Music lessons for the digital age

When I was in fifth grade, I left my lunch early every Wednesday to take a 40-minute piano lesson with Sister Ruth. She was a retired nun and there was an extra cell in the convent attached to our school that had a lot of windows and an upright piano. She was very kind, but I found the process of learning the piano to be painfully slow.…

Music is an undervalued tool in your parenting arsenal. I've noticed it's so much easier to cook dinner each night if there's music playing. My kids and I can dance and sing and they are in a much better mood than if I just told them to get out of my hair so I can cook! 

MomCave's own Valisa Tate has taken family music time to an epic level with a new video series for MomCave. Introducing.... Mama Jams!

Play that funky music, momma

I like upbeat music. I listen to it when I run, when I am cooking and when I am cleaning. It puts me in a happy mood, which is always a good thing.



My wonderful husband used to be in a band, and his musical tastes tend to run heavier. I had a friend once refer to his music choices as "angry guy punk." (In…

I can't hear you right now

On the long drive back from our vacation, my son was happily ensconced in the backseat of the car with a movie on his iPad and his headphones on. They are those wonderful children's headphones that have a limit on them so the volume won't be too loud in his ears.…

No boy bands for me

As my family left a science museum on our vacation, we passed hundreds of girls lining the streets near a local arena. They were dressed in fan gear - shirts, shorts, socks, buttons, jewelry, hats - from head to toe and were holding signs, banners and flags for One Direction.

My son was singing in the bathtub. This is not new. What was new was what he was singing. There, echoing off the bathroom walls, in his slightly off-key, boys soprano came the classic lyrics of:
