Day 78: CelloMind: Natural Harmonics Vibrato • Sometimes after even just a day off, no matter what the reason, you start playing again and feel like everything sounds terrible. That’s totally natural. One of the ways I fight that is spending a lot of time on basics like this. You can’t really “sound bad” on this kind of exercise and it’s super helpful. Thanks for watching! • #100daysofpractice#cello#violin#music#musician#cellist#violinist#musically#piano

Projeto Fé e Arte está de volta! Divulgue e venha!
The Metal Saxaphone Guy
A Serenade to Strings
One lays and listens
The other stands and creates
Tunes of great melody
Soulful, with a profound depth
Attentively listening, wondering
What is this, says the violin,
That pulls my heart strings so?
They say a saxaphone is reminiscent
Of decades past
Yet it lay, passive, mesmerized,
At the metal man
the out of state series
working on phrasing and dynamics so that this whole page isn’t just plain old quarter notes, and it’s a lot harder than I thought... 😂
also first person to guess why I have cling wrap on my arm wins ... something. comment your suspicion! ⤵︎
♪ Praeludium & Allegro
Day 77/365 ••• sometimes we need a reminder — “What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer
Oh what peace we often forfeit of what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer
Have we trials and temptations is there trouble anywhere
If we have don't be discouraged take it to the Lord in prayer”

For today's #Mondaymotivation I want to encourage you to think outside the box, meaning, look past the traditional limits of "classical music" and see what other art forms can inspire you. It can be a scary thought because we are all trained the same way, (assuming you'll be a professional classical musician) and since that's all we know we tend to be critical of anything outside that box. But even in the straight laced art form we think we know, our "classic" composers were trailblazers themselves. Early composers who dared to use a tri-tone, female and minority composers, audiences were mortified and protested the first performances of the Rite of Spring, Dvorak's use of folk music in his compositions, Berlioz wrote an entire opium induced symphony about a beheading ( #dontdodrugs ), Cage's 4.33, all the composers who invented musical forms, and all the composers and performers today crossing barriers. It's easy to think that everything has already been done and discovered. But history shows us that's not the case at all. What is normal to us now was once the work of renegades, radicals and heretics. So go get inspired and maybe someday music students will be reading about you in their music history class. What's you favorite heretic composer story? I recently read that Mozart had to work with a soprano he didn't like and knew she had a tendency to throw her head back when singing high notes and forward on low ones so he intentionally composed a piece that would make her head bob like a chicken when she sang it! 🐔
