I like teaching both children and adults, but you never get things like the picture above from an adult. One of my little guys drew this and gave it to me. He was so proud of it and kept checking to make sure I had it in a safe place. At his next lesson he explained all the details and even "played" it for me. I was impressed that he even remembered to add in rests and repeat signs...we'll overlook the backward stems just this time! hehe :)
Somewhere in my files I have some papers that look like this from when I was little. And even though I've advanced to using music software for composing, it's always good to have a reminder that this is where it starts!
