This is a completely personal post by me. Wayne Siligo has been the music teacher at the California School for the Blind (CSB) for almost forty years. I have been working there for almost 22 years. Wayne was one of the first people to befriend me when I started there and we have remained good friends since then. Wayne is an amazing person. He is a very talented musician who can play 23 instruments, he arranges and writes music, he is a great businessman and one of the best music teachers around. Oh, I forgot that Wayne is totally blind. He started to lose his vision when he was a child and by the time he was an adult he was totally blind.
Anyway, Wayne wrote an inspirational book about his years of teaching blind students how to play different instruments and had a book launch party at the Fremont library where he and the Wayward Trio (Wayne, David and Marcus (who was a student of mine)) played music and Wayne talked about the book:
