Earlier this month, our TakeLessons piano teacher Dee L. from Kissimmee, FL had the opportunity to work with our partner NAMM and perform at the AARP conference in Orlando, Florida. Dee was selected to accompany the AARP Voices Choir composed of conference attendees who performed “Don’t Stop Believin’” and “California Dreamin’” at the conference’s closing session.
This year marks the first time NAMM has coordinated this type of performance. The choir of 40 attendees was assembled and rehearsed on-site, before opening for celebrity guests Whoopi Goldberg, Larry King and 6,000 fellow attendees. According to NAMM, the performance was extremely successful in illustrating the message that anyone can get involved in making music, regardless of talent or experience.
Check out a few pictures from their performance below!
