Got 20 minutes? Watch this video from TED. In it you'll hear about a piece of software called, "Hyperscore" (http://www.hyperscore.com/) and you'll see and hear about how it was used. Watch the REALLY cool music that some kids are making using some VERY creative instruments. You're going to want to download Hyperscore, I'll BETCHA.
Then, stick around for a very moving performance of an original work by Dan Ellsey, a 34 yr old with Cerebral Palsy. Be prepared. This just might move you to tears.
OK, send this to your favorite music teacher RIGHT NOW!
I think my invitation to TED got lost in the mail. Can someone check on that? :-)
