Seth's Musical Debut

Steve started teaching Seth guitar lessons a few months ago. Steve had his first ever guitar student concert last night, and Seth played two short songs.  There were almost 100 people there, so we were really proud of our 7 year old for memorizing his songs and playing in front of a room full of (mostly) strangers!

This video is from his practice run-through right before the concert started. During his actual performance, he was slightly more distracted and even stopped at one point and said to his cousin Austin in the audience, "Sing it with me Austin!".  Since he has grown up seeing his Dad on stage his whole life, he doesn't realize there is anything to get nervous about!  But there were already about 30 people in the audience when he did his practice run.

Here he is, playing Happy Birthday and You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift.  I love how he looks up a couple times during the songs just to check out who is watching him!

Absolutely fabulous!! Hopefully he'll never realise there's anything to be nervous about. :)
