I showed this in class on Friday.  All my students LOVED it.  They asked to watch it again (several times).

Who knew middle schoolers liked yodeling?

If I had the money, I would commission someone to compose an ensemble piece using all of these things.

…And it would be titled Dining Room Music.

I call the xyloplate.

holy crap, MUST HAVE!

Carol of the Bells - Cast In Bronze 

The mask (and the creepiness) is apparently a trademark of the 4 ton Carillon bells that perform at the RenFest and travel the country.

You’re a liar if you say that you wouldn’t go see this.

I WOULD PAY MONEY TO SEE THIS

Yes please.

I might have teared up from happiness.

Reblogging this again because it’s worth it.

Text 2 Sep 2 notes 'Twas the Night Before School…

All through the weekend I felt completely prepared for tomorrow: day one if school year 13-14.

Now, as I try to fall asleep, all of the things I have yet to do (and have plenty of time to get done) are bombarding my brain. Also, all of the scenarios in which something could go wrong are playing out in their worst iterations.

How do I turn my brain off so I can be well rested for my first day?

Band parents are awesome.
