We need more of this.

A friend send me a link to this.

"The most hopeful sound on earth" is what Neil Finn, of Crowded House, called this group of 10-year old kids from a school in New York. Mr. B, their music teacher, uses youtube and their blog as an effort to "promote the benefits of keeping the arts an integral part of the school curriculum".

I think this is inspiring stuff and another good example of how all our free tools like youtube and blogs can shine a global light on amazing, yet local, stories.

Fair play to Mr. B
