Don’t ask me how I came across this. (Okay, it was a related video to this one, posted on Facebook by NPR.) Here, for your viewing pleasure, are some middle school kids (12 year olds I think) playing Ozzy Ozbourne’s Crazy Train on xylophones.
These kids just look they are having so much fun. They are so into it. I love the kid in the “rock on” t-shirt rocking his little mallets, and the one right in the back with the giant bass guitar.
I really hope that when my kids are a bit older, they can be so thoroughly involved in something that gives them so much joy. Hats off to this very special music teacher also.
