|Barbara Dover with Wynton Marsalis at the Straz Center.|
We had the most wonderful inspirational talk from Walter Blanding, tenor saxophone. He told the kids,
Playing an instrument allows them to get to know themselves better and express themselves creatively.
He shared that,
No matter what they end up being or doing, playing an instrument can make them become a better person.
He talked about the therapy of playing a keyboard or something that you can see and strike! He was awesome! I wish I could have videotaped that whole talk; it was at least 10 minutes of advice and words of wisdom!
Such a kind, funny, talented, and generous man.
