Chanukah Medley

Currently, I have all of my students working on music for sharing. The students become better musicians when they play together.  Additionally, cooperative music making builds friendships.  I make an effort to have siblings play together. It creates family memories that last a lifetime.

I teach a pair of brothers for whom it has become more and more of a challenge to select holiday music.  Christmas piano duets are easy to find. Chanukah duets are more difficult. So in defense, this year I composed a Chanukah duet for them.

Wouldn’t you know it!  The older brother ended up with a football injury and one arm in a cast for weeks. So now we are working on a piece written for four hands at one piano, with three hands.  The cast came off last week.  As a tribute to their dedication, the piece is going to shine at the recital on Friday.  Enjoy listening to their second to last lesson before the recital, and the first lesson with all four hands!
