the boy & the girl are both like chalk & cheese. she is focussed in her studies, hardworking & determined. a science student through & through.
he, on the other hard, is playful, likes to explore gadgets & work with his hands. very likely an artsy or technical sort of student.
& unlike his sister, he plays the piano because he actually enjoys it. so that's why we decide to give him exposure to a second musical instrument when the opportunity came round. my colleague has a cello teacher who comes over to teach cello to his 2 kids. he asked me if i was keen for the boy to take it up as well. since the teacher allowed a couple of trial lessons, we agreed.
we are happy that he has been looking forward to the lessons. hopefully the enthusiasm persists...
