Making Music "Family Style"

Grace and her mom, Laura are practicing their duet "Angels We Have Heard on High"

My Christmas concert is coming up and my students are hard at work preparing their pieces. This year, I decided it was time for a change-up. I sent out the notice that students were to recruit a family member to participate in their performance at the concert. No one has to be a musician, the offer was open to even the worst of stick or triangle players (no offence to professional triangle players...). Several families rose to the challenge and are preparing piano duets, instrumental solos, jingle bell accompaniments, chimes, and even egg shaker accompaniments!

Twin sisters, Emily and Sarah are practicing a violin/piano accompaniment version of "Jingle Bells".

This is going to be a great concert!
