It was truly wonderful to be included as one of the musicians for the first and second Universal Music Day festivities. I am excited about doing it again this year. I am a firm believer in the magic power that music has in unifying all people from all walks of life. Music is a peace maker, a common expression of how we feel as human beings. If we have Arbor Day, and other such holidays, then we aught to have a day dedicated to All kinds of music. I’m really glad you thought of this, and even more astounding, that you were able to realize your dream. When I was interviewed by Carol Anne Johnson of the Apollo Project, for her internet radio show, I mentioned that I had met them at UMD, and that you are the founder and that you had given me a chance to show my creative talent. So a little publicity for UMD is being broadcast each time they ere my show, all around the world.  I just forgot to tell you about it. Continue your great work,

From a fellow peace singer, Sharis

“Parents and children alike will flash a big smile at the sight of the ‘ABZ’s of Musical Instruments’ a most unique and captivation technique of introducing children to music. The dazzling bright colors highlighting the alphabet, as well as the wide selection of instruments, will educate, delight and capture the attention of both parent and child. The extensive glossary of the many unfamiliar instruments adds to the usefulness of the book.” —Johnnie Osburn Dent, Veteran Librarian and Recipient of The New York Times’ Librarian Award 2001 for Outstanding Community Service.
