This post is part of a month-long series. You can read the rest here.
I found this video yesterday doing some research for the high school music classes I teach. I yelled out “WOAH!” in the computer lab at about 0:42. Thankfully, no students were present, because another faculty member heard me, joined me to watch it, and she yelled out, too. (I made a new friend! Yay!)
I think placing this video within this post serves two purposes. It proves that I am totally nerdy about music, and it proves that we’re all wired to be musical. (Side note: When Bobby says “everywhere” in the video he means everywhere — not just America.) I’m a musician because I’m human, and I’m a musician by profession. Removing that from me would rip out a huge part of my identity.
More tomorrow on how my new normal and music are working together…
