Awhile back I posted how we don’t like compser study. We’ve stuck it out but I’m ready for a change next year. You gave me a lot of great new composers to look into like michael Giacchino, John Powell, Hans Zimmer, Hohn Williams & Howard Shore.
So how do I find more of these type composers? My kids are going to love it next year and I’m even getting excited. I think this will help and then the following year we’ll be more ready for a bit more classical music.
Don’t forget John Williams.
opps type-o on my part it should have said John Williams not Hohn WilliamssherazParticipant
Misty, if you like saxophone, my girls really like Kenny G. They even like to listen to him at night when they go to bed.marstarParticipant
When I read Sheraz’s post for Kenny G (who I enjoy!) I had to mention this female saxophonist, Kathy Hernandez. She is a fantastic musician and person. She plays gospel music. On her website there is rip-ipod samples and songs available via itunes. Enjoy your music study! http://www.revivalinprogress.com/music.htmlRachel WhiteParticipant
John Tesh;Stephen Sondheim (Broadway musicals); my favorite- Andrew Lloyd Webber, for a religious one, Requiem is AMAZING! This audio is my favorite part, but you can see other parts, too, you will be drifted away…well I am. Of course, I usually am by most of his music. You can buy Requiem on CD.
My husband the audio engineer recommends-Yanni; Yo Yo Ma; Robin Ford (the Blues); Roy Buchanan (Blues); Allison Krauss (BLuegrass);
Mark O’Conner is a great composer. He is blending American fiddle music with classical and doing an amazing job. http://markoconnor.com/
Everyone always comes through for me! Thanks a bunch I will have enough for 2 years now! Yeppie, maybe by then the more indepth (Bach etc) will more tolerable. Actually maybe I’ll switch around one new, one older/ Thanks
