  • Down Down Up, Down Down Up....the rhythm is gonna getchya. Saturday in Santa Theresa village was a LOT dryer than Friday's rain soaked journey and experience. We got going a bit earlier, said a quick howdy with Charlie Joe to our innkeeper Duwane, snagged a killer breakfast of coffee, eggs and fry jacks (a fried slightly sweetened bread you dip in maple syrup--yep, they're gooooood!) and we were on our way to the jungle again.

  • I, IV, V--for the non-musical readers among us, those would be the named numerical identities of the 3 main chords used in a Western Music Major key: the 1 chord (the key you're playing in/ the dominant tonal center) and the 4th and 5th chord of the scale progression. Honestly it's not deep theory, it's not overly complicated; but when it's explained to a young musician and they "get it" it actually is a bit of an "of course!!" kind of moment. But...somebody has to teach it, show it, explain it, play it for that moment to ever arrive. Without the clarity from the theory, the ear will often div...

    My task was to assist with the audio component of music. It was one of assessing what was there and what was needed. Being from Dry Arizona I was surprised at what damage the high humidity and dusty rural conditions can do to audio equipment. I discovered that their 8 channel Mackie mixing board only had 4 channels working, and the Main speaker controls were touchy, which were just a...

  • Today I am compelled to share about what this team has been through to be here in Belize. It has been an honor to serve with each individual on this team. We all come from different parts of the country with all different levels of skills in music but the one thing that we have in common is our love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We were all called by God to meet in Belize and continue the vision and mission of God for this country. This trip has been filled with more that just sacrificing time from our families and careers. I want you all to know that our brother Dan received a call, w...
