Put on a concert for your family or line up some unsuspecting stuffed animals or other toy characters. Plants love music and it’s almost Spring – so go sing to your trees! They will thank you with glorious buds of new life. Remember to share the joy you have for music with others – how about during your next video chat with gramma and grandpa – sing them a song? Or how about try writing a song? The creative musical experience possibilities are endless…
