What a gift piano teachers are giving to their students! Just listening to music can heal, empower, and inspire, so giving students the ability to create music is that much more powerful.
Music certainly drives me. It gets me through torturous long runs, it focuses me while I work, it re-inspires me when I’m down, and apparently it makes me get all “watery-eyed” when watching commercials. Now it could be the fact that I have a beautiful 4 year old girl heading off to her first day of preschool today and another baby girl on the way in October, but watching this commercial definitely gave me that “chicken-bone-in-the-throat” feeling. (Watch it a second time without volume and you’ll immediately see the difference a little piano music makes.)
