A former neighbor in our building is a concert pianist and during a recent visit I asked him how he discovered the piano. He told me that when he was a boy he found some old photos of instruments and vividly recalls spending time studying each photo, eventually gravitating to the piano.
Since this conversation, I have been on the hunt for some instrument cards. I had grand visions of finding instrument photos and making my own cards to be reminiscent of the ones my neighbor described. I didn't have much success with a homemade version, but I ended up purchasing these instrument cards online. I have already seen how M enjoys playing with them and perhaps it will help her to discover which instrument, if any at all, is meant for her down the road.
