St. George has one tourist attraction that I just LOVE! Ever heard of Tuacahn? It's an outside amplitheater that is surrounded by the gorgeous red rocks. Each summer you can go see a couple different musicals and this year they have Grease and The Little Mermaid. We saw Grease (but we'll be going back for Little Mermaid and I can't wait!) and I loved it!! I had no clue what to expect because I've never even seen the movie! Crazy right? Haha :) One of the best parts of these musicals is the orchestra pit. My dad plays the guitar for Grease (and has played just about every year for Tuacahn's musicals!) and his talent never ceases to amaze me!
My dad absolutely loves the guitar and he has worked so hard to become such an accomplished musician. His band has opened for Kansas, Styx, Beach Boys, etc. Best of all...they played at my wedding :) and we had the best time dancing to their music!Now that we know how my old man ;) parties it up at night... let's talk about his day job! He teaches guitar classes at Dixie State College as well as individual lessons. Who watched NBC's The Voice? Dia Frampton and her sister Meg are former students of his (when Meg is visiting she still meets up with my dad for some lessons) and the list goes on.
My dad is so passionate about his career and I really admire that. I love my job because he taught me how important it is to love what you do. He is one of the best role models a girl could have, and anyone who meets Lisle Crowley will agree with me! :)
Now, you MUST do me a favor and check out the latest project my dad's been working on. He has started up a couple different websites where you can find online guitar lessons, musical arrangements, and other musical resources.
If you're interested in lessons or setting up a gig, this is an easy way to get connected!
And be sure to check out the e lessons tab! :)
He has arranged some LDS hymns specifically for the guitar here.
And some classical music.
Let me know what you think! :) And if you get the opportunity, definitely see a musical at Tuacahn! And while you're at it, take a husband who is happier to take cute pictures than mine is... deal? Haha!
