It is hard to believe that it has been seven months since Maestro crossed Rainbow Bridge. I decided that it would be cathartic to reflect upon my grief journey so far.
Family, friends and students are familiar with Maestro's singing talents. This summer, my little Lakeland Terrier is set to conquer the world: Maestro and I entered Canada's Stuck on BAND-AID(r) Brand Jingle Contest at Taste of Calgary.
Check out Maestro singing the BAND-AID(r) jingle on command and more impressively - stopping on command (a friend in the background did the choral gesture to stop). Feel free to share the link with family, friends and coworkers via email and all the social networking sites, like Twitter and Facebook. Be sure to come back to the video starting August 31 to vote for Maestro!

My marketing friend, Andrea Coutu, recommended a while back that I track visits to my website. There have been some interesting searches conducted which lead people to my site. Here are just a few of the more interesting or common searches done for Musings:
- Piano pedagogy certificate program
- Musical ear
- Piano Practice Excuses
- APTA Festival + Calgary
- RSI Iaido
- Iaido Calgary
- Creative Practicing
- How to Cheat on RCM Exams
- Benefits of Music
- Summer pedagogy programs
- Summer Piano Programs
Number 9 was a surprise. That particular blog had "rhythm cheat sheet" and a reference to my students taking an RCM examination. I know that students have tried time and time again to cheat on theory exams, employing similar techniques used for other school tests. However, cheating on a piano exam isn't heard of too often. There was an incident a couple of years back, in which three piano teachers and one RCM Examination Representative were suspended for obtaining and giving the actual sight reading and ear training exam questions to students in advance of their exams.
Here are some of the more colourful/common searches done for Musespeak(tm)'s site:
- Lakeland Terrier
- Music Background
- Writing Background
- Music images
- RCM Exams
- Music Lessons Calgary
- Voice Lessons Calgary
- Guitar Lessons Okotoks
- Music Theory
- Accompanying Policies
Who would have thought that Maestro would be searched for?
