He Will Rock You!

He's the guy who wrote many Queen classic songs,
including this one that has a fantastic guitar ending!

Did you know that the guitar is the only instrument
in this song, besides the voices, hand claps and foot
stomps? Also, the guitar was handmade by Mr. May
and his father from an old wooden stove! True story!

2006 Christmas Collection Holiday CD! It includes
my original version on the song Christmas Is Coming
and my original music for the classic story, 'Twas
The Night Before Christmas (A Visit From Santa)!

Happy Vacation, Everyone!

Rockin' Ragtime!

We had a former student (and Mrs. Saldana's son)
visit the Music Room today and share his talents!

He's as big a fan of Scott Joplin as I am (maybe more?)

Inspiring a student's love of the piano!

Even squeezed in a classic from Jelly Roll Morton!

And the Thomas The Tank Engine theme song, too!

Pajama Day @ Jefferson!

Such a fun way to end the 2017 year...

Jingle Bell Rock...

Staff and Students getting into the holiday spirit...

Cool Guitars!

One of our 5th graders has a really cool 
guitar! His grandfather made it for him!

"Two Different Worlds"

One of my favorite new songs... and one that all of 
my educator friends can surely relate to and enjoy!

Ed Sheeran and Sesame Street fans will love it, too!

Sing Along!

If you're looking for something to do during vacation...

One More Week To Go...

Hang in there, everyone!! We can make it!!
