Dylan scheduled her four summer lessons all in one week, so we laid out a few projects she could accomplish in four days. One of the pieces Dylan asked to learn was “Yellow Submarine.” Not only did she learn the piece, she created her own backing track using the iReal Pro iOS app.
Kate plays much harder music than this, but she was doing me a favor by being the first student to learn and play this pedagogical piece I composed recently. Thanks, Kate!
One of our recitals the past two years has been a program we called Blues Bash. Students enjoyed performing with a rhythm band.
