Please create every possible opportunity for him to play with people. His ideas are pretty pentatonic right now - if he can surround himself with some people who will tech him different note choices, who knows what might happen.
Thank you for the feedback. I'll share it with him and also mention it to his teacher. He does play in a band and also jams with another one of his friends that plays drums. Clearly, he gets much more out of playing with older, more advanced players than he does playing with other kids.
EDIT: WJGreer - I remember. He does continue to improve. It's really fun to watch. Thanks for your advice again. - Chris
