Over the years I've performed as a rock guitarist and singer at frat houses, bars, nightclubs, outdoor festivals, corporate parties – you name it. But I think today's gig was my most important one. My wife and I played a handful of fun tunes for my son's kindergarten class, me strumming the acoustic guitar and the two of us sharing vocal duties.
From upbeat renditions of "Old McDonald" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider" to a couple of gentle Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel numbers, we delivered an inspiring little show to a super-cute and appreciative audience. The kids even sang along here and there and joined us in some amusing between-song banter. Music truly touches the hearts and souls of everyone, especially children.
