Kids and Musical Instruments

Growing up in Puerto Rico I played the drums on an upside down trashcan. We were considered well off. Laughing

Some years ago, I went to Disney World, around Christmas time.
I loved the mello Christmas carols. Thay got me into a good mood.
Thereafter, out in an open plaza of Disney World, some very young men
assembled and thay began to smash the lids of garbage cans
against the asphalt pavement and to beat garbage cans with
brooms and with metal objects, causing very loud noises.
I was taken aback. It was the OPPOSITE of mello; distressing.
It was not to my taste in art; depressing and NOT in the Christmas Spirit.

A few days later, I flew home to NY.
A very nice gray haired lady sat next to me on the plane.
She told me that her son had started a musical band
hired by Disney World to beat garbage cans against the ground.

I did not admit that I knew what she had in mind.
I did not have the heart to express my feelings
about the alleged music, nor woud I be so rude
as to say anything negative about her son.

I just got back from your State.
I was in Orlando; had a good time at a convention & Disney World.

Re: Kids and Musical Instruments

I'm looking for a good charity to benefit that deals with giving musical instruments to kids and adults who cannot afford them, where could I go.

I'm not sure about a specific organization but I'm sure that you could talk with any needy school district in your area and they would gladly accept your donations!

What did those kids call themselves? Did it sound anything like Metallica?

I don't remember, Roger.
That sure woud have been a good name for them, tho.

I am curious concerning the reason
that the human mind does something like making that noise.

When I was there, silently observing,
I was wondering whether thay were affirmatively, maliciously trying to gross us out.

You may be onto something. Little kids seem to delight in annoying siblings and parents. Next step - the world.

Well, my throat.

Seriously! Smile

I had a passion for singing, mind you as a kid and then teenager, the pitch was nice and high, think Witney BUT no where near as good, as I got older, off course, I became a bad girl and continued smoking, so the voice got the "deep husky tone" which I liked actually.

I can't sing for the life of me now, too many years have passed, though I did used to sing weddings and special occasions at the Restaurant I managed and cough, stupidly sang at my wedding as well Smile

My brother went for guitar. But only as a hobby. He was a huge , David Bowie fan. Strange, my nephews, (nearly linked lols) now have their own band and play gigs, 21 and 20 years of age, pretty good I might add.. Matt is the drummer, Scott the guitarist and singer, I tell him he takes after his Aunty.

Strange there was no music talent or desire in our family as in parents and grandparents. I tried the piano but couldn't read the notes, I had a singing teacher that taught me at least the notes as far as singing went... Smile

I watch my "daughter" she was 11 when I entered her life, 14 now.. They change so much, she loved horse ridding, no more.. She loved the flute, no more.. She loved boys, no just kidding... But, the point being is they will change unless it is a passion and I think you will establish as my parents did, that for me, it was a passion and so, singing lessons it was. Otherwise, I agree, you could be throwing money away for no reason when the decide, they are bored, next.
