Improving Their Musical Tastes

As soon as the movie Gnomeo and Juliet came out I started planning to take the girls.  First, it looked cute.  Second, it featured the music of Elton John.  A story they'd like with music I'd like?  What's not to like about that combination?

We went and it was fun.  The best part of it has been the after effects.  The girls are now interested in hearing more Elton John music.  They associate the songs with Gnomeo and Juliet, but also are intrigued that he plays piano.  We talk alot about how he can write the words, create the music and play and sing each song.  This is amazing to them.

In my world, the more Elton John the better.  We've seen him a couple of times in concert -- alone and with Billy Joel -- so we're fans.  The best part is it ups the music quality in our house.  It's not all Kidz Bops and Justin anymore.
