2015 Recital Wrap

The kids sang so wonderfully and showed their proud parents and grandparents some of what they've learned! Each 1st year class got to play a song on the bells, and 2nd year class, a couple on the keyboards. They practiced so hard over the couple of weeks leading up to it and it really showed! They all should be feeling a sense of pride but I'm sure they also feel quite loved. They were able to look out at the audience and see their family's support and smiles. I had a great time at the recital with these kids and their families! What a great way to end a fun and wonderful year!! ‪#‎lpmrecital‬ ‪#‎letsplaymusic‬

Then the Sound Beginnings students had their recital and instrument day a week later and had such a great time showing off and playing music their families!

My favorite Baby Elephants performing their dance to Henry Mancini

The 3rd year recital is one of the top highlights of my year every year. It was such a pleasure to sit in the audience with the families of our fine young musicians and enjoy their original and unique compositions. This year we had the pleasure of hearing Vampire Waltz, Building Legos, Magic Piano, Fairies, and Magic Soccer Ball. We started the recital with a true ensemble piece that they did such a great job performing. An adaptation from Dvoraks' New World Symphony. They played the rhythms just right, moved their hands to just the right positions, some sang along as we played, but most tricky of all, they stayed together! Proud teacher moment! I can only take a fraction of the credit really. Credit goes to the amazing LPM program and @shellesolfeg, the kids' hard work, and mostly the amazing parents!! Then we headed into their beautiful compositions and the pride and joy in their faces was priceless. We ended the recital with a fun performance of our cool jazzy song, Find the Root. I loved every minute of it!! Love you guys and I'm already missing you bunches!‪#‎lpmrecital‬ ‪#‎orangeroots‬ ‪#‎letsplaymusic‬

Fun and Learning in the 2015 1st Year LPM classes!

Experiencing subdividing music with our whole bodies as we listen to the sounds of the jungle!

Look at those nice round mouths! We're doing a little vocal training with the 'ooh' sound as we rock these fluffy babies to the steady beat of this minor lullaby. Each song in Let's Play Music teaches multiple concepts! Aren't they so sweet? Love that Bryton is rocking his baby snake to sleep :)

Classical music training with puppet shows! Each theme in the piece gets a character and here the girls are expressing the minor sounds of the Genie. Love!
