Thanks Synthtopia!

7 Mar

The Chromawheel project got a nice writeup in Synthtopia. Chromawheel Music Compass allows students to play with music theory in a unique, tactile way, and to see how music works.

Oh Shenandoah Arrangement

30 Jan

I made an arrangement for my middle school string orchestra of one of my favorite folk songs of all time, Oh Shenandoah.  It’s from around the time of the American Civil War, and the lyrics are beautiful.  I recorded a demo of the recording for cello quartet in case the students wanted to hear it.  The photo is from Lake Onalaska, about 5 hours north of Chicago in Wisconsin.
