October Adult Rep Class

Every October and April I hold an Adult Rep Class for my adult students. This provides a “safe” venue for them to perform for each other, without being unnerved by a very large audience in a formal recital format. This week, we all had a great time at the October Rep Class hosted by Evelyn.

We began with cocktails and enjoyed some light conversation. Everyone contributed to the food table and we had a nice little spread to nibble on while we play.

I try to have a game or two in order to have some fun and educate at the same time. Last October we played name-that-creepy-classical-tune. Our October rep class is this week I had a fun game planned…

Name the CREEPY musical dynamic or instruction. 

We had a great time playing games and everyone took home a Halloween treat!

In this game, I read a definition and the students guessed the correct matching musical term. The winner with the most correct matches received a small fun Halloween-themed prize. (Will and Megan tied for first place!)

We also played another “name that tune” but this time, I played a piece of creepy music and given a multiple choice format, the students circled the correct TV show or movie associated with the music from the choices on their game sheet.

After our games, each student performed for each other a very special Halloween-themed piece they have been working on in lessons. I also joined the fun in this class by performing a duet with Evelyn.

Overall, the Adult Rep Classes are a fun way to gather socially and share our love of music! (Music, Food, Friends….its the recipe for any successful party).
