With a guitar in his hands, my shy, oppositional 16-year-old suddenly becomes focused and goal-oriented. I’ve watched him struggle for hours to write even a single paragraph, then deftly pick out the tune of a song after hearing it once on a CD. Music centers him, and his passion shows through. I find it baffling, but inspiring.
