Isn’t it great when you find just the right music, for just the right student, at just the right time?
Back when I first reviewed Elena Cobb’s music in 2012, I had mostly beginner students in my studio having recently relocated to Ohio. Recently, I was pleased to have the opportunity to give Elena’s book of jazz-inspired early intermediate pieces, called Higgledy Piggledy Jazz, to my student, Emma. Emma has really gone to town with this book — she loves the pieces and loves playing along with the backing tracks on the accompanying CD.
I asked Emma if she would like to take a video to share with the composer and she was thrilled with the idea. I hope you enjoy Emma’s little wink at the beginning of the video…it pretty well shows her personality!
Check out the rest of the Higgledy Piggledy Jazz book at Elena’s website.
[Note: Emma and I are still working on being able to play those fast triplets loosely and easily. It’s a work in progress!]
