Last month we were proud to officially dedicate Tyler’s Room. We welcomed about 20 relatives and friends along with Beth Israel staffers and together we took our first look at the room itself. Though it’s tucked into a corner of Beth Israel’s sixth floor, it doesn’t look like part of a hospital. It looks like a small but heavily decorated basement room full of musical instruments. There are guitars, a ukulele, congas, keyboard, stereo, and on a somewhat more technologically impressive note, a mini recording studio complete with digital turntables. You can download a song and alter it, record yourself playing and singing, and scratch and switch between two different songs. The whole setup looks like a ton of fun to play around with.
