Playing for Change

I recently caught a news story about this music project called Playing for Change, that takes street musicians from around the world and combines their music into an incredibly powerful performance.  

This idea really feeds into one of the reasons why I was so drawn to the Montessori method.  It speaks so strongly to our shared experiences as humans and the respect that we should have for all cultures and lifestyles.  I was thrilled to share these videos with Bella and to be able to talk about the different cultures in each of the places in the songs.  I'm working on teaching her the refrains to these songs so she can add her voice to theirs and feel like she is part of something bigger.

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do:

Stand by Me

Redemption Song


Gimme Shelter
