The Miller-Rowe Consort creates more than music; they create
a rich variety of listening atmospheres. When I first heard them
perform in Colonial Williamsburg, I realized immediately that their
brand of music was just what I was seeking for my elementary schools.
As the media specialist in an exemplary elementary school in Michigan,
I had set up
a CD changer in the head end room and enabled each teacher to tune
their television to a "music channel." When I placed "Appalachian Sky"
in the CD mix, teachers around the school asked for "more of that kind
of music!" The educators in my elementary schools found the music to be
a wonderful combination of "soothing, contemplative, calming and
energetic." The Miller-Rowe CDs also provided me with many "teachable
moments" about music and history, especially since the hammered
and classical guitar have a rich heritage in America's colonial period.
