On Sunday May 26th, the orchestra of the Diamond Ranch High School (where I’ve been privileged to work as the strings coach for the past 5 years or so) will be debuting my three-Image work, “Courage Triptych”! They’ve been working so hard on this!
The performance will take place at the Fox Theater in Pomona — I have to get more details on time and tickets, etc! But, for now, enjoy this little sample that I snuck from the rehearsal this morning… I’m so proud of them!
In the middle of giving my VERY FIRST official Final Exam for the String Techniques class at TMC, involving both a playing exam and written portion!!
It’s so fascinating being on the "other end" of the academic experience at this level. I’m so proud of these guys!
I recently threw together this video to help out a friend with her beginning bow technique questions, and it turned out quite good, so I’m making it available for anyone else who might need some guidance!
I’m so thrilled and proud that eight of my private violin students will be performing in our Holiday studio recital, THIS SUNDAY! Each will perform one solo, as well as participate in a “resurrected studio tradition”… the group performance of a Renaissance Canon! We’ll even have a special presentation from a couple of our uber-creative girls, and Nico and I will get to play a little Amy Beach for the students, too.
Everyone is ready to go, and sounding beautiful! It will be such a fun event; I can’t wait!
