Gyllian Lozano has created an amazing academy located in Santa Monica, Ca. USA. Gyllian personifies joy I could never imagine. This is her life and she cares about people more than words or any passion could ever capture. I was thrilled to meet her. Gyllian is nothing short of stellar.
I was lucky enough to attend her winter recital on 12/6/09 and saw over 30 performances that left me wanting more. I have never seen so many happy kids with so much talent in one concert hall.
I had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca Rice who teaches and plays piano like magic at the academy. Rebecca is simply outstanding and you can read more about her accomplishments on the Academys website. She's very warm and just loves people. Incredibly talented and gifted.
I also met Jon Dinerstein who played piano for so many of the children performing and his work really increased their confidence. Jon is a creative genius. Jon graces YouTube and I'm still looking for the video that features the children so you can see this super entertainer at his best.
I heard the greatest Christmas music ever and these students are on top of the world.
I highly recommend Green Brooms Music Academy and make sure you meet Gyllian. She is simply incomparable and is helping these children in so many ways. Gyllian is a symbol of hope and is helping these children build futures. Gyllian is more than a Christmas Angel. Gyllian is music...
I'll see if I can locate some YouTube favorites to post. Please check back with me or email me for more information.
These people have so much love in their hearts and it was an honor and even breathtaking to see them all play together and create harmony you'd think was perfect.
Some day, maybe, there will exist a well-informed, well-considered, and yet fervent public conviction that the most deadly of all possible sins is the mutilation of a child's spirit; for such mutilation undercuts the life principal of trust, without which every human act, may it feel ever so good and seem ever so right, is prone to perversion by destructive forms of conscientiousness. - Erik Erikson
