Back in the 70's  our very own Topanga Canyon was quite the musical hub and starting point for many popular musicians and bands.  Famous lyrics, melodies, and even screen plays were written right here during that very infamous decade.  So we were thrilled when we started Gavin at a toddler music class right here in Topanga about a year ago.  We thought that if Gavin ever became a famous musician it be so cool to claim he got his start right here in Topanga like so many other great artists :-)!!  Well, Gavin is certainly no musical protege yet, but he really got into all the music and singing every week.  Some of his favorite songs were The Grand Ol' Duke of York, I'm a Little Tea Pot, and The Wheels on the Bus.  It has been a lot of fun and we are very glad Gavin has had the experience.  We haven't been in a couple of months now, since we are very unemployed and extremely jobless at the moment, but we hope Gavin has had a good exposure to music and will love it all his life.  Luckily for him there is still lots of musical exposure in our house.  Who knows, maybe some day he will become a great guitarist or drummer.  You never know.

Looking for the 'mouse' inside the guitar during Hickory Dickory Dock.

Not always a willing participant, but he certainly got captivated by many of the songs including this Three Birds on the Fence song.

Gavin's favorite instrument there.  He was one of the older kids in the group and one of the only ones who could actually play this whistle.  He loved to help out and play it during the train songs.
