Music

Part of a Collection

A magical weekend
Of music
friendship
challenges
and laughter
Always learning

Add a recorder coach
Italian music
We played our way
Through three centuries
Exploring different styles

Don't just play
the notes on the page
How to add grace
We're learning to improvise
In the spaces
Learning the style of the time

Like mastering a new language
We explore the nuances
The flourishes
The accents
Not just notes
But a way of speaking


****************************

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music

-Aldous Huxley

Learning to Improvise

  2. It must be a great performance of different style through three centuries!
