OLD TOWN ROAD
Michael ("Crazy Monkey Banana Rockstars")
Favorite thing about Keylab: "The Tablet Room... because I get to draw my own notes."
Favorite Instrument: Piano, but also likes guitar and drums.
Favorite Song: THE LONG ROAD by Mark Knopfler. He listens to it once or twice a week in the car.
Songwriting: Michael wrote his first song when he was 7. He’s 9 now. He averages about one new song a month.
Why does the world need music?
So you can listen to something and not get bored.

PRIVATE LESSON HIGHLIGHTS:
Keylab offers individually tailored group and private music lessons both in-home and here at the studio. Here are some highlights from November and December 2019.
Fiorella and Fiona take class together with their sister Keisha to focus not only on their instruments but on songwriting and playing together as a band. Here they are playing their version of Jill Scott’s song “He Loves Me."
Nine year old Milena has been learning to read drum notation, and she did a great job nailing all the parts for ACDC's "BACK IN BLACK." 🎯🔥Fantastic work, Milena!
Silas plays his excellent original composition "Silas's Song"
Rafferty plays his original Christmas song, aptly titled "Christmas Song"
