An interesting story is that one of my dad’s neighbors that went to the Immaculate Conception High School in Jamaica, and she was learning piano, and the melodica was what teachers were using to teach students. It was like a flute—the things you played before you started playing the piano. As they say, it was love at first sight. He never put it down. He just got it from his friend and she never really had much use for it so she just told him to take it and here we are. Its been a long journey but that the story of how it initially got started.
