How different would my career have been if I had owned a digital piano as a child? I asked myself that question today as I taught a group piano lesson and watched the kids enthusiastically pushing buttons to find sounds that fit their songs. Their fingers flitted over the controls with an expertise that comes from life-long exposure to electronics and I found myself marveling at their effortless creativity. I listened as one my 10-year-olds played a beautiful piece of music that he composed and recorded, with drums, in perfect rhythm. I will never forget the joy and sense of accomplishment in his proud smile.
