What Type of Music Does Your Soul Sing?

It has been found that music can change behavior. The right kind can turn depression into joy, anger to calmness, hate to love, and fear to courage. Beautiful music has an effect on people and it can soothe and take away feelings of frustration and anger.

On a Saturday morning I was invited to listen to some music and take a few headshots of an amazing musician.  I had no idea what kind of instruments I would see nor what melody would ring through my ears, and to my sweet amazement, I left feeling like I wanted to go to a musical program.... CATS, Phantom of the Opera, or even Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, and I have such an urge to go.

John Godoy is an amazing artist who studied at the prestigious Juilliard.  He is a percusionist to no end and sure does surpass my melody when I use my pots, pans, and spoons in the kitchen for a pseudo-music lesson with Lissy.  

Speaking of music lessons, John offers music lessons as well!  If you would like his contact information for you or your little one, shoot me an email and I will forward his contact information!  

Thanks for a fun morning John, a little mini concert all to myself!
