Here is Raquel playing the part of Pachelbel's Canon in D that she has learned so far. Quite an accomplishment! She cannot see the notes on the music, even if it is an inch away. This has to all be done by rote (I tell her the notes). She then memorizes it. This is extraordinary! And there is more to come.
For those who don’t know, Raquel has Wolfram syndrome. If you would like to help please go to Her mother, Stephanie, is one of the founders of The Snow Foundation, which is, I am positive, going to revolutionize the world of diabetes. They will find a cure for Wolfram, diabetes, other genetic diseases and they will find a way to reverse optical degeneration caused by Wolfram and diabetes. But they must have help. Again, please go to

This slideshow is WAY too long!  But it's a great song!  Leaming how to play an instrument and how to make your own music IS magic!

We will add videos as soon as we get them edited.  The next two are about my student Raquel, who is going blind quickly.  The Snow Foundation needs money to fight Wolfram Syndrome. We posted it on this page too just to make sure people saw it.  It is also on the Raquel Gebel page. Scroll down a little further for our students performances.

Raquel is on the upper right next to her dad.  The thumbnail is cut off.
