A wonderful, fulfilling, productive, and exhausting week!
What stands out to me is introducing an instrument called, didgeradoo, to my students in one of my schools. I learned myself that most people put it in the percussion family, whereas I would have put it in the woodwind family, and a few music scholars have. The kids got a real kick out of it, especially when I played a song on my Ipod which includes this instrument. Very cool!
One of my students has his Bar Mitzvah ceremony tomorrow morning. I know he will be awesome! He is a wonderful, bright, and talented young man and his family is just a pleasure to be with. This kid is an old soul, wise beyond his years. I will still see them all since I start teaching the brother after Simchat Torah.
A lot of apples, honey, and shofar talk and singing this past week and it will continue next week with more hands on, hearing the shofar, and more singing, therefore learning some of the Hebrew terminology for the upcoming holiday.
Well, time to get ready for Shabbat.
Shabbat Shalom to everyone!
