A Pleasant Piano Lesson

My son’s piano teacher came over the other day and Kai played nicely. That is a first.

When Kai’s teacher arrives for the lesson each week, the usual routine has been that Kai runs away to hide in the family room. Then, he acts silly and has to be dragged over to the piano. And when he does start playing, it is only a matter of time before he protests that he does not want to play any more.

So it was quite a surprise this week when Kai walked over to the piano on his own when his teacher came. It was shocking when he played nicely, without protest, a song that he had trouble with just the day before when practicing with Mom. And I almost fell out of my seat when it came time to learn a new song, and Kai paid attention to the teacher and then played the song well.

I really don’t know what caused the huge change. He has now been on a new medication for several weeks, one that the doctor said may take about that long to start working. So, we will be monitoring all of Kai’s activities closely to see if we notice other changes.

I hope this will not be a one-time phenomenon. But, I don’t want to get my hopes too high just yet.

We shall see.


  1. Please keep us in the loop so far as his behavioral changes with the medication. It sounds great that a major change has been seen. A former classmate of Alex's also had a great improvement in behavior with medication.

  2. Will write more as we notice changes. I am still wondering if we will see dramatic changes, or if the changes will be more subtle.
