Yesterday I posted about 5 year old Wesley's cover of Folsom Prison Blues. Wesley's guitar teacher is Rob Hampton (blog) and every year Rob has a Spring Coffee Shop Jam where his students perform for family and friends. You can see a number of these performances on his YouTube account (srmaximo). Another of his students is 9 year old Emma. Emma's "guitar" lessons are really lessons in guitar, keyboard, singing, songwriting and recording. Here is a video of her performance of Snow Day, a song she wrote. I love this song and performance. Enjoy!
