Do I have any last words? … Why yes, yes I do. It has be­come clear to me that shar­ing mu­sic with kids is per­haps the most im­por­tant thing we can do to keep mu­sic alive.

With the con­tin­ued cuts in bud­gets for arts in schools, spark­ing the in­ter­est in mu­sic falls on ev­ery­one that can play an in­stru­ment. Steve Walker and Michael Kropp have very cool kid friendly pro­grams.

Stephanie Grace takes her mu­sic to many of the lo­cal el­e­men­tary and mid­dle schools and I’ve had the plea­sure of see­ing the ever smil­ing Matt Bai­ley en­gage a group of kids for over an hour at Turn­ing Leaf Fall Fes­ti­val, for no other rea­son than that they were there, dig­ging the mu­sic.

PLEASE take a minute to show a kid that mu­sic is fun, it lit­er­ally could change a life.

So now, just one last time, be­fore I fade back into ob­scu­rity, I’d like to tell you to: Prac­tice a lit­tle harder, play a lit­tle louder and love a lit­tle more.

This is WTIM sign­ing off.
