Last night, Matthew put on a "mini" performance for the kids group at a local church. Before he unpacked his dulcimer from its case, he asked if any of the kids knew what was in there. He got a lot of "unique" answers: a piano, a harp, a table, etc! He pulled it out and explained what it was, and as he started to play it, it was neat to see the amazement in the kid's eyes!
I enjoyed listening along with the kids as he played songs like "Jesus Loves Me" and "Do-Re-Mi" . You could feel the enthusiasm in the room as everyone performed the moves to the song "Father Abraham"! Eventually, Matthew wound down the evening with a beautiful rendition of "Amazing Grace". It's nice to see that the younger generation can enjoy fun music on such a beautiful instrument. As we packed up to leave, he got a lot of requests by the kids for selfie pictures, which tickled our funny bones. It was a fun evening, well spent!
