It’s that time of year! Music is in the air, holiday lights and candles are sparkling, and children and adults are preparing to celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and more. Ross and I have been recording some new music for gifts this holiday season, and we’ll be sharing videos in the coming weeks with some holiday music for all of you too. We’ve also been excited to promote our Holiday Special for new students.
Our students enjoy this time of year too. Many of them enjoy working on new holiday selections during December. We recommend that when you purchase a holiday book, you go with one that’s a little bit easier than your regular lesson book or studies. That way, you can sightread it (play it accurately on the first or second try) or at least learn it very quickly. No one wants to be struggling to finish learning a holiday tune in February!
There’s such diverse holiday music, in every style you can imagine. We’re making a playlist and it’s got everything from Nat King Cole to Kelly Clarkson on it! What do you like to listen to during the holidays?

We recently spent about six weeks in New Hampshire, where we taught a group ukulele class for older adults (for free, thanks to grant funding!) and offered performances for families, preschoolers, older adults and for general audiences. We plan to update our blog periodically with tips and information you might like to check out. Let us know what you’d like to see here, and we hope to hear from you soon!
