Alicia Plays My Son John

My Son John is a lovely English nursery rhyme, first published in 1797. This version in the Bastien Primer book showcases the use of quavers and concentrates on the melodic interval of a 5th.

Well done Alicia!

Performance Video: Mia sings Lavender’s Blue

Have a look at this lovely end of year performance video from Mia.

Lavender’s Blue is a sweet English folk song that recently featured in the Cinderella movie. I got this piano arrangement from Dana’s website Music For Music Teachers.

Mia has been learning with me for six months and has done some great work on extending her range, discovering her diaphragm, and projecting her voice. Notice the long phrases with the sustained note at the end – you need very good breath control to sing this piece properly. Well done Mia!
