Since we were getting ready for our first group event last week, I took the opportunity to film several of my students playing their pieces so they could watch themselves and use it as a tool for improvement. I really need to do this more often! I finally decided to create an official YouTube channel for Music Matters Blog and you can subscribe to my videos by visiting my YouTube page here. And if you have a YouTube channel for your music blog or studio, please let me know!
Naomi has cerebral palsy, so she doesn’t have fine motor skills in her left hand. This has not deterred her from becoming a very fine pianist, though. She is incredibly disciplined and perseveres until she learns her pieces with excellence! Here she plays The Clear Stream, Op. 100, No. 7 by Johann Burgmuller.
Joey thought this piece was the perfect fit for our mystery theme this year, so he decided to play it at last week’s Private Eye Workshop. This is a recording we did at his last lesson before the event. He is playing A Mysterious Moment by David Karp.
Isabella has a lot of natural musical talent and expresses it nicely in this performance of Whirling Leaves by Nancy and Randall Faber.
Caleb and I had fun playing this duet called Blink of an Eye by Janet Vogt.
