Ellis Paul at Weston Middle School - May 17, 2010

Folks,

Here's a few pictures from a songwriting workshop Ellis did with Ms. Hare's English class at Weston (CT.) Middle School this past Monday, May 17, 2010.

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

Just added one more picture - teacher Angela Hare with Ellis - to the album.

Cute, cute cute!

I was chatting with a friend at work yesterday, she has 12 year old son who finds music lessons 'boring' and I told her about how some musicians I know about, in the US, go into schools and teach songwriting (I was thinking of Adam Ezra) and this is just another great example of how to engage youngsters in the subject.

Perhaps, if or should I say when, EP comes to the UK again, he can do a similar class here?

What a bunch of lucky kids! And here I thought discussing The Who's, Tommy, in 8th grade music was cool! :lol:
