Building community through music

I held a Holiday Party/Music Salon and Sing-along today for my students of Park Slope Music Lessons.  It was a great festive event that allowed for some of my students to perform for each other and get over their stage fright in an venue other than the recitals.

One of my student’s hosted in their lovely beautiful townhouse and we all brought treats and drinks to share.  What was really nice is that so many times, as a private music student, you don’t get to meet the other students and families in this community except for at the recitals.  By having this salon, we demonstrated how music can be a social and fun way of community, friendship and sharing.

Some of the kids bonded instantly!

I wanted to share here as well as you can see all of the kids who performed from 4 to 9 years old all learned via the Musicolor Method™ and many are well into reading traditional notation.

Here’s some photos and a video from today.

Notice how the boys and girls gravitated to each other!
