Check out these hardworking cellists!
So proud of these kids at Drew Charter school! They are working so hard in their first ever string quartet, and doing a great job. You can tell that they're sounding good by the goofy grin on my face...
We had our recital this weekend, and everyone did a great job! I was so proud of my students, who played with expression and carried themselves with maturity. We did a couple of pieces as a cello choir, which was very fun. If only we could play all together more!
This week I decided to go full Ms. Frizzle and make a lesson-themed costume for Halloween. I showed up to after school orchestra rehearsal dressed as the Dynamic Contrast, a new superhero saving students everywhere from a fate worse than death- a boring performance!
She has 5 powers that help her captivate her audience and induce a hypnotic state. She has extreme abilities that allow her to vary
- Her arm weight on the bow
- The amount of bow she uses
- How close to the bridge she plays
- Her bow speed
- How much bow hair she uses to play
The best thing about the Dynamic Contrast? Her powers aren't magical at all! You too can use your powers to vary your dynamics and give a much more exciting performance!
