Our seventh grade students had the privilege of visiting with a special group of musicians this week when Ben Birkbeck, Andy Happel, and Devon Colella, of the Aeterna Trio, joined their language arts classes.
These talented individuals shared their thoughts about the creative process, and what motivates and inspires them. They talked with the students about the importance of
practicing, persevering through difficult times, and finding trusting friends and colleagues with whom to collaborate.
The trio treated our students to several of their compositions, and worked together to create some songs in real time. We were enthralled with their talent, and so grateful to them for sharing their expertise with us, and contributing to our learning.
