Thought I'd share this beautiful live butterfly who visited my garden for all my little Musos. .. we've been singing about Caterpillars and butterflies in our May Mini Term and they all created the most beautiful wings with their wee fluttering fingers, flapping hands and swooping arms !! Enjoy this wee butterfly in all its glory x happy long weekend

Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg

Mozart lived to the age of 35 – and he spent 10 of those years on the road 🤩

Superstars!! Every single student is a superstar! Thank you all so much for joining us - and especially to grandparents who got to see their grandchildren perform. The video is processing at the moment and as soon as it’s ready I’ll send it to parents!

The countdown is on for the first ever #keyboardkapersvirtualrecital. Everything is set up and ready to go! Fingers crossed the technology will behave 😅.

This recital is a celebration of the students! They have worked very hard and have superstars 🌟 with the changeover to online lessons!

Belinda and little Saorla are a great team ☺️☺️

Pampering and self care for children #mindfulnessforkids #mindfulnessforchildren hair by #coconutoil mask, nails by mom! It’s that kinda day 🦋

[05/22/20]   End of the day. First time hosting #musicworkshops online - a steep learning curve. It was great for the students to virtually meet and they had great fun 😊. Now I have to typeset their wonderful #compositions

First online workshop done and I’m now getting ready for the next one! So impressed with how well the students took to our composition segment. I’m looking forward to typesetting their music and adding their own, special lyrics.

🐸🐸Sneak peak of what to expect on zoom and with our online interactive videos.... 🐸🐸

Taking the business online was out of my comfort zone. I thrive on face to face interactions. To say I'm sick of my own company and looking (and listening) to my pre-recorded face is an understatement. BUT I did it for all my families who wanted a bit of a routine back!

Now I can reach soooooo many more people, it's very exciting. Last week I had families in London & Cape Town. This week bookings came in from France!! So no matter where in the world you are if youd like to join us then please do!!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone and hearing all of the wonderful music that has been practised over the Easter break 🥳

Mini Musos

Absolutely delighted. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s session 🥳🥳🥳🥳

I wrote another blog on my website about Zoom... for anyone who needs to know how to install it, the safety measures applied to entering one of our virtual classes and a basic home utensils music kit to have prepared before joining us x

When I began teaching (almost 20
years ago) I quickly figured out that everyone learns and processes concepts in their own way and it was my job to find the way in. If one way doesn’t work well, let’s find another way!

I’m a #visuallearner and I *know* that it’s very important to take #musicconcepts out of the books, off of the #pianobench and #move, make it #visual, #tactile, a sensory experience, etc. I also know that when you can link a concept to something a student is interested in they will understand it much faster.

Then we went #online so I had to adapt pretty fast 😅. I’m working on a series of online #interactivemusicgames for all of my students. It’s a great idea but I think I have Repetitive Strain Injury 😅🤣🤣🤣

#tellingtime #musicclock

I’m literally in my element 😂😂. My very own #interactivemusicactivities. These are perfect for #online lessons.

This is one of the loveliest activities from Mini Musos - tune in and do it at home with little ones. It’s got everything: movement, stillness, anticipation, singing and most importantly of all fun 🐣🐰🥳. Fantastic as usual Karen Mini Musos

A lovely movement song , fun for this time of year, Easter Weekend!!

This simple yet fun song encompasses so many aspects of our little ones learning and development tapping into:
🐰Creative imagination, pretending to be little bunnies
🐰Listening skills, waiting for that moment to jump up!
🐰Gross Motor Moves as we Hop, Run, Wiggle.
🐰Language development, through repetition of new words
🐰Memory Activation, can we remember at the end the 3 actions we did throughout the song?
🐰 Musicality , subconsciously understanding dynamics , when to play loud and soft, tempo matched with their motor movement : moving slower for hopping and faster for wiggling.

You can adapt this for babies and bounce them on your knee, helping them to move on various ways, encouraging them to sit still and listen... you'll be surprised how the take it all in after a few goes!!!

Would you have thought there were so many elements in this song for your little ones development?

Happy Easter!!

One of the messages I’ve received lately from a parent ☺️

This is why I do it - the reason students progress so well is because they enjoy it. I want to meet them at *their* level.

That’s what LOVE #teaching #music.

Not just #piano but all that goes along with it.

It always helps to have the #kindestparents onboard 🙏☺️
