“Come Thou Fount” has to be one of the top favorites for most of my students. One of my violin students requested it for our upcoming music recital, so I was more than happy to oblige her and arrange a violin-piano duet for us to play. I can’t wait to show her the music!
Another first for WAJN: Violin quartet. 🙂 I have enjoyed arranging for string ensembles for a few years now, but as with most things, I tend to do it when I have a specific reason to do it. Well, now with about ten violin students, I have a reason! We have a homeschool tea coming up, and one of the coordinators asked if I could get a few of my students to pull something together. The theme of the tea is “Celebrating our Individuali-tea.” I thought there was no better hymn to use than “Take My Life,” because no matter how different we are, God can still use our lives for His purposes.
I recorded myself (double and triple 😉 ) so that everyone could hear the song as a completion.
I’m excited to introduce my first published violin/piano duet!

Also, if you’re not following me on YouTube, last week I did another first: some piano impromptu videos. I need to work a little on mastering even impromptu.
