We had studio class yesterday! These kids have made so much progress since our winter recital. They are learning to be good performers and audience members.

PIANO INSPIRATION!
Art Tatum!  They used to say “God is in the house,” when Art Tatum showed up to play.  Listen to virtually any clip you can find and you’ll hear why.  But aside from all the fast scales and arpeggios, there’s also harmonic language in Tatum’s playing that’s way ahead of it’s time. -

PIANO INSPIRATION!
Arthur Rubinstein was a most inspirational classical pianist!  Check out the “Highlights from Rubinstein at Carnegie Hall” record.  Wonderful playing.  And as you can see, he knew how to keep it fun and interesting! -

For our next Classics for Kids concert we're thrilled to be teaming up with the students and faculty of 
Lyra Music Festival and Workshop! @lyramusicinc 
This is a concert that's by kids and for kids. 
The Lyra Music Festival and Workshop is a 3-week, 
conservatory-style classical music program held at Smith College in Northampton, MA.

It is an audition-based program, open to advanced and intermediate violinists, 
violists, cellists and pianists ages 9-18. 
For our program Lyra brings some of their brightest
students to perform
Saint-Saen's classic "Carnival of the Animals".
The animals come alive in this rendition for Piano Four-Hands and Piano-Cello Duo.

Additional works on the program are Liszt's Un sospiro from Three Concert Etudes and Henry Eccles' Cello Sonata in g minor.

Back by popular demand, the program will be narrated 
by @gsamardge of @compassartsny

Tickets are FREE for children and $10/adult.

Reserve tickets online at
HowlandMusic.org (link in bio)

#tbt Last October  @fortepianostudio students attended a Classics for Kids concert presented by @howlandchambermusiccircle. The students not only heard the internationally acclaimed pianist Michael Brown in concert, but also had the opportunity to meet and greet him!  Can’t wait for more #classicsforkids concerts! .
