    Listen to free live piano performances!
    Posted by Mary Whittington - September 10, 2009 - 10:56 AM

    I've been thinking lately about how beneficial it is to listen to live performances while learning an instrument. We in Bloomington have such a wonderful resource for this in the Jacobs School of Music, where nearly every day there are multiple events to choose from.

    I think that I'm going to start encouraging my students across to board to attend. Perhaps instead of doing written theory homework, I'll give them the option of going to a performance and filling out a question sheet to bring back with a copy of the program. The questions could have to do with music history, tonality, form... or for the younger students, drawing a picture to go along with the music!

    When I have this question sheet drafted, I'll post it up here for others to use.
