Imagine the fulfillment that comes from music-making with your own skills!
Imagine the joy of making music with others and sharing it with your family and friends!
I saw lots of smiling faces last Friday, on our "Bach to the Beatles" Zoom Festival! Keira and Trinity made awesome Bach and Beatles videos for us, and Matthew recorded the bass of the Bach Bourree so everyone could take turns playing along with him. We shared all we learned about "The Sound of Music" with some great Bach videos, and then heard lots of great sounds of classic Beatles and classic Frank Sinatra, played by the students. Thank you all for your work to make our Zoom celebration memorable!
We'll celebrate another giant of music this fall as we mark Beethoven's 250th birthday! We'll have another Zoom celebration, and we'll hope to get to share it with some care homes!
In the meantime, we have some new students joining our musical adventures! Anna and Christian Littlejohn will begin with us, and Christian has already promised he'll help me with my technical difficulties! Kaylee Achilles, Rose Smith, and Mei-Lin Luu will join us, too, so they will make a great, happy first-year class!
I know everyone is anxious about what our school-year will be like, but I hope the one thing that can stay the same is the joy we find in our music! Just be sure to remember that, on our musical journey, there's only one sure way to "get there!"
Yours for the joy of music study!
