Pic ID: Acrylic painting in all pastel colors, of a woman sleeping by a tree, with a crescent moon above and a stream of colors and music notes coming down from the moon, then wrapping around a tree which then wraps around the woman sleeping. When I was 9 years old I decided that I wanted to start drawing faces. I had a regular number 2 pencil and some printer paper. I would look up faces in books and try my best to draw an accurate picture of what I saw. I came from a family of artists, my Grandma was a painter and my Grandpa drew faces. I always saw their art around the house or at my Aunt a ..read more

Description: Dressing room at Carnegie Hall with a Piano and a mirror with a Concert Dress In the news when you see a story about a Concert Pianist it usually starts off by talking about how the pianist started lessons at the age of 5, had a grand piano by the age of 8 and was performing Concertos at the age of 10. The pianist came from a life where they were able to be afforded those opportunities and had high grades in school as well as multiple college scholarship opportunities. These stories are inspirational, but they can also lead people to believe that you have to be born into a certain ..read more

I didn’t need people to become my best friend, but I wanted to feel a part of things. Jennifer Msumba 30th annual Florida Film Festival sign at the Enzian theater in Orlando, Florida Let’s face it, we can’t spend our whole lives hiding. I mean, technically maybe we could, but it wouldn’t be much of a life. And if you aspire to be a professional artist- whether that be a musician, filmmaker, writer, designer etc, eventually you are going to have to get out there and meet people. Standing in front of the Enzian theater while actor John Amos is being interviewed This week I had both ups and down ..read more

Pic ID: Text reads “Celebrating 10 years!” The TMA logo is in the center, which is a negative space image in white and purple, meant to resemble a flapping hand and a musical note. Some people also see the flapping hand as reminiscent of a kokopelli. The Musical Autist is exactly 10 years old today. At least the domain name and the start of the blog. We didn’t get our 501c3 nonprofit status until 2014, whew that took some work. When I launched the website exactly 10 years ago today, I had no idea this thing would turn into a full fledged nonprofit organization. You can read the 4/1/2011 post h ..read more

Pic ID: a young white male with brown hair, winking with a kind of half smile and looking at the camera. His hand is closest to the camera lens, with his index and middle fingers creating a partial frame around his face, which gives the effect that he is peering through at you behind his hand. My name is Mitchell Matthews, and I’m an autistic singer-songwriter from St. Louis, MO, currently based in Springfield, MO! Two years ago, in August of 2019, I read about Jair Bolsonaro, the incumbent president of Brazil, facilitating the intentional deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, which would di ..read more
