I stumbled upon this today and had to share it. First, watch these videos and I'll discuss my ideas below!
In Dreams: Lord of the Rings
Bach 3 Part Invention No. 10
One aspect that has been lacking in my students is the ability to play with others. This is largely due to the fact that they take private lessons so they don't often get the opportunity to play with others. This year I am excited to have some of my drum students, guitar students, and (hopefully) bass guitar students play together in bands for the recital. They will be performing a range of songs from Switchfoot to Kutless to Los Lonely Boys. I think it will be a great addition and a fantastic opportunity for students to experience playing together.
But there are many different facets to guitar playing! One that (for some reason) I had never really considered was guitar ensembles. As you can see from the videos, there is a wide range of music (from classical to pop) that can be covered and it is definitely more exciting than playing alone! I am still gathering material, but I am looking forward to starting to work with a few students this week and hope to have something worked out for the recital in May. If this sounds like something you or your child may be interested in, please let me know!
I leave you with one final video. Enjoy!
