Sonny, Thank you so much! I'm really happy you liked all the little things that made our story come alive. It was a pleasure to entertain you. I can see you also enjoy creating and composing beautiful things in space and time - thank you for sharing this lovely imprint of your joy and colorful curiosity!

Dear Sophie, Thank you times infinity! Wow... I can honestly say I've never received such marvelous compliments through one colorful prism in my entire life! I am honored. I've been hearing a lot these days about how much homework Middle Schoolers get. I listened to Beethoven Symphonies when I studied in college. My favorite Bros. Grimm story is probably The Bremen Town Musicians because every time I tell it, it finds new depth and meaning.  As a full time musician, I travel a lot. It's my favorite thing in the world - traveling and playing music. Someday a furry friend will be at my side. Some weeks I perform once, some none, and some weeks up to 12 times! Everyday, I see a performance in the world - the harmonies the dissonances - and discover myself in an improvisation rich and diverse, and all I can do is my best all the time and take naps.  I admire your letter writing. Thank you for sharing. Have a colorful school year, Sophie!

Thank you Veiera ~ I love to make teachers laugh! I'm so glad you enjoyed the musical storytelling. Maybe I'll see you perform a story someday!

Malcom, you are a brilliant thinker with an awesome imagination!  I admire how in touch with you are with the feelings of others. I hope you continue to write and create your own work for us to see one day!

Great questions! All my trombones come to me with three parts, made and ready to assemble: a mouthpiece, a slide, and a bell. If I could consider myself a musician, a comedian, and a storyteller all in one, I think my dream would come true! My next performance is right now for everyone with an inner kid who is awake.

Thanks Zachary! Some of my earliest memories are of my mother performing "The Rainbow Connection" in American Sign Language at elementary schools in Lincoln Nebraska where I grew up. I didn't choose her "instrument" but she certainly showed me the way!
