One of Our Favorite Movies Unexpectedly Came to Life!

One of my all time favorite movies is the "Back To The Future" Trilogy. I think the overall concept, execution, story line, acting, and music come together to make one of the most perfect movies ever. My son has been obsessed with the movies since he was 6 (he'll be 10 in a few months), and it's nothing for him to binge watch all 3 movies back to back on an afternoon. Often times, when we're driving around, he pulls up the movie's soundtrack on Spotify, and we listen to the wonderful score by Alan Silvestri. Did you know, at the time the music was recorded for the film, it was the largest orchestra ever assembled for a movie?

 

Last month, we had the opportunity to go to California for my cousin's wedding in San Diego, and my daughter was the flower girl. We've never been to California, so we decided to make the most of it and spent a couple of extra days sightseeing. We went to the San Diego Zoo, spent 2 days at Disneyland, and were sure to put our feet in the Pacific Ocean (it was COLD!). We decided to take a road trip up to Los Angeles to do some 'touristy' things. We went to Mann's Chinese Theater and saw all the handprints in the sidewalk of celebrities, as well as the Hollywood Walk of Fame where all the movie & music stars have their stars on the sidewalk. My wife thought it would be cool for us to get a picture in front of the iconic "Hollywood" sign. So we put it in our GPS and began driving around. Not knowing much about L.A. and blindly following the GPS, it brought us to Griffith Park. We began driving up this really big mountain with lots of twists and turns. As we are about 3/4 of the way to the top, we come to a tunnel in the side of the mountain. As we are driving through the tunnel, my brain is firing that this tunnel looks familiar! We get to the other side and it hits me! I pull the car over, pull up YouTube on my phone, and low and behold, my brain was right! We had just gone through the tunnel used in the famous Hoverboard / Biff chase scene in Back to the Future Part 2! My son's eyes lit up with excitement! It was cool to technically be "on set" for one of our family's favorite movies. Looking up the history of the tunnel, we saw that the tunnel has been used in several movies, including "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (it's the tunnel that leads into Toon Town).

 

We had to drive through it again just to take it all in, and we even got out and put our hands on it to touch a piece of what we consider movie history. We did eventually make it to the top of the mountain and took that picture in front of the Hollywood sign, but to my son and me, it wasn't as exciting as that "Back To The Future" tunnel. The excitement on his face is something I'll never forget, and it outshines almost everything else on our trip to California.

 

Have you had any great experiences with your family that were unexpected? We'd love to hear about it!

Celebrating Student Achievement - The Musical Ladder System®

The Harrison and New City School of Music are the only music schools in Westchester and Rockland Counties that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests with the Musical Ladder System®. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
 

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!

Pictured Top Left:  Guitar students, Paul & Logan , earned their Master (3 year) trophy & Apprentice (3 month) wristband.

Pictured Top Right: Violin student, Noelia, earned her Rock Star (1 year) trophy & wristband.

Pictured Bottom Left: Piano student, Gabriele,
