In the video posted on Facebook, Bronkar Lee and his son Elijah were having a beatboxing session. The parents tagged it as “highchair babybeats”.
Elijah was seen nodding and dancing in his highchair as his father, a professional musician, drops the beat.
Bronkar and his wife Cyndi, who is a songwriter, told ABC News that Elijah is exposed to music “every single day”.
“That moment is happening all the time at our house,” Bronkar said. “Our view is that music is just simply another language. That’s all it is.”
The couple said that music helps Elijah sleep.
“When Elijah was tiny and he had a hard time relaxing and settling down, I would take him in my arms and go into our studio and I’d make live beats and music with percussion, guitars, flute, whatever, and I’d make these beats and bounce him in my arms and he’d fall asleep with full-on music. He’s always playing music, we’re always singing together. This is an everyday event in our house,” Bronkar said.
“I remember the first time we incorporated him into a song we tied little bells around his ankles and he was in a bouncy seat clicking his legs along to the music. He was maybe 3 months clicking along to the rhythm,” Cyndi said.
Bronkar said: “He gets it 100 percent. No question about it. He sings with us on key. He understands. He’s cultivating his motor skills. He’s very aware of what’s happening.”
