I'm here at the Botanical Gardens and this is a really special place for me and J. It's a place where we've received a lot of spiritual, mental, and emotional healing after going through a really hard time in our life.
Today we're going to learn how to play How Far I'll Go from Moana on the guitar.
There are 11 chords you'll need to know to play this song. E, F#m, C#m, A, B, Am, F, C, Dm, Bb, and Bbm.
Several of these chords are barre chords, which can be difficult for the beginner. So make sure you work on barre chords with your guitar teacher. If you're not taking guitar lessons with Teach 2 Teach yet, make sure you take a free trial lesson. If you don't live in NJ or NY, you can take a webcam lesson.
We took the boat across Greenwood Lake to Fox Island Creamery to find out our favorite ice cream flavors! Emma LOVES going out on the boat, and this ice cream place has dock access.
Now, everyone has different taste preferences, so we want to know what YOU all think, too! Have you been to Fox Island Creamery yet? Do you have a favorite ice cream flavor? Take our survey and let us know which flavor is your favorite!
Last month, the Teach 2 Teach Teachers got together for an awesome time on Greenwood Lake. We swam, water-skied, played volleyball, and played board games. It was a blast!
We always want to make sure that we honor our hard-working teachers. They will be playing at the Teacher Showcase next month (Sept. 16th, 2017). Come out and show your support!
1. Be Antifragile
Nassim Taleb wrote a great book called Antifragile. There is a big difference between being fragile, resilient, and anti-fragile.
Fragile people break under pressure. Resilient people break only under extreme pressure. But anti-fragile people only get stronger under pressure.
Choose to be antifragile. Repeat this as your mantra: OMMS. Obstacles Make Me Stronger. (Thanks for this tip goes to Brian Johnson, Philosopher's Notes)
Today Kay and I brought Emma to the Harness Racing Museum in Goshen, NY.
Kay's Dad, who passed away in Dec. 2012, was a huge fan of harness racing. The sport brought him so much joy that he video-taped every harness race on TV for 20 years. When he passed, his family donated the collection to the Hall of Fame in Goshen.
As Kay and her 6 siblings were growing up, Chas would take the kids to this harness racing museum. He used this venue to pass his appreciation for the thrill of racing on to his kids. Today, we were able to continue that tradition in his honor and pass it along to the third generation.
We held a brief video "interview" with Zach to get to know him better and introduce him to all of you. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
Zach will be teaching with us and assisting with any of your questions via phone calls and emails, a job previously done by the beautiful Alethea Wilhelm. Alethea will be stepping into our new Program Coordinator role as well as continuing to teach with us, and Zach will be taking over her customer service responsibilities. We're looking forward to everything Zach will bring to the table with his organizational and interpersonal skills.
Do you want to improve your singing voice? If so, it’s important to find your vocal range and then working on stretching it as you train your voice. Of course, before you can find your range, it’s important to understand the definition of vocal range.
Vocal range refers to the measures of the pitches your voice can produce, beginning at the lowest note you can produce and reach from the highest note your voice can produce. It’s important to note that untrained singers generally have a far more limited range than well-trained singers, which means it’s possible to change and expand your range with the proper exercises and training.
