EVERY DAY, I’M THANKFUL FOR MUSIC. Somedays, when I find it difficult to write or express my thoughts, I simply open my mouth and start singing.

 Regardless of the song, singing usually provides my best inspirations. Singing always lifts my spirits to greater heights--while it helps remove all doubts and sadness.  I learned a long time ago--it’s impossible to cry and sing at the same time.

 My original music with catchy lyrics.... encouraged my special needs students to sing---which made teaching easier and learning more fun. “Don’t worry if it’s not good enough….for anyone else to hear…..just Sing, Sing a Song!”

I recall how my special needs students especially loved one song I wrote---just for them. “Why would you want to be somebody else-not you…you’re so very special.  Why would you want to be somebody other than you…you’re so unique! You could search the whole world over….and you’d never find, but one-of-a-kind, and that one….is YOU...Let me hear you sing it…..”

Music will continue to "top" my Thank You List, every single day. Music has been such a dominate force in my life so---- I can't imagine life without it.
