X is for Xylophone

My niece, Hope, built a wooden xylophone in my father's workshop with his expert woodworking guidance. She tuned a brand new xylophone and practiced a song with her new instrument built as a school project.

  11. Still remember how we were told to learn playing it - thank you for that memory, which might be running back two and a half decades - can't wait until my small son comes home telling me about his music lesson.
    A wonderful Friday for you all !
