What is better than having instant access to the music that you want to play? I love the accessibility of the digital download sites. You have instant downloads – and – you can load it on your tablet to use during lessons. This is great for sight reading exercises, but also when trying to find new repertoire for a student who just doesn’t know what they want to study! This is a link to one of the sites that I use. They have a lot of “freebie” things and you can earn points towards future purchases. It’s a win win music site!
Tonight’s concert was spectacular!! All students performed so very well. I am so proud to have helped to develop such great musical talent!
