First, let me hug the New Bedford Symphony Youth Orchestra and everyone connected for a wonderful concert!

Although I only narrated a piece with the orchestra, it reminded me how important it really is to to have our children learn to play a musical instrument! Playing music makes our kids smarter, it's fun, it teaches discipline and gives them a sense of achievement! Kids must have an artistic outlet and playing music does just that, while relieving school and social stress!

So, have your children dive in! Oliver Wendell Holmes said we should take a music bath once or twice a week because music is to the soul what a water bath is to the body! So come on, give your kids a Bubble Bath!
