11-28-16 Baby Grand

By Scott Shephard

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart began toying with the piano at the age of 3 and some say that at age 5 was not only playing competently, but also composing short pieces. Ibby (aka Irene Bernice Shephard), at 16 months, may well be on her way to besting Mozart. Who knows?

What she was playing had no discoverable melody and rhythm. But I'm no musician. Maybe she was playing some avant garde melody well ahead of her time. Or maybe not. Mozart was a tempestuous prodigy. I'll take a happy-go-lucky toddler over that any day. :-)
