Mike, thank you for sharing. My granddaughter has so much passion for song and dance and is studying to be a Music Educator in junior high or high school. I will ensure she listens to this. She is so fortunate to have had two just as passionate music teachers that helped to guide her journey. God please bless all teachers.
