It's Finished.


It's taken me a couple of months to get it all together, but I finally finished my teaching website this morning.  My intention is to use it as an advertising tool for now.  I could also see adding an online payment option to the site so that parents could pay there if it was more convenient.  I might add a page where I play some of the standard pieces my students learn so they could have an example to watch during the week.  I've even seen videos where teachers record various ways to practice tricky spots in a piece.  It will probably be 2012 before I get to that...

Want to see my favorite part of the website?  Click on Videos, then Hindemith Solo Cello Sonata, then move the video ahead to the last movement, or 7:55.  I like this because people usually think of cello as being an instrument that plays slow, lyrical movie themes.  It is.  But, we can also play fun stuff like the Hindemith on it.  Or, if you really want to see cellos branch out, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AYEgwwCYWw  It's not really my style, but it's pretty cool.

So, take a look around www.leahsweeney.com and then leave me your comments and suggestions on here!
