On Friday one of the children in our class brought his guitar to class. There was a lot of buzz around this musical instrument. He was generous enough to play us a tune and to allow us to experiment with his guitar. The children were so excited and they were so careful with the guitar. So many good things were happening at once that it was difficult to take it all in. The children were sharing. They were listening. They were connecting with stories of their own about musical instruments. They were careful when using the instrument. They understood the generosity of one of their peers, and they understood the delicate quality of this instrument. A guitar brings more than just music.
