as his way of being creative since he does not have the fine motor skills to play himself. I find that an interesting idea. Also, we talked about how Cash clearly does not have perfect pitch. He really doesn't care if something is in tune (definitively evidenced by the fact that he likes my singing), so what is it that he does like so much about music? He's liked it since he was very very small, and while he does have preferences, he is pretty much happy with anything. I don't understand it, but I honor it.
Here is Cash listening to Megan play. When she stopped, he signed "more please".
