Jon Schmidt Rocks!
He really does. I have some of his melodic tunes on my ipod and loved them so we were so excited when our neighbor invited us to a private concert in their living room (maybe I invited myself with my over zealous enthusiasm...). So everyone we talked to had this excitement when they asked if we'd ever been to one of his concerts--we soon found out why. Jon Schmit is an amazing piano player who doesn't take himself seriously at all! I had no idea he played up-side-down, with his toes, nose and elbows, and rocks out like he's in a band! He was so much FUN and so inspirational for the girls! He takes the stuffy out of it and showed them what fun they could have if they kept practicing. Man, I wish I would've seen someone like him play violin when I was a kid. We were such groupies--we bought piano books and the girls had him sign them. And to top off the night, Bree lost her tooth eating refreshments (hence the napkin in her mouth.) Definitely a journal entry night.
