Excited About My New Accompaniment Gig

Playing ensemble music reminds me of the Tamil Indians. You create something different each time you play with a different group or a different song. I'm looking forward to my newest accompanying project. Four really fun tunes.

One of these days I will get to musing on something regarding this teaching year. Today isn't one of them.
In the meantime, please check out these fantastic posts by my colleagues:

The Collaborative Piano Blog

The blog's tagline reads, "The piano in ensemble. The piano in real life."

Piano study can be pretty solitary, unless your schedule (or your family's schedule) allows you to do some collaborative work. Having done accompanying and duets, I have to say that collaborative work makes music more enjoyable.

And now, here's The Collaborative Piano Blog, by a fellow RCM alumni and fellow teacher that covers this topic. There are other useful articles too, including one on memorization.

Happy exploring!
