“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”  - Aldous Huxley 

We dedicated this page to some good articles, some of them homegrown, about the craft of music and tips on ways to improve the experience of learning.  We also thought it would be fun to give examples of various renditions of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow,' just to see how its approached in differing ways.
