Music Lesson: Roland Kirk

Remember never to let anything keep you back from your dreams. Roland Kirk was born blind, poor and black in America when it was not a great time to be black.

Here he is playing three saxophones at ONCE! He was an amazing musician.

Music Lesson, Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was born in 1685. When he was alive people did not know how great his music was. It wasn’t until after he was dead for a long time that people looked at his music notes and realized how genius his works were.

He played a harpsichord, which is like a piano but different (the piano was invented while Bach was alive but he mostly played on his harpsichord).

Here are some of his compositions, which these days most people play on a piano. The guy who is playing this is Glenn Gould. He was very eccentric. This means he did things his own way. Sometimes Glenn Gould used to hum very loud while he was playing Bach. Nobody can play Bach quite like Glenn Gould.
