A high school friend has a goal – my friend who coaches me in marketing my Kids’ Radio Play/Song project. Upon occasion I meet him at Staples Headquarters in Framingham, where he works. We meet in the spacious cafeteria.

Wednesday as we sat at table, I gained insights – not the least of which was to focus my energy on one of my three main endeavors. I now have a beginning strategy to market my kids’ stuff and am shifting my main focus to my album and touring.

So we move on.

Todd pulls from his backpack sheet music to ‘For A Dancer’ by Jackson Browne. https://www.google.com/search?q=For+A+Dancer+Browne+youtube&oq=For+A+Dancer+Browne+youtube&aqs=chrome..69i57j0.5264j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 He’s learning it on piano himself. He’s never played piano – well – until now. I nod, impressed, as he points out the sheet music does not match what Browne plays on piano.

Enter the music theory world – my glory. Because music can be learned and understood through mathematics – and the two to me are magnificent teaching tools – joyous to work in. But you can only go so far without the actual instrument.

So Todd leads me to the other end of the cafeteria where stands a piano surrounded by four guitars on stands – acoustic and electric.

After all, shouldn’t a piano be a staple in all Corporate cafeterias?
