I think it's high time I posted an update!! It's been an extremely busy year, so I thought I'd choose one thing to highlight, (and hopefully post more frequently moving forward).
Every summer, I work with my students on the one thing that we never get enough time for during the school year - composing! Last year, we learned about scoring movies. Each student chose a 1-2 minute scene from a movie, we turned off the sound, and they had to write a piano solo to accompany the scene. It was incredibly fun - I've posted a video below for you to watch or skim through if you like. At the very beginning are my very very little students, (we're talking 3-5 year-olds here) moving all the way up to high school and adult ages near the end of the video.
Also a HUGE thanks to my amazing husband who helped me edit this together and even added some graphics - you're the best honey!
I hope you enjoy!
