When Neil Moore, Simply Music’s founder, saw the videos I’d made of a number of my early students after they completed the first level of the Simply Music Foundation program, he called to tell me how impressed he was. I was asked to provide the original video recordings so that Simply Music could consider including some of the footage as part of their own official YouTube presence.
Just tonight, I got a Google Alert letting me know about a YouTube video that mentioned me. It turned out to be from that footage that Simply Music had asked for. The video is of Ethan, who had been a piano student of mine for a time back when I taught traditional lessons and then returned when I started teaching Simply Music lessons. He’s been thriving ever since and is just now starting Foundation 4. Not only was his Foundation 1 performance put on Neil Moore’s YouTube channel — it is the very first video posted there!
I feel great as a teacher having helped produce results that Neil was so impressed with, and I feel really proud of Ethan for doing such good work that Neil would premier his YouTube channel with Ethan’s performances. Enjoy!
I hope other students of mine will let me know about any videos online of them performing anything from their lessons with me, so that I can share those videos here as well!
A few weeks after it was posted on Neil’s YouTube channel, the video was taken down — and moved to the official Simply Music channel, along with a video from another student of mine! See this newer post to see those and some other videos of my students: http://potluckcreativearts.com/2010/11/videos-of-my-students/
