why music matters

“Music gives us hope when there is none; inspiration for positive change, delivering us from the doldrums of the everyday. It is a songbird that bridges cultural barriers of class, language, and religion, stopping but briefly to spark the embers of our innermost soul.”

8mm of music

Here’s a clip from 1980 of me playing some good old fashioned YMCA “T” ball.
