Life just got a little more hectic. School started at home and we are adjusting to our new schedule. We are home educating a third grader and a first grader. It feels like I am educating myself too. I am learning American History through my sons’ lessons. I am also learning Phonics – pretty soon I will be able to say all of the English words right, i.e., in the American way. 😀 Isn’t it odd? My sons are learning to pronounce their words from a non-native speaker. 😉 My husband finds himself busy correcting the children’s diction at night.
Anyway, what I really want to talk about here is the piece of music I chanced upon in Youtube. I like listening to music – the instrumental variety in particular – but I rarely have the time to enjoy music. The noise and level of activity in our house do not lend well for music appreciation. But the other day, all four children took a nap. Suddenly, I had a quiet house. I decided that it was a great time to search for those foreboding cello pieces – the choice was inspired by Grimm’s Monroe who is a blutbad cellist in the show. However, instead of a melancholy piece, I found a cello version of Canon in D. I could not resist trying this version. I love Canon in D and that this version had a Rockelbel to it made it all the more irresistible for me. (I guess I am not a music purist). This version is by a group called Pianoguys. They did rock this piece, literally. The amusing video did not hurt either.
I hope this will provide some levity and relaxation for you as it did for me.
I so enjoyed this Canon version that I looked for more of their music. Here are some samples –
I am not very fond of the electric cello (oh my!) but it has its own character. Whatever that means.
Oh by the way, I am not paid by Pianoguys for this post. I am just one who enjoyed their work and wanted to share their music.
Have a great evening/day to you all. 🙂
