During our faculty professional development days, I was approaching an afternoon session being held in the theatre, when I heard Crazy Train booming loudly in the Concert Hall. I thought it was a recording and it was, with one exception: playing the lead guitar part (and shredding it like a pro) was one of our new Grade 9 International students, Qili (Jason) Hu, from Taiwan. He absolutely nailed every chord and riff exactly like the original recording. I asked Jason to give you his comments, which follow, and I ask you to watch a clip of Jason playing with an accompaniment track and witness his talent and enthusiasm for Heavy Metal music.
"My name is Jason Hu. I have been learning electric guitar for six years, and I have the super biggest dream to create the most famous heavy metal band in the world! When I was young, I heard a music band, named Pantera. There was a super crazy guitar player named Dimebag Darrell, and their music is super cool and crazy! So, because I have my dream, I started to learn guitar!!! My motto is 'Never give up!’
