Have you ever wanted to give your kids a musical education that is different than the way we were taught as kids?
Have you ever just wanted to explore the fun of music making and play your favorite songs without all the stress and high standards of classical music?
What about all the wonderful music that we listen to and enjoy, don't you want to just have fun with what you love?
That is what my students at Living Music got to experience.
Saturday, I was blessed with the pleasure of hosting a Spring Outdoor Music Festival for my students.
I have 4 Levels of Music Lessons for each stage of their learning process:
To begin the show, Colorful Bones rocked out the first song featuring Bella on flute, covering Paul McCartney’s song Let ‘Em In.
I re-wrote the lyrics to include my students names...
I just want to continue to encourage you to continue to pour creativity and arts into your children. I am amazed at the rewards that continue to happen now that my children are growing up.
I want to share one of the best days of my life.
My biggest dream came true~ playing in a family band, just this past Saturday.
All the years of raising my kids and teaching music lessons, I find myself standing beside my husband, 17-year old daughter, Bella, and my brother and we are performing for all her friends and our family.
It is so fun to dream and then watch the dream unfold in front of your eyes.
Bella played her flute, played her bass guitar, her electric guitar and she sang with us.
We have been practicing our songs for the past year every Friday night at my brother's house, and we finally performed for everyone in his backyard on this beautiful March day for Bella's 17th birthday.
If you are a student of mine, or you are enrolled in any of my flute or piano online...
Do you enjoy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day like we do?
I have so much to tell you!!! And I have 2 gifts for you! It’s a St. Patrick’s Day song, and a Monthly Practice Plan. There is even a simple recipe, too!
We have enjoyed St. Patrick’s Day ever since our first son was born on March 16, 2001.
Turning 21, is quite a milestone, so I asked him if he wanted to go to an Irish Pub for his birthday, he said that would be awful!
Instead of going to a bar, he asked us all to go to Pine Mountain and go hiking with him. I guess all those daily walks during our homeschool days paid off, even in the cold, icy, and wet days.
When my kids were little, we always celebrated by wearing green, hunting for 4-leafed clovers, and making a festive snack.
Here is Bella when she was in 3rd grade.
Wanna do this with your family? Just take a piece of bread, spread some peanut butter on it, then take a banana and cut 4 coin...
I love having you here! Thank you for being apart of my musical journey! I love all of you, my friends and family! And this is a great time to send you all
My sister, Jenny and I love Valentine's Day for this very reason!!
She loves it so much that she just name her new baby, Valen. He is a precious baby boy. She really wanted to name him Valentine, but she couldn't talk her husband into it! But I think Valen is a great name.
I have a free song for you, with the chord and lyric chart, called I Love You So.
My cousin, Jamey and I wrote it together. It is a cute song to sing with your kids around this time of year.
He has a son that is 5 years old, named Oden and I am teaching him music lessons each week. I sing this to him all the time. It's his song, because....
This song was written 6 years ago, before Oden was born (I am pretty sure it was about Oden's mama).
I played the piano part for...
