MUSIC - THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE
This past September, I had the incredible experience of seeing Elton
John in concert. Elton burst onto the music scene when I was a teenager, and I played his songs
endlessly on my record player. It probably drove my parents crazy!
After seeing the movie about his life, "Rocketman" and reading his autobiography "Me," I
learned how crazy and messed up Elton's life became with his surging fame. It was incredible to
see him in concert, back-up by other "mature" musicians. They are still outrageous talents, but one could clearly see how much they loved their music. It gave me goosebumps all night long!
I was also blown away by the concert attendees' age range, all enjoying the musical experience.
It reminded me of the importance of music in this world and humbled me that I am a part of
music education. Few students will reach the success and fame of Elton John, but music can
make a tremendous impact on anyone's life. Music can be a lifeboat in our crazy world.
The teachers at KDF Music Connections understand what I am talking about and are
passionate about what they do. We teach many different instruments at various levels. We
especially love to start the musical journey of the "day one" beginner. Also, know that there is
always time to learn an instrument. Give us a call at 833-253-3232 to get more information.
Happy holidays to all our students, past, present, and future!
