There is Music here

And so, there can be joy🎶💃🏽🕺🏽

What about remorse?

What is the difference between guilt and remorse? How does your conscience play into your personal code of character?

Yes, I’m still looking for your thoughts on “joy”😃🖤💜🖤

More Joy “I WISH THAT I COULD FLY”

What is your definition of joy? If you consider yourself to be a joyful person, please share some thoughts on how you came to this “joy-filled” state of mind and how it manifests itself in real life. I will use any shared comments in my next ATP session to stimulate the creative/lyric writing portion. Thank you for your help.🎵

Let’s Talk About Joy/Session 1 #joy#music#character#activity#creativity

Learn the ATP song “I Wish That I Could Fly” and relate the lyrics to joyfulness🎶

Let’s talk about joy!

This week’s video will focus on joy. Do we have a right to be joyful? Is joy ever inappropriate? How does music effect your level of joy? We will be learning the song, “I Wish That I Could Fly”

Lyrics:

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY

I WISH THAT I COULD HOLD YOU UP

AND SHOW YOU ALL THE CLOUDS CLOSE-UP

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY

HAVE YOU SEEN A PAIR OF WINGS

I CAN’T SEEM TO FIND MINE

WILL YOU HELP ME FIND MINE

Good Friends part 2

Creating the AROUND THE PIANO SPACE

“Good Friends” See you On YouTube🎶

Greetings Music Lovers!

This week on AROUND THE PIANO/Character Building Through Music, we will be exploring the concept of Friendship.

I will teach the song, “Good Friends,” and invite you to dialogue with me about how friendship might play into your personal code of character

 

GOOD FRIENDS

V1:

Quiet as a little kitten.

Or loud as an elephant

Slow as molasses

Or faster than the fastest wind

You and I can stand alone

Or we can be good friends

V2:

We can stand on first impressions

But I think this is worth the wait

Peace might cost moments

But hope is worth much more than hate

Will you teach me how to reach you

So we can be good Friends

Bridge/chorus

I like having a good friend that’s new

Someone who will like me

For who I am now

Not who I once was or might be

For me not for who they think I should be

V3

I can’t tell what you are thinking

And you can’t see into my heart

Trust might come easy

Maybe we just have to start

Can we build on understanding

So we can be good friends

You and I can stand alone

Or we can be good friends

Gifts Given

One of the kindest gifts I have been given in my life is the gift of acceptance. Not “acceptance” as in, “I am one of you now, and so we must agree on the big issues of our time.” The gift is “acceptance” as in, “Wow!I think you are totally wrong about this. I think you have the facts wrong, and the wrong perspective, but I accept that you believe you are right about all of it, and I will treat you as if you might still be a good person-even if each of us standing up for what we believe in means we are facing off.” The gift is accepting my humanity and my decency even if we can’t both have what we want. Having a Personal Code of Character (PCC)doesn’t mean you are right. It means, you will conduct yourself in a way that lets you feel right and walk through life with a clear conscience. Having a P.C.C. does not obligate you to act as conscience for others nor does acceptance have to mean surrender🎶🎵
