It's Official...


The Ear Power song for October 2010 - "Bulletproof" by La Roux - is not beloved. Not one of my students has expressed an interest in learning the song this month. Red-haired children the world over are silently shedding single tears down their pale, pale faces.
I didn't nominate this song... one of my students did. Then it received votes in favor of it from a number of other students, to the extent that it ranked 3rd in popularity on my most recent "Ear Power" song list. 
Maybe students are getting burnt out. I don't know, but I'm not going to cease the Ear Power endeavor. I believe it is eminently worthwhile. Perhaps I just need to stay patient in waiting for younger students' musical tastes to mature. Not that I love "Bulletproof" much - I don't! But I do prefer it to any of the songs we've worked on previously. Never mind, there are always plenty of other things to work on in the meantime.

The Pop Concert will be presented Sunday, 11/3 at Smalltown Space in Castro Valley. The venue is located at 22222 Redwood Rd. right next door to the Trader Joe's.

The maximum occupancy of the space is 50. Family and friends are welcome to attend this event, but we will need to limit the number to no more than 4 guests per performer.
If you want to bring any refreshments to share with the audience and performers, that is welcomed.
