Music to my ears...
But! Today is a new day and we're up and running! Yay us!
So...music education. I've mentioned how important music is in my life and how I started a music education program with couple of friends a couple of years ago. Well it's not all glitz and glamour but yesterday was one of those days that makes you really appreciate the cool stuff we get to do. One of the things we do for our students is invite local musicians into the class room to share their music and experiences with the students. Yesterday my partner Clay arranged for local musician Amber Padget from the band "spider silk dresses" to play for one of our classes and I got to go hang out and watch our work in action.
I want to thank Amber for coming out and doing this for us. It was a great day. Amber was fantastic and the students were attentive and had several good questions for Amber about how she got started playing music and what her music meant to her. I've always thought that it's important to have musicians play for the students so that they can see the practical application of the skill they are learning.
