Winter Recital, December 10, 2011

The Little Musicians had two wonderful recitals this past Saturday.  They sang three Christmas songs as a large group.  Then some students played their piano pieces while other students sang the songs they had been working on in voice class.  I am so proud of all of them.  They worked hard, practiced hard and performed spectacularly!  Here are three short videos of the 2pm recital singing Christmas songs.

How to Get a Good Beginner's Bow Position

I teach a lot of young beginner violin students.  I'm talking 3, 4, and 5 years old!

Parents need to help these little ones hold their bows correctly when they practice at home.  This video shows beginning violin students how to make a bow position. 

Make sure at the end to have a bent thumb and a curved pinky! 

Remember to have fun!
