Josh has been working on a play over the last three weeks, yet he never missed a beat when it was his turn to jam.
The teacher who teaches the class before me told me that three of my students made up a little song in the preceding class.
It was super-cool to hear about . . . and . . .they still had enough energy to rock the house for my two hour class!
So today was the first day of the new day program. I had only two students, but we had a great time and made a big happy sound.
It may take a while before my old students or any others can start again. Hoping for the best.
Today is the second to last day before the program changes. It’s been over a year and the Music Factory has remained Happy.
Many have come and gone, and a few remained the whole year through.
Those that have gone, left with a stronger voice. Those that remained have learned to share their thoughts and feelings through songs of their own invention.
It’s been a good year.
Josh started off the Happy Music Factory session with a group happy birthday song for Skye.
Skye responded with a wonderful song about things she did on her birthday while strumming a guitar donated by the Stone family.
Skye shared the guitar with Margaret who sang an awesome song based on Do-Re-Mi.
Billy kept the beat on the djembe. He helped count out the beats during rhythm exercises and dispatched well deserved accolades to his fellow musicians . Billy is composing a beat for one of the first original HMF songs!
Josh and Marie broke into Bye Bye Love, which merged into a medley including This Land is Your Land and the theme from WKRP in Cincinnati.
By the end of the session, everybody was pooped out. Spontaneous creativity can be exhausting!
