Today, March 8th, marks International Women's Day. How are you celebrating?! March is off to an interesting start. Did you remember to move your clocks forward to Daylight Saving Time? I hope you did. If you tuned in to CBTS (CMajor Before The Show) and CRS (the CMajor Radio Show) you know that we are concerned about music making and wellness. Among the shoutouts, I also mentioned that we would talk about ways to keep healthy during this global coronavirus scare. Be well.
We also mentioned that there are some books titles that we would like to share with you:
Life is Good The Book - How to Live With Purpose & Enjoy the Ride
Essential Dictionary of Music - Definitions Composers Theory Instrument & Vocal Ranges
Please let us know if you need any further information. We'd be happy to share what we have. Keep well, everyone! Hope to see you next weekend on the podcasts. We're aiming to talk about "playing with nails" and "nail playing". It's inspired by my students who insist on wearing long fingernails and not clipping them or clipping them and then installing temporary and/or permanent long nail tips. Sigh!--what's a piano teacher to do? Nothing...I love all of my students to pieces and I'll especially shout-out the ones who challenge their music making techniques and make it their own.
For a fun music exercise this week, try to read and learn more about your favorite women instrumentalists, singers and composers. I have a list. I won't share it at this time, but I love reading about women who began their piano concert careers in the early twentieth century. It's so inspiring to me. Be inspired. Keep well. See you soon. Take care.
Peace & Love,
