Elijah is playing around, tonight, on the piano.
We said we'd just let the video camera roll while he played. He starts with a short melody by Diabelli, then ends up with "Camptown Races". He is getting much more patient with himself when he makes mistakes. Sometimes he'll play one hand in a different key to see if anyone notices. Then he laughs and plays it right, and we all cheer!
He's experimenting with new chords on his "old" songs – neat!
It's such a joy to see him loving the piano. He plays any keyboard in sight – it's irresistable to him
