  1. Thank you so much for sharing the successes of the Melodica Men with the Peabody family. Joseph just returned from the Texas Music Educators Association Convention in San Antonio, Texas where he had the opportunity to appreciate the impact he and Tristan are having on an ever-expanding number of followers globally. Every interested visitor to their booth at TMEA was provided an opportunity to try playing a Melodica and to jam with Joe. Watching people enjoy sharing the language of music was a wonderful thing to see.
