October Newsletter

Hello everyone! 

Once again, new celebrations and fun activities come our way this time of the year. Amongst the many things this season represents, Halloween is one of those favorite events everyone looks forward to. But what really makes Halloween so unique? Is it the candy? The costumes? The pumpkin carving? The decorations? Or perhaps it is a combination of multiple elements?

Halloween takes us a step closer into a world of magic and fun. From trick or treating to pumpkin carving, Halloween has fun activities for everybody. But

what about Music? Is Halloween music a key ingredient to the Halloween experience? We definitely think so!

A Song for Halloween

Like decorations and seasonal traditions, music can play a big part in the special events we celebrate. 

This month Halloween takes us into a world of costumes, spookiness, magic, pumpkins, candy, secrets, tricks, and treats. Still, the world of Halloween wouldn’t be complete without a particular style of music that we consider “Halloweenish.” But what does that really mean? Can anyone make music sound spooky, as in Halloween Music?
Here’s an idea for a fun activity this Halloween… Can you write a Halloween song or a melody that resonates with you? 

To get you started, try using the notes of the following scale based in the key of E minor and see what you can come up with!

E – F# – G – A# – B – C – D# – E

Let us know if you get to write a Halloween song or your own Halloween-themed melody before Sunday, October 31st, and share it with us for a special Halloween treat!

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
