We’re good! – VISIONS

One of the most moving Feel the Music! moments of 2013 came during our spring percussion concert at the VISIONS Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired:

Teaching artist Bashiri Johnson asked the group: “Who here knows how to play the drum?” Everyone enthusiastically replied, “We do!” Bashiri then asked, “I remember some of you weren’t sure you could learn how to play a drum. Who here now considers themselves to be a drummer?” Again everyone called out, “We do!” One participant added, “We’re good! We should play for more people, people need to hear us!”

As the group cheered, clapped and suggested other places to perform, one member said, “Yes, but we want people to come hear us because we’re good, not because we’re blind.”
