Music in the Genes

I've been reading how many of the Azerbaijani children love music. My son Carson is the same way. I've been taking him to a class called "Music Together" which is basically a "Mommy (or Daddy) and Me" music class for babies and toddlers from infancy to 4 years old. Carson absolutely loves this class. It's the happiest time of the week for him. He is able to use simple little instruments and dance to the music. Everyone comments on what a happy guy he is when it comes to music because he's clearly in his element. It must come from Azerbaijan because his Dad and I don't have a musical bone in our body.
