The Ladies Will Swoon

I'm so used to hearing Bon Jovi, Linkin Park, Journey and Green Day that I wanted to kiss Spencer's piano teacher when I heard she'd given him the theme music to Braveheart.


He doesn't believe me that someday he'll be very glad he can play stuff like this. I don't expect anyone but family to listen to the whole thing--he doesn't quite have the end down anyway--but it really is a beautiful song. So much more calming than Scorpions.

He's already got one young woman to swoon. My two year old daughter heard the first notes come from my computer and came over to watch. She made me listen to every second, and is now saying, "More? More payin' mama? More?"

You're absolutely right--chicks dig musical guys! Which makes me glad my son who's about the same age is great a piano. Woot!

Hey! Mine plays piano too! The piece your son played was beautiful. You're right. One day they will appreciate it. And thank us publicly maybe :)

Mine is into anything Woodstock now so that's the sound here. He has proclaimed himself to be a real hippie now. LOL.

He's quite talented. Good job.

Carina said...

Oh yes, guys who can play the piano are in high demand! It's a beautiful song and he's doing well with the rhythm and feeling of it.

Flea said...

He plays so nicely. :)

I can hear Mel now..."I love ya, always 'ave!"

Fancy finger work! Excellent playing!

It is a beautiful piece of music. That would be a nice melody to hear through out the day. IT is soothing. And girls will definitely dig it.

Marketing Mama said...

That is beautiful! He played it so well. :) I wish I had someone to play to me at my house! Have a great weekend!

Bravo, Spencer! Bravo!

I took 12 years of piano lessons, and I'm still grateful for the variety of music I was given. It has come in handy.
Of course, now I have to go buy the Braveheart music.

That was very nice! I wish he lived closer and I'd recruit him to play in church- always looking for nice musical numbers.

Okay. So it sounds as if ALL of us, so far, listened all the way through, Michelle. Does that automatically qualify us as family?! Beautiful tune. Nice job, Spencer! "From: Aunt Suzie"

That is cool. I have hopes that my children will learn to play instruments...if they take after my husband, they might have a chance.

Jenna Consolo said...

Well, I listened to the whole thing. Twice, actually. I'm a piano teacher, and this was great! I'm gonna hunt down the music and use it too! He did a great job!

Ditto here. My five year old daughter heard the music and came over and saw the video and said, "I like that guy." My 11 year old has begged for piano lessons for at least three years. I know later on that she will wish we had let her. For now she has to be content with choir and Orff.

I love my husband BECAUSE he plays the piano...Can you send us the music?....love it. Tell spencer that the ladies will swoon...and did I just say that because I had the same thought or because I already read the post title...not too sure.

Reno said...

I just had to get the music to Braveheart after listening to Spencer play it. My granddaughter told me that he was a lot better at it that I am.
He's my inspiration!
