Today, we take a look at some very early footage of The Jimi Hendrix Experience in Stockholm circa 1967. This peaceful ballad is a nice reminder that rock ‘n’ roll isn’t always aggressive and loud. Rumor has it that Hendrix wrote this song after a girlfriend locked him out of her apartment. Chances are she probably let him back in. By the way, how much do you want to be one of those teenagers sitting on the ground for this set?
On Saturday, Allegro Music was a vendor at the Winter Wonderland Holiday Bazaar and Concert at El Segundo High School. It was a great opportunity for us to help support the local music programs. The day consisted of six hours of performances including middle school bands, high school marching and concert bands, dance troupes, and a parents community band.
I wanted to dedicate this blog post to explaining the benefits that private music lessons can give your child. Many parents are frightened by the cost of lessons as well as the cost of buying/renting and maintaining an instrument. There are also those who don't believe their child will have a chance of becoming a professional musician, so therefore believe they are wasting their time and money by bringing them for music lessons. Even if your child doesn't pursue a music career there are lifelong benefits to learning music.
