This parent always knows the names of the pieces he's playing. All my parents know is that beethoven and mozart were composers, and assume every single piece i've ever played was written by either one of them......
Every time I start playing a piece when my Gran is over, she asks "Oh - is that Clair de Lune?" Unfortunately it never is, but she seems to enjoy the music regardless!
This week I have decided to actually learn "Clair de Lune" so next time she asks the question I can say "Yes it is!" Then she'll feel all pleased!
My mum didn't produce flash cards, (great idea though!) but just played to me all the time, and bought duets for us to practise together. She had got to grade 5 years ago, and gradually it got to the stage where I was helping her learn her part rather than the other way around - lots of fun and we still play them all the time
