And I love it even more when they request it because they’ve been asked to play
at an event! One of my violin students was asked to play violin at her church’s
Valentines’ Banquet! I very happily provided her this arrangement.
I absolutely love the “Glo-o-o-o-o-ria” in “Angels we Have Heard on High!” When my sister/student requested this one for recital, I was more than happy to oblige her and arrange it for piano and violin.
What is your favorite element of a Christmas carol?

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.
