CODY AT NHCody Lovaas spreads joy, confidence and calm everywhere he goes. His music puts our students into the zone of sunshine, blue waves and Guitars in the ClassroomGuitars in the Classroomenough time to enjoy life and trust the process. At 16, his career is zooming forward (he has already toured once with his mentor, Jason Mraz), and he remains firmly anchored in the creative possibilities of each moment and the secure foundation of his family. (If there was such a thing as an Outstanding Parents award, his folks would be Allstar winners.)

Guitars in the ClassroomCody’s shows are intensely participatory. He teaches everyone the singable choruses and Guitars in the Classroomrefrains and invites students to come up and ask questions during the show. It’s all hands up every time.

When Cody gives a GITC school concert, high energy percussionist Angela, A.C. Cutrone is by his side inspiring children to clap along and carry the rhythm with her. The simplicity of her portable set up and her warm heart for children draw them in. Here is one such testimonial that turned up from a kindergartener at Luther Burbank Elementary in San Diego this week.

The two of them together give the students in our schools a clear message: Be yourself, stop and smell the roses, ride the waves, connect fully with the people in your life and believe in yourself.  Dare to dream and to devote yourself to achieving that dream. It can happen. Cody and A.C. are living proof.Thanks from K-3
