Third Grade - Listen now!

The song Third Grade was written for my youngest of 4 boys.  The song stemmed from a discussion regarding his favorite line from a movie in which the antagonist says, "I didn't graduate third grade for nothing!"

My son asked me to write a song around this idea.  

This song, when played live or from a recording, touches people more deeply that I expected.  It is a tale of growing up and facing the obstacles of life and the journey to adulthood... and the perils and joys we find along the way.

Written with many personal experiences and memories, "Third Grade" is a "Coming of Age" story that resonates easily with many.  

Studio production was just completed for the audio at Audio Refinery in Amarillo, Texas. 

I believe that the cinematography that Kuker Films will provide for Third Grade will make it even more powerful. I want to remind people that the important things in life are the really simple things.  Kindness, being with your loved ones, and the joy of simplicity.  

ALL funds raised will go 100% to the production of this project. Please listen to the song

Will you partner with us to bring this idea to life?
