Today is the first day of November, and even though it is the fall season, we are already hearing Christmas music in the studio! Our students are choosing what holiday music they would like to be playing - whether Christmas carols, popular Christmas favorites, or music from the Nutcracker Suite. There will be several options for performance in the month of December, so please stay tuned for sign ups and more information to come!
Coming up next week are our Impressionist Enrichment Sessions. Some of the main composers from this short time period are Debussy, Ravel, and Satie. We will be learning much about exploring the blurred tones created in a new style by these composers as they do very different things with the pedal - and all as it relates to the painted art of the era. The students are all playing pieces which contain some of these elements, as much of the music written by these composers is at a more difficult level. We are looking forward to being together in our groups, hearing the music of the students, and doing some unique activities!
Here you will find the latest updates and announcements from the Studio Connection.
