Music teacher Aaron O'Keefe has posted studio footage of some of his students performing a cover of TOOL's '46 & 2':
O'Keefe: "I couldn't be more proud of the students on this cover of '46 & 2' by Tool. They all worked to the best of their ability and created a unique interpretation of the song by adding piano, claves, djembe and bongos. Andy Hubbard, a 10 year old guitarist, then recorded the credit sequence, 'Light's Theme' from the Japanese anime Death Note."
In 2011 Aaron O'Keefe took 13 of his students to perform and record covers of 'The End Of Heartache' and 'My Curse', two songs by the grammy-nominated Metalcore band KILLSWITCH ENGAGE. The videos, available on youtube, have since been viewed by audiences around the world including the actual band members themselves. They were so impressed with the kids' performance that they contacted Mr. O'Keefe directly to inquire on how they can send some 'gifts' for these budding musicians. They appear in this photograph with some of the merchandise provided by Killswitch Engage - 6 autographed posters, 8 pairs of gloves, 9 t-shirts, 9 hats, 3 keychains, 4 patches, 1 hoodie, 2 bookbags and 3 belts.
