I recently invited James Divine to my school to talk to my students. He talked about his old beat-up saxophone, how even though it is scratched, dented, bent and painted gray in parts, it still sounds great and does its job well. James then related how he has been through some tough times in his life, and although those events have left dents and scratches on him, he can still look ahead to a bright future.
James captured the attention of the students with his humor and seriousness, and kept their attention throughout the presentation. As I talked with the students over the next few days, many of them were still talking about the impact he had on them. Thank you James for reaching out to my students and making a difference in their lives!
