10 signs of a musical nerd family

1. You and your husband sing together and pick out songs that have harmonies.

2. You have several copies of the same song in different keys.

3. Your children watch YouTube videos of their parents’ favorite musicians.

4. You have no idea what Kidz Bop is.

5. Your family is vehemently opposed to auto tune.

6. Your children ask in disbelief how you know so many songs. It’s called sight reading.

7. You can pick out individual voices in bands and ensembles. You shush your children at Mass so you can hear your college friend cantor.

8. You show your children pictures and videos of shows that you were in.

9. Your children request show tunes for a bedtime song.

10. You embarrass your children by singing show tunes in front of their friends.

    Sounds about right 🙂

    I LOVE it these days when my kids request to watch videos of shows they’ve seen me play. Also, I’ve recently purchased RockSmith for the XBox — not necessarily to learn guitar properly (though I want to) but so that CJ might want to start playing “daddy’s video game” and pick up the instrument himself.

    One of my favorite parenting moments came listening to the end of the Frozen soundtrack, when there was a pop version of Let It Go — and Leila declared it “not for her.”
