I apologize for the lack of blog posts. I’ve been busy preparing for Artistry Camp and for next year’s repertoire lists for students. This year, the National Achievement Program/the Royal Conservatory Examinations is my guide post for music history. While trying answer all of the questions and come up with an over view of each era, I’ve discovered that I’ve forgotten more about music history than I currently remember. So the reviews and research is hopefully going to pay off. The amount of information that is simply not used in regular piano, voice and oboe lessons is staggering and kind of a shame. If more was incorporated would our students have a better understanding of their pieces?
It’s back to work for now. Hopefully, I’ll have a better post later this week.
