Somebody gave a YouTube video of my son playing the organ ONE STAR!
Stupid jerks. Didn't even have the courtesy to explain the rating.

Oh, did I mention my son is only 14 months old and has absolutely no idea how to play anything remotely consonant? :)

Here's a link to the video in question:

4. I gave him five
He clearly looks like he knows what he's doing, trying to get that sound just right. And he even practiced pointing to someone in the audience. I've never seen a more self-assured performer.

7. He definitely has some talent
I can see him experimenting with the sound combinations, not just randomly pounding like most kids his age.

When he's a little older, say about five or six, you may want to consult a music school about getting him Suzuki lessons.

In the meantime, expose him to plenty of classical and jazz music, say, when you're driving around with him, or just have it on in the background. You want to train his ear to listen to sophisticated sounds.

11. I disable the comments and ratings for my little kids' cheer team for that
very reason. It would hurt their feelings terribly to get low ratings. Not to mention the kind of language that often gets posted in the comments.
