Welcome to the
"traveling with Vicki to listen to music" page!
Each week I travel to somewhere in the world and give an introduction to an instrument or musicians in that region with video links to listen to. I start with a brief video of me talking about the topic for the week, and it can include:
- interesting facts behind the music
- how you might approach listening to the music
- history of the instrument (maybe 3000 years)
- background of the development of the music
The series was designed for my piano students, however, as it evolved, I came to see that it's interesting for all of us to reflect on the vast beauty of instruments in the world and the musicians that play them.
I absolutely believe that it's good for all of us to expand the styles of music that we listen to, and that it makes us a better musician & a better person!...whether we perform, compose or listen...
