We were providing videography classes for teens who lived in the Metropolitan Housing Authority area. Many of these kids were the second and third generation of their families to grow up in government housing. They met here once a week and worked with a professional videographer to create mini-documentaries. They interviewed the Mayor when they documented how City government works. They went behind the scenes of our local newspaper as they documented how newspapers are published.

One day, I walked out of my office to find one of the kids sitting on a bench and next to him was a young girl, maybe seven years old. I asked, “This is your sister, T? Do you have to babysit today?” He looked up at me and said, “No, m’am. I just want her to know there’s something different.”

Boy tries the violin at the Winston-Salem Symphony Discovery Concert for Kids “petting zoo”
 
 
Last week I entered a hectic third grade classroom to observe our string ensemble performance. Among the students was a child with Tourette’s Syndrome who was unable to control interjecting ongoing commentary into the room and a child whose physical hyperactivity had resulted in a “special” seat at the rear of the classroom where his nearly constant jumping in and out of his seat would be less distracting to other students in the room. Quite literally the moment the music began, the child with Tourette’s became silent, smiling and transfixed by the music, and the only physical activity from the darling little boy in the back of the room was enthusiastically raising his hand to be called on when the musicians asked students to talk about what how counting musical rhythms was like the fractions they were learning in math class. I will never forget this remarkable demonstration of the power of music as perhaps the most universal language we humans innately understand and share.
