Today is the first day of my spring semester of 2013. To celebrate, here’s a link dump of some very scholarly resources to start your semester off right.
Conductor cards, collect your favorites.
Trying to Get Good, trailer for a Jack Sheldon documentary (PG13 humor in there, you’ve been warned).
Whitney Music Box, a musical realization of the motion graphics of John Whitney as described in his book “Digital Harmony”
Watch a Trombonist’s Shockwave, “Musicians sitting in front of the trombone or trumpet have suffered from these shock waves.”
Simulated Guitar String Oscillations, what happens when you video your guitar strings from the inside with a cell phone camera?
Rachmaninov Had Big Hands, how is a small handed pianist able to cope?
John Swana Hits a Triple C!!! and he makes it look so easy.
Good luck to all students and teachers out there with your semester!
