Playing with Passion

Check out our performance of Beethoven Symphony no. 5 “Finale” (arr. by Richard Meyer) from our final day of Summer Camp!

Throughout camp, we talked about Beethoven’s style, the character of this piece, and the historical significance. As Beethoven himself said: “to play a wrong note is insignificant, to play without passion is inexcusable”.

 

 

Creative Ability Development

On June 17-18, a group of Harmony Project teachers gathered for a two day intensive workshop on the “Creative Ability Development” (CAD) Method with Alice Kanack, all the way from Rochester, NY. CAD pedagogy develops creativity in students through musical improvisation. The sessions consisted of playing, discussion, and exploration. We are so excited to try out new techniques with our students! Many thanks to Alice for her time and generosity!
