DESERT ISLAND RECORDINGS: IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN RECORDED MUSIC -

MUSIC CURRICULUM LINKS

I love music! It is a mystery how sound vibrations can create such beauty and energy and elicit joyous reactions from both humans and animals!

My trombone teacher had a little dog, who would instantly dance on its hind legs when a recording of Rachmaninov 3 piano concerto was played!

My neighbours dog would sing howling in tune every time I would practice the Paul Hindermith Sonata for Trombone!
