SB East studio would like to put the spotlight on our volunteer, Josh. Josh gave some pretty fun and educational piano workshops this past week and we are truly impressed and thankful.
Josh put together a group of four members to learn the basic fundamentals of piano and learn the melody for “Mary Had A Little Lamb.” He did a great job encouraging the kids to be polite and respectful towards each other. The kids were fantastic, they took turns, were patient, and were very supportive of each other during the whole process. After the first 20 minutes, the kids memorized the pitches on the piano and of the notes they were playing for the melody. Their determination to play to melody correctly grew as they began to feel the music and develop a better understanding of the language of music. It was very nice to see how Josh challenged our youth in a fun and productive way. By the end of the workshop, the kids told Josh they were going to come back to practice the song until they got it right. That’s the sort of enthusiasm we like to see from our members and we would like to thank Josh for continuing to work with out youth and inspiring them to express themselves through music.
