Tuneful Tuesday Week 61: Preschool Piano Songs

Tuneful Tuesday Week 61: WunderKeys Preschool Piano Songs

This Sunday is my annual Bloom Studio Recital where I get to sing along with my little preschool students as they show off their finger strength and dexterity….. and awesome dance moves. Here’s a preview of the silly songs we are going to perform together. ❤️

Fitness Friday Week 36: Utkatasana/Chair Pose

Chair Pose is a great position to sing in so as to build vocal strength. I use this with my students all the time when they are disconnected from their lower body while singing. To begin, start with your feet hip distance apart and bend your knees keeping strength through your inner thighs. Keep your weight in your heels rather than in your toes. See how low you can go while still keeping a straight spine and a strong lift of your rib cage.

Tuneful Tuesday Week 60: True Colors

Tuneful Tuesday Week 60: True Colors

I wore my fun rainbow skirt to the studio today and one of my students said “you remind me of that song ‘True Colors.’ You know…..’you’re beautiful like a rainbow.’”

So, I promised that student I’d sightread “True Colors” for my next Tuneful Tuesday. 🌈

Tuneful Tuesday Week 59: Taylor, The Latte Boy

Tuneful Tuesday Week 59: Taylor, The Latte Boy

This is one of those pieces that reminds you that classical singers (and composers) can still have a sense of humor.

My fiancé Brighton better watch out because I think I’m falling for Taylor, the latte boy. 😉

Tuneful Tuesday Week 57: The Golden Afternoon

Tuneful Tuesday Week 57: The Golden Afternoon

It’s Mother’s Day week at my mom’s flower shop. That means I’m dusting off my apron and helping out designing during my “off hours.” We get a little ridiculous during those long hours filled with heavy pollen counts…. thus, I give you, the Singing Snapdragon. 🤣
