It's not my job to teach you to play - it's my job to inspire you to play or move or feel.  If you are inspired, no one can keep you from learning!

 "Every morning, I open my ears and they engulf the morning chorus, the feline heartbeat, the female breath all in perfect rhythm. A new day, an auditory discovery unlike any other. The rhythms, the color, and with it fulfillment, come what may..."   Jim Roberts
