It just seems to me, that everyone does LOVE Music!
While we were living in Fort Lauderdale Florida… there was a Restaurant that also had a Nite Club named “Toppers”… which was having a management change .
Since we were in the restaurant business … with two others restaurants… friends of ours were inquiring of us… to find out if we would also, like to join them with this Restaurant that was located along the North Federal Highway?
My husband LEE, and his brother AL, were invited to a meeting regarding this new business to see… if they had the time to take on a new challenge … and most importantly the connections that you need to make this entertaining business a real hit … with the top entertainers that would bring in the business that this type of business really needed!
Sometimes when you least expect something new and exciting, it just happens to call on you… to give it a good try and to flourish… and low and behold… you have omething terrific to work with… that you never ever gave a thought to doing before… but then…in LIFE… that is just what happens … when you least expect something terrific knocking at your door!
So… on one special occasion, my husband LEE, Sr. did take our young son LEE, Jr. with him … to see and hear all of the things that were going on in the mew restaurant business … they were together at “Toppers” during the day time … while some of the musicians were working with different instruments… that they would be using… for the evening entertainment in the evenings…and one of those men, ask my husband… if his son would be interested in learning to play music?
That was… “Just the right question to ask”… as we were always interested in good music and would like for our children to learn to play music, as it is also… so good for the overall learning of all of the child’s learning at school.
So… for just being in the right place and at that right time in our lives… this man ask if he could bring a small organ over to our home… for our “Little LEE”… to see, if he could teach him how to play the organ and see if he had any interests in learning to read and play music?
So… the above photo… is a photo of our Little LEE when the above organ was delivered to our home.
Since this happened at just the right age and correct time in my son’s LIFE… because he was then able to take lessons and learn to read the music at an early age… it did also help in all of his school work through out all the years he was in school.
At this early age of learning to play and read music…Lee was also able at a later date … to join and platy in the School Marching Band… and then… later on…Lee was able to take Orgon Lessons from the Instructor for those that would learn to PLAY the ORGAN in Church!
So I am a firm believer … that all children should learn to play music at the very earliest of age… as it helps with the developing of all of their learning at school and in so very many more things in LIFE!
