Looking for a new guitar book? Look no further, I found one for you!
It’s the story of lifelong musician Buzzy Martin, a music teacher who became the teacher to many hardened criminals inside the walls of San Quentin Prison.
Buzzy began teaching at-risk kids about music to help them through the trial of their daily lives. Through this experience he was given the opportunity to teach a music inside “The Q”.
Intimidated at first by the brutal surroundings, he soon found a common language between him and the inmates – the language of music.
He returned to his younger students with stories about the realities of prison life, desperate to teach them that prison was not a streetwise “badge of honor.”
The dangerous paths down which they were headed could be replaced by real dreams, hope and the redemptive muscle of liberating jailhouse rock! And it was Bussy Martin’s dream to make it work.
“An unusual tale and a very risky one…I was very moved by Buzzy’s book…It shows the human spirit does make a diference…check out this book!” – Steve Lukather
I read the entire 189 page book in 3 days. I am not a fast reader — I just couldn’t put it down once I got started.
The story is true, but more importantly, the story is real. It’s the story of how music changes lives. I highly recommend this book.
