Making Beautiful Music Together

Music23
Saturday was an interesting day, the best part of which was listening to the children play music.  Thanks to a very nice tax return, we pumped up the creative processes in our music room by hooking up the baby grand piano to a midi interface and a MacBook laptop with Logic Express so that Sarah could create and turn her music into notation, record, and then upload it to iTunes.  Right now, she is the only one working the hardest to get her beautiful compositions on iTunes.  Matthew still has a way to go.



Music1
Garageband is really cool, and we also downloaded some tutorials from Sarah's favorite artists.  Like the song "Bubbly" by Colby Caillat. 



Music2
Sarah practiced all day.



Music3
And of course, Matthew and Glen wanted to get in on the action.



Music5
Matthew loves playing the guitar in striped pajamas.



Music8
Glen enjoys playing the drums.  And, I enjoy it too just as long as he has on the earphones and I can't hear it.



Music10
Hannah seems to always be at Sarah's feet when she is playing the piano.



Music11
Pretty cool setup, eh? 



Music13
Pretty crowded too, but I don't care. 



Music15
Sarah got into the swing of the whole setup, and was determined to learn her favorite song.



Music18
She practiced and practiced.



Music19
She enjoyed the video of Colby teaching how to play "Bubbly" on the guitar.



Music22
And I enjoyed listening.



Music26
"Hey, quiet down there, I'm trying to show Mom something I learned on the guitar."



Music27
"Mom, this is really annoying.  Why can't I have this room all to myself?"



Music28
"I really hate sharing.  I'm going to disconnect all of Matthew's instruments one day - soon."



Music30
"Finally - I have the room all to myself." 



Music32
Not for long. 

Note: All of these pictures were treated with Totally Rad's Action "Pool Party."
