Wow! I like that story alot. Im a huge oldies fan myself. There really is
something to be said about the music of the 50's and 60's....whenever I go
to my studio and paint i usually just listen to the oldies. Maybe its the
famililarity of the music-or just the fun beat...who knows? :)
But that is definitly something Id like to try in my classroom one day.
