We were so fortunate to host violinist Ms. Masha (Maria Storm), also a piano and violin teacher in Oak Park.
Not only is she talented with the violin, but a natural with students of all ages. Our students were taken by storm with her charm and passionate approach to music. Ms. Masha grew up in the Ukraine and classical music was as popular as rock and pop music. Her goal is to introduce students to the wonderful sounds of chamber muic and break the stereo-type of classical music only being for adults. We started with listening and then story-telling what was happening in the music. Students began illustrating their own stories and feelings on paper. Later, we discussed the sounds and stories with the entire group. Thank you for joining us Ms. Masha!!
