One of Maestro's featured acts, from the C-Family, are Maestro and Nola’s children and protégés, The C-notes, a musical band and vocal group. Zahara (13) on guitar/ukulele and viola, Nile (12) electric bass and cello (Zahara and Nile are 362 days apart, "Irish twins" Lol), Isis (11) drums, percussions, lead vocals, Kiki (9) electric guitar/ukulele, and Phoenix (7) piano and lead vocals.
In the tradition of family bands such as the Jackson 5, the Partridge Family, the Silvers, the Carpenters, the C-notes perform as a band and a vocal group, from songs by the Mills Brothers and the Andrews Sisters, to Jefferson Airplane, Sly & the Family Stone and the Hawkins Singers, as well as original compositions written by their mother and father. Although their parents aspire for them to enter into the sciences, they use music more as a tool, as a part of their well-rounded education. Music is a fun way to, teach mathematical relationships, develop critical thinking skills, teach the children to work as a group and independently. With all of that said, the C-notes are proving to be skilled musicians, vocalists and entertainers and their parents are overwhelmingly proud.
