George Gershwin wrote Rhapsody in Blue in 1924 and it is one of his best known works. It has been determined that he was the wealthiest composer of all time. His song is the inspiration for this one. That, and the fact that my 17 year old walked by the computer while I was working on it and said.. "Whoa." Yeah. That always works.:)
I was 11 years old the first time I heard this piece of music... testimony to the lifelong impact a really good teacher can have on the children whose souls they touch.
