One of the things that I have been trying to encourage with our young pianists is composing songs. Elly, who is 9 years old, was given several blank measures of manuscript paper, a Halloween theme, and told to write her song in 4/4 timing. This is the result, her first song writing endeavor, Haunted House. Great job Elly! Looking forward to more of Elly and other students’ musical creations.
Larimer Music has been invited to present a Recital or Program once again this year for First Christian Church of Hessville in Hammond on Friday, December 2. The church had their holiday banquet in mid November last year, and we provided a program of oldies and modern music. This year, we will be providing a program of approximately 45 minutes with a blend of Christmas/Holiday music and contemporary music. The church will be selling tickets to their Holiday turkey dinner that will take place beforehand. All students and friends and family are invited to purchase tickets and attend the dinner as well as coming to hear our program (the program portion is free of charge).
The ticket price (for the optional dinner) and the exact time of our recital/program will be posted in the next couple of weeks. Mark your calendars and check back for more information!
