    The next time your down in the dump and upset because you feel that you deserve a Ken Smith when you are currently playing a Jay Turser, watch this.

    Wow. And the tone of that cello was impressive !

    Imagine what the builders could do with some sound raw materials.

  14. Watching this has mixed blessings for me. On one hand so amazingly proud of these people seeing the importance of making music at any "cost". On the other hand angry that why in AMERICA we are taking music out of our children's lives because "music is not important to education".

    Just a reminder that we really need to use the resources we have to continue music and arts in our public schools!

    Very cool. I think I might try building something at home now. Whenever there's another "Maple or Rosewood" war, I'll just link this....

    Same here. All too easy to forget just how fortunate and blessed we really are. It's like "why am I here and why are they there?" Sometimes I just don't get it. Really makes me wonder how I rate.
