In a letter to Grandad Gary:
"Here is the music class that we signed up for: https://www.musictogether.com/about/our-music We are doing the Bongos at the moment. They provide us with a book with the notes and some explanations and a CD with the songs. They are really good and fun to listen to. If I manage I will try to copy them on a memory stick and send them with our card to you guys. The really cool thing is our teacher Robyn. She has such an amazing voice that I would go to listen to her sing even if it wasn't for Max : ) Max has a Coconut Kalimba (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGRWQLifEJw), a bamboo flute (I think), a paruvian maracas, and a harmonica. His father also got him an Angel Glockenspiel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT3nUT7T7kA) but we put that away for now. You can see we are well stocked. (I almost forgot the musical toy that Chris's grandfather made for him - by turning a knob, it plays a song and is mounted on a piece of wood (with Christopher inscribed on it)) On a related note Max has been "blowing" candles, balloons, whistles, and what not and sometimes almost successfully ; ) I can imagine what a metal drum will do to the parents : ))"
