Parents are often surprised when we invite their very new beginner to play in an upcoming recital! But if the memory of your own childhood recitals makes your palms sweat - think again: our recitals are very supportive and festive events, where even students who’ve had only a few weeks of lessons can share pieces using just one or two notes, and find themselves enthusaistically celebrated for doing so.
This jazzy piece from Joanne Martin’s “Magic Carpet” album is a favorite of our violin beginners, as all you need to play it is two open strings, A and E. In spite of that it’s a fun recital piece, and a great way to dip your toe into playing for an audience. Experiences like this get our students feeling comfortable right from the start with the idea of sharing their music with others - as you can see throughout this Music for the Community series.
This easy piano piece from the Suzuki Piano Program is based on a German folk song, but we gave it English words to help students learn it.
Cuckoo, cuckoo sings from the forest.Cuckoo, cuckoo sings from the tree.
Let us be singing, let us be dancing,Cuckoo, cuckoo, springtime is here!
Cuckoo, Cuckoo, high in the treetops,Cuckoo, Cuckoo, sing me a song.
Sing in the morning, sing in the evening.Cuckoo, Cuckoo, I’ll sing along!
