New Music Together® Semester!

The Music Together® semester at Evergreen Academy is off to a great start! We have three classes running: two at the Hamilton Location (Thursdays at 10:30 and Sundays at 9:30) as well as one at our new Timonium Location (Tuesdays at 10:30). The "Fiddles" collection truly is one of my favorites; I love the american folk and bluegrass influence as well as the great variation in tonalities. Many thanks to all of our fabulous registered families, I look forward to watching and hearing your kids make music this semester!

Guitar Group Classes Begin!

Today was the first meeting of my "Young Peoples Guitar Ensemble" for kids 10 and over. Wesley and Campbell did a phenomenal job working on "Maleguena Variations", and I couldn't be more pleased with their efforts today to learn the music! I am very excited to see how the rest of the semester develops. Plans were laid today to begin work on some traditional classical favorites as well as a Beatles set...stay tuned for upcoming gigs and video of these fabulous students.
