I carry a tune well and come from a pretty musical family. I've been singing to DD all day long (not for any reason, just for fun and because I always sing) since she's been born (and before!). We listen to lots of music, and she's also been going to Music Together classes, which she loves, since she was a baby.
DP is truly hopeless when it comes to tune and rhythm.
DD just turned 3, and can't even begin to carry a tune. Is there hope that she'll still learn how as she gets older? Or is it just a genetic thing, and she got DP's genes on this one? (Of course she has no idea that she's singing "wrong" -- I love her little kid singing.)
In case this is relevant, DD tends to do things late developmentally -- didn't say "mama" and "dada" until age 2, etc. (Now she is a total chatterbox who talks in paragraphs -- novels -- all day long.)
