Photos of Wilsonville (Oregon) High School Life Learning Program students recording at Dead Aunt Thelma's Studio in Portland, using their wonderful voices and percussion instruments they put together from various recycled materials, collaborating with music students Ryan and Nick, and Artist-in-Residence Stephen Cohen, with help from teacher Sally Harris and her staff.


"Out of my 23 years of teaching I have never been involved with anything that made my students so proud of themselves and show such feelings of success. Stephen helped to show the other students and staff in the school that these students with special needs have unexpected talents, and they are
capable of doing things that no one ever thought they were capable of."
