What a fun place this is to teach.  10 minutes ago, Kitty just heard her first Dona Nobis Pacem from Bach’s B minor Mass.  And I got to be here.  It’s a really big fugue, full of truth, honesty, directness and one of the most perfect examples of the use of Timpani for the greater good.  Dozens of folks on the stage doing different things(or the same thing all at different times), getting along perfectly well, parts colliding, the collisions of which provide the hope and the joy.  Kitty’s playing a fugue too, and now hers just sounds joyous, too, noisy and fun, instead of labored and overthought.  Sometimes it’s so much better to let others do the teaching.

    great Blog! How wonderful to hear about the joy of learning and exploring Idyllwild like this.
    Plus it reminded me to download this song from Itunes

    Soon we will be able to download the Idyllwild arts playlist of student performances- that will be cool.

    I will put a link on my sites too


    (or Morgan Wilson’s mom)
    say hi to Kitty too
