A Little Fun with Jon Schmidt

Caleb's arm was pretty much healed up now.  Although he was still wearing some steri strips to help limit the scarring, he was ready and able to do some fun things on the piano again.  

Recently, Caleb had seen a local pianist named Jon Schmidt on some YouTube videos.  Jon Schmidt is a pianist who seems to have a lot of fun playing the piano.  He is a pianist/composer who writes many of his own songs and fun arrangements of songs that you hear on the radio but mashed together with other songs.  

When he saw how much fun Jon Schmidt had sometimes backward at the piano and hitting it with his arms, Caleb had to do it himself.  We bought the sheet music for one of his songs and Caleb began learning it right away.  This was a song called "All of Me" where it incorporated the use of both arms to smash on the piano to play.  Caleb was all about that!  He even wanted a fancy video of him playing it where the camera kind of circled around him.  Well, we aren't the best camera people, but he had fun with it.  

Here is Caleb playing Jon Schmidt's "All of Me":
