We've recently had the opportunity to work/play with students from Merrill Middle School and Read Elementary School. Although our goals have not been performance oriented, a group of students decided they would like to share their love of the music with the Oshkosh Area School Board. See the video below.
The students are a mixture of ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. Some are just learning english. Watching these students find and share their creative spirits with others has been a real treat! Helping them learn to use recreational music making as a coping mechanism to help deal with the many challenges they face has reaffirmed our dedication to our mission. And the smiles they unleash while playing...super fulfilling!
