Occasionally during lab time I will have my students watch a performance from YouTube. Sometimes I will have them evaluate the performance, other times, I will just have them enjoy.
When I do have them evaluate a performance I will download and use Natalie Wickhams’s with MusicMattersBlog – YouTube Performance Evaluation sheet.
I thought I would share some fun and different YouTube video’s you and your students might enjoy.
Among my favorite’s lately is from ThePianoGuys. If you haven’t heard of them yet, you must check them out! I subscribe to their YouTube channel and they have some really fun performances! Be sure to check out Cello Wars
A couple others that I just learned about from some teachers is 12 Pianists at 1 Piano. How fun would that be? Here’s another one: Gershwin Comedy Duo. Another funny duet that I enjoy, The Scarlet Cape
Victor Borge video’s are always a hit, so are the 5 Brown’s. Now of course you don’t always have to show “funny” performances, but these are a few I got a kick out of and thought I would pass along.
How about you? Do you use YouTube as a teaching tool in your studio? Do you have some YouTube favorites that you enjoy sharing?
