Review: Time Tracker Mini

I'm a pussy cat dad, a long way from being a Tiger Dad, but I have amped up my discipline on piano lessons, keeping my kids at the keyboard for up to an hour. We've been using Mark-my-time to keep the kids on track for their time commitment. Unfortunately, it is a pretty poor quality digital timepiece, poorly constructed and worn out quickly.

As your child gets older, interaction with teachers is less common, sometimes only during a very brief 10-minute meeting two or three times a year. Parents are often startled to find this process is more like an assembly line that can devolve into an exchange of "Everything's fine. Keep up the good work," which might tell you absolutely nothing.

The Piano Guy has free video lesson of Silent Night

I'm a late bloomer piano prodigy. I decided to learn piano at the same time as started to subject my then five year-old daughter to lessons.

Bein’ a Dad – Still the Best Anthem for Fatherhood Out There

We’ve said before and we’ll keep saying it because if you haven’t heard this song by Loudon Wainwright (he’s Rufus’ dad, if you’re under 40), you’re missing out. At every stage of “bein’ a dad,” this song rings true. The first lines go like this:    Bein’ a dad isn’t so bad    Except that you go ...read more
