Guest Blogger: Dr. Angela Heck-Mueller

Recently, we decided to give “guest blogging” a go.  Occasionally, you may see entries from guest bloggers about topics of their choice.  Our guest blog’s “maiden voyage blogger” is Dr. Angela Heck-Mueller.  She wanted to share a bit of information on an historical piece of music for flute that may be useful to students who wish to perform it.  And, guess what?  This piece is playable for many of her flute students!  Even if you’re not a flautist, however, the work has been transcribed for other instruments, so this article may still be useful whether you play the flute, clarinet, or even the trombone or tuba.  Here is a note from Angela.
Dear Students, Parents, & Staff,
In July 2008 I published the following article in Flute Talk Magazine.  It was intended as a historical performance guide for Robert Schumann’s Three Romances for Flute and Piano.  This information is not only beneficial to flutists studying the piece, but also to those who choose to learn a transcription on his/her own instrument.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Glee Camp 2013

Michelle Tuesday Music School held its third annual Glee Summer Music Camp the week of July 15, 2003. Our summer music camp students, who named themselves “Jem and the Holograms” after the 80’s cartoon featuring a rock-and-roll diva, worked hard all week learning the music and choreography to their popular lineup of songs. The song list was based on the Glee Camp “Let’s Have a Sleepover!” theme of the week:

  • Somebody That I Used to Know (Gotye)
  • Call Me Maybe (Carly Rae Jepsen)
  • Never Getting Back Together (Taylor Swift)
  • Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Miley Cyrus)

The girls dressed in their jammies and entertained their audience with all the sass and pizzazz worthy of a group of girls at a sleepover. The choreography was killer and the vocals were confident and fun. We are very proud of our Glee Camp divas! Check out photos from MTMS Glee Camp 2013, below: Continue reading “Glee Camp 2013”

Rock Festival 2013 featuring youth band Apocalyptic Siren

Michelle Tuesday Music School in Gahanna, Ohio held its first annual Summer Rock Festival on Thursday, July 11th, with a final performance on the afternoon of Saturday, July 13th. Our group, who dubbed themselves “Apocalyptic Siren,”  featured two drummers, which led to the selection of highly percussion-based rock songs for the final performance. Our hardworking music students had the opportunity to rotate through several instruments, including drums, tambourine, guitar, and bass, offering a fun variety for the kids. Lead singer Mason was naturally entertaining, and the entire crew devised and proposed to their instructors a rock-style introduction and welcome, featuring a cacophony of screaming and drumming, to kick off the final performance. All in all, it was a great day of fun and a rockin’ final concert. The lineup included:

  • We Will Rock You by Queen
  • Hey, Ho! by the Lumineers
  • Rumour Has It by Adele

Enjoy photos of the 2013 Rock Festival, below, featuring youth band Apocalyptic Siren: Austin, Alex, Cody, Faith, and Mason. Watch for our 2014 Rock Band Camp and Rock Festival sign-ups in early spring to nab your spot. Continue reading “Rock Festival 2013 featuring youth band Apocalyptic Siren”
