27 Aug Children Play Rock Classics
Cute kids and great music—there is so much to like about this viral music video!
A group of musicians——who range in age from 7 to 12—from Louisville, Kentucky played Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir,” “The Ocean,” and “Immigrant Song” with nothing but xylophones, drums, cymbals, and keyboards. Their music even impressed Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page who posted the video on his Facebook page and wrote “too good not to share.”
We love that these children are being noticed around the world for their talents and hard work. We also think the video represents advice given in a previous blog post on how to keep children engaged in music as they get older. Occasionally diverting from classical, and orchestral music and can make great strides in keeping kids focused and committed to making music.
Based on the group’s YouTube page, the students belong to the Louisville Leopard Percussionists, a group that offers extracurricular music opportunities to local children at little or no cost. The group continues to seek donations and you can help.
