MUSIC GARDENS                                        

Lindianne has operated music gardens since 1995, teaching violin, viola, piano, guitar, ukulele,  and mandolin.  Genres: folk, classical, Celtic, gospel, rock, jazz, and country.  All students learn to read music and play by ear.  Lindianne encourages students to form bands.   To play with other musicians develops musicality and personality.

is a perfect example of song + music + history = culture.

Every popular freedom movement has its music and songs.

Humans make history into songs.  The song catches your heart, gets your attention.

When you learn the history behind the song, that story becomes part of your courage, your determination, your freedom.



Military Music helps citizens understand the men and women who serve in America's armed forces.  If you have only a little time, listen to The Star Spangled Banner as You've Never Heard It, the true story of the origin of our National Anthem.  Can you watch this without getting tears in your eyes?  Veterans know that this story is taught in boot camp.  After you hear this story you will never again listen to the Star-Spangled Banner without remembering the amazing feat of the men who kept our flag aloft and saved America.

And, finally, the paratroopers song. In this song a jump goes wrong and the paratrooper dies.  The paratrooper does his duty and jumps time after time until the day when “he ain’t gonna jump no more.” Talk about courage.
