Suzuki and traditional Violin and Viola lessons for students of any age. This method is built on Dr.

The Suzuki Method is a format in which students (ages 3 and up), their care-givers, and the teachers can openly communicate with each other in order to provide a positive learning environment. Each student learns their instrument in a caring environment through listening, repetition, and a series of attainable goals.

Malcolm Arnold Fantasy for Horn, Opus 88 09/01/2020

From the performer Debra Sherrill-Ward
"When I was asked to play for the Summer Solo Series at the Historic Powder Magazine, my first suggestion was the Malcolm Arnold Fantasy for Horn since it is about Charleston Pirates. Well not really, Sir Malcolm Arnold did not write a specific story for the op 88 Fantasy, but many horn players tell a version of the story of The Pirate Swashbuckle. I believe the story originated with Jeff Nelsen from Canadian Brass. The story fits perfectly with the form of the solo. I love this fun work and have fond memories of working on this with Frøydis. Thank you for listening.
The Pirate Swashbuckle.
A pirate ship was sailing off the coast of Charleston. The crew is having a grand time singing, drinking and dancing. They party into the wee hours of morning. The pirates eventually fall asleep to the gentle rocking and occasional wave crashing against the side of the ship while they dream of buried treasures. Suddenly, they are jolted awake by the boom of a cannon from a pirate ship in the distance. The two ships slowly come together and a battle breaks out, with lots of commotion and swashbuckling. The Charleston crew is victorious and celebrates their newfound treasure with more dancing, drinking and singing as they return to the high seas."
