Music for the Community

Welcome to our Music for the Community page! Since we can't take our music out to local nursing homes and libraries at the moment, we're inviting you in to enjoy it here instead. Each day you'll find a new student performance on this page, along with some info about the composer or instrument - and sometimes words too so you can sing along. 

If you're interested in a particular category, you can sort performances by student age, instrument, singalong music, composer and so on - click on the orange tags under the text. We hope you and your family will enjoy watching our students share their music! 

To have each week's videos and accompanying info sent to your inbox*, please subscribe via the orange button.

*Videos are delivered twice weekly; you can unsubscribe at any time, and we will never share or sell your info.

Day 33: I Want a Popsicle

Day 33: Violinist age 5 plays Twinkle Variation D, “I Want a Popsicle”

Another Suzuki variation today - this one introducing the student to triplet rhythms. Whether you learn this with the words “I-want-a/pop-si-cle/I-want-a/popsicle” or as some students prefer, “blue-ber-ry/straw-ber-ry/blue-ber-ry/straw-ber-ry”, coordinating the fingers and bow in these continuous running notes can be very confusing at first! But this student, who started in our very first class ever of Wayland Rec beginners, is very comfortable with the whole idea by the time of this performance and dispatches it with ease.
