SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. -- Delfeayo Marsalis stood before Jefferson High School's first-period jazz ensemble and told the 25 young musicians to turn their sheet music around, that they were going to learn by listening, not reading. He got his point across by playing "Happy Birthday" on his trombone, then asked if any of them learned it by reading the music. Not one hand went up. "It's good to read music, but you learned this by listening to it, not by reading it," he said.

Patriotic tunes fill the television and radio airwaves in commercials and July Fourth concert specials, and school and community bands dust off their sheet music for people who crave it. Gary Glessner, 38, of Greencastle admits he's one who can't get enough. "God Bless America" is his favorite.

A madman has moved into our house! His name -" The young man in early 19th-century garb paused "- is Ludwig van Beethoven. " Behind him, the Maryland Symphony Orchestra punctuated the declaration, launching into Beethoven's Fifth Symphony with a thunderous "Duh-duh-duh-DUM.

 For many 21st-century Americans, mention the banjo and the image that often comes to mind is a white man in overalls playing bluegrass or a similar style of music. But George Wunderlich, executive director at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, said that image isn't an accurate depiction of the original instrument. Wunderlich, who is also a banjo aficionado, said the style of banjo music from the Civil-War era will ring through the grounds of the Pry House Field Hospital on Antietam National Battlefield, from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 23, during a banjo concert.

Few and far between are the high-schoolers who can make an entire room of teenagers go silent with awe, armed only with their voice and an electric keyboard. But Dana Sutton, a soft-spoken, raven-haired 15-year-old from Sharpsburg, is proof they do exist. When she came to The Herald-Mail to play for Pulse writers, we were amazed by her skill, both vocally and on the keyboard - and were eager to learn how she got where she is today. Dana says she began playing piano about seven years back, taking lessons on and off, and had been in a choir for five years.

Since moving to Homewood Retirement Center in Williamsport a year ago, Ethel has made it her practice to slip down to a recreation room in her Hilltop building to play the piano for her own pleasure. She is no stranger to performing. Ethel said that in the 1930s, she played sheet music in a music store window, taking requests from customers who wanted to hear what the songs sounded like.
