Welcome to a piece of my world. I grew up in a musical family. My dad played stand up bass in a big band, and could also play a little piano by ear. My mother is a skilled pianist and organist. Put those genes together and you've got a recipe for a unique blend of traditional musical sensibilities, mixed with intuitive gifts for hearing and comprehending all facets of the musical picture.
I fought traditional piano lessons, because I didn't like to read music. When my teacher would play a piece before I learned it, I always had an easier time getting motivated to work on it, especially if it was pleasing to my ears. After quitting traditional lessons, I spent a few years pursuing the normal pre-teen stuff, baseball, basketball, video games, etc. It's important to mention that as a kid I was definitely also a radio junkie.
