“I love power. But it is as an artist that I love it. I love it as a musician loves his violin, to draw out its sounds and chords and harmonies.”

I remember adding a post in my early days of blogging about attending concert in a school and I lived that moment as a kid.

“A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business, live concerts.” ~ Elvis Presley

I yet again got a chance and that was today and feels so proud to see kids growing up with talents each day with performing better and better.

The best part was that this concert was Musical only ;) – now tell me how exiting it could be when your moment of life has no rhythm without music :D

“Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes
Yes, it so a moment of proud to see kids between 8 to 10 years of age with violin on the stage performing that too six songs by heart without any books, now tell me how many of us can do.. ? Tell me honestly … :D yeah! It really needs that dedication I must say and looking at kids I get my inspiration to grow better at least now ;)

“Music's the medicine of the mind.” ~John A. Logan

Yes this is the Winter Musical Concert at Northwood Elementary School and let me tell you about the Music teacher Ms Amador – She plays clarinet and piano but she teaches all kinds of instruments – that’s something I really felt like saluting as how many of them can show that confidence of teaching? This shows not only the talent but the confidence. I was amazed at the teacher; a few drops of tears came out of my eyes with emotion n respect for the lady …!

“Music when healthy, is the teacher of perfect order, and when depraved, the teacher of perfect disorder.” ~ John Ruskin
Why I say this is because I saw the movie – “Music of the Heart” where Meryl Streep A well-meaning teacher tries to introduce Harlem kids to the joys of classical music.
I would say if you like music you would enjoy this one.

“Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.” ~Alphonse de Lamartine
Finally, a day ended with music in ears and lots of cheerfulness.

“Happiness is a thing to be practiced, like the violin.” ~ John Lubbock

I didn't see this movie. I'll be try to watch.
I love music. When my 2 big kids were little kids (5 yeares old) we go every month to watch classical music concert for kids. It was excellent. One of my kids is musician(piano teacher), but both love music.
Thank you for this beautiful, musical post!

Another chance to watch Meryl Streep after Manchurian Candidate and Angels in America.

Music always creates a harmony/ rhythm between the body, mind and the soul. It's always a best company.
