Theme from Mario Bros – Tuesday Tune, vol 90

As was mentioned earlier, we are losing our beloved piano teacher to the city of St. George (insert obnoxious sadness here.)  We've looked hither and yawn for the perfect fit.  Sadly, we haven't had much luck.  My sister mentioned a young prodigy with whom she is acquainted – they're both getting the Masters in Music Mark at a University called Utah – and sent me some youtube video.  He's fabulously talented and perhaps waaaaay out of our league.  Forget the perhaps part; this guy is waaaaay out of our league.

His name is Josh Wright.

After some careful research, I still felt that he was waaaay out of our league.  But then I stumbled upon a little ditty he does with the Super Mario Bros theme.  

One viewing of Mr. Wright and his Mario Bros Masterpiece, and I was hooked.  "I want this boy to teach my boys," said I, and decided then and there that it was worth a shot.  I mean, the worst thing he could say is no, right?  Right!  It's totally worth a shot.

We have an audition with Josh today.  Note that he is auditioning us, and not the other way around.

Wish us luck in the Mushroom Kingdom.  And may we save Princess Toadstool, gather the right amount of coins, reveal the correct question-marked bricks, and defeat all the Goombas and Koopa Troopas.  While we're at it, let's home the Yahoos don't pick up any Fire Flowers, for we want this Mr. Wright seeing the Yahoos in their true colors.

May you and the Yahoos have success with the screening.

How'd it go? I remember trying out for a fancy pants teacher once and I was sooooo nervous. I hope the boys were relaxed and had fun!
