A SONG FOR MOCKINGBIRD

Natalie Cressman (part of the Trey Anastasio Band) and Mike Bono have graciously written and recorded a song about music education for the Mockingbird Foundation, for which we are extremely grateful and which we are excited to debut. Hear the track on Soundcloud, or via the following frame. Lyrics follow below the fold.

    TEACH ME

    I never knew quite how to turn the noise around
    To cast a meaning glow, to paint with sound

    Help me spin the trials of my heart into good
    Into potent tunes, easily understood

    To speak my mind without a word
    Cascades of sound you've never heard
    To sing my story clear as a bird
    All I need is you to teach me

    Tones with truth reach past any one tongue
    Felt and repeated by everyone

    Shape and build me up note by note
    Bring my ear to blossom with all you wrote

    I'll speak my mind without a word
    Cascades of sound you've never heard
    I'll sing my story clear as a bird
    All I need is you to teach me

    Standing on your shoulders I see
    All that was out of reach

    What you give, all you pass on,
    Bring journeys that never cease

    I'll speak my mind without a word
    Cascades of sound you've never heard
    I'll sing my story clear as a bird
    All I need is you to teach me
