    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.

    Thanks

    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.

    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.html

    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/
