Music Art

When students learn a new music symbol, I have them draw a picture using it in some way.  This one was really creative.  The symbol was a fermata.  Can you see it in the eyes and mouth?
Great job, Eliza!

Here's some things you may not know about Isac.

What do you like to do for fun?  Isac likes to play soccer at the Y.  He really like playing offence and making a score.

What's the best part of piano lessons?  M&M's at the end! 

What's the worst part of piano lessons? Owning up to not practicing something assigned.

What music are you listening to that's not piano lesson related"?  Dubstep, it's a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England in the 1990s. Here's an example of a Matthew Parker's Meet Your Maker.  Sounds cool!

So there it is, you now know a little bit about Isac and learned about a new genre of music.
