We hope your Christmas was extra special this year! We’re winding down by dissecting what makes a Christmas song sound, for lack of a better term, “so Christmassy”?
Here’s a video for all you music geeks (and/or Mariah Carey fans). It’s fascinating.
We put together a list of songs for the holiday season. Here’s what the staff here at the school are listening to this time of year:
“Ability to learn is not fixed, it can change with effort” – Angela Duckworth
After teaching music for a lengthy period of time we’ve had many preconceived notions fall apart over the years. One of them is the importance of innate ability.
Talent and intelligence are valuable but not as important as we’ve assumed. What is becoming evident is that passion and perseverance are far more valuable in a quest to conquer a long term goal.
Angela Duckworth explains in the linked talk how very import the concept of “Grit” is not just in music but all worthy goals.
This Friday we’re proud to sponsor along with Gabriel’s Fountain “Back to School Movie Night”!
We’ll be showing:
Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
When: 9/9 @ 7:30
Where: Out back on the lawn. 1946 Washington Valley Rd.
Have a listen to vocal students Margot and Anushka performing 2 songs from our Vocal Workshop. Awesome job girls!
In our student spotlight is Jordan. This is the first song that Jordan learned and memorized on the Ukulele. Have a listen and enjoy!
Way to go Jordan! It sounds awesome!!
