I cannot express how grateful I am in a blog post, but I will give it a try. Yesterday while inquiring about percussion and rhythmic instruments for my private practice with a reputable music store, I struck up a conversation about nylon strings. Realizing that I could not put the strings on my beginners Fender acoustic, a sales associate and guitar specialist went out to the storage shed, brought in a beautiful classical yamaha guitar, and said "It's your's if you wan't it. I would rather have it go to good use with the kids than just sit and collect dust". As a result, I now have one of the biggest equipment expenses out of the way and I owe that to the kind retailer and my friends and venders who have supported me throughout this process. Instead of describing music therapy (which I will in the next few days) I wanted to take the time on this rainy but positive wednesday and thank the people who have helped me along the way. A special thanks to Tim and whole staff at B&B Music in Lewes, DE; Matt Latocha, Melissa Martin, Sydny Arstz, Tyler Mock-owner of Record Picks, and Anthony Baray (co-owner/operator of yourbeachlife.com). I am humbled by the community support and if I missed anyone, I apologize. I am close to founding my first therapeutic group and there are several obstacles to come. But having a supportive community makes trying worth all the while. THANK YOU!!
