When we learned that there was going to be a sponsor for the kids to enroll in Yamaha Music School for three months, we were ecstatic! Ria could not finally go on with her violin classes and Roi– he was undecided at first but eventually he chose drums.
Although the kids have been here in Thailand for more than a year already, they still can’t speak the Thai language. We have always thought it was going to be easy for them to blend in with local kids and pick up the language faster than us but sadly, that is not the case because for one, our community has many Filipino families whose kids have become Ria and Roi’s playmates.
On top of that, our kids are homeschooled so they are not that exposed to the Thai language. Anyways, we were a bit worried when we left Roi inside that room for his first day of drum classes. His teacher spoke no English so I was really wondering how in the world he would teach our boy!
Week after week Roi would tell us that he enjoyed his classes and has been mum about his teacher not speaking English. He would just tell us he understood his teacher. Ok, however he did that, it does not matter as long as Roi is enjoying himself and is learning something.
I always get curious but parents were not allowed to get inside the room whenever they have their drum lessons. One day I could not resist but peek and here’s what I saw!
Ok, all my questions were answered when I saw this. I am such a stage mom, I know. LOL. But what else can I do? I am just proud. Very proud!
