Let’s Make Music — For You From The Friends Life Care Team
This is the next post in the series written by the Friends Life Care team just for you. We are sharing creative, interesting and mindful things that we are doing as a result of changes to our usual life routines caused by the Covid-19 situation. We are encouraging you to do new things or reconnect with things you used to do and enjoy.
When Flute and Guitar Come Together
My bachelor’s degree is in music; I’m a flutist and have continued to play regularly throughout the years, primarily flute and piano duets with a good friend. (We’ve played together for over 30 years.) Of course, our sessions were suspended with the Covid-19 Stay-at-Home order.
I was trained as a classical flutist; my husband, Jann Glider, is an accomplished musician (guitar, fiddle and banjo) although in different genres. He’s fluent in classic rock, blues, old time and jazz. What better time than an pandemic to finally play some music together, something we’ve been meaning to do for years?! We ordered some flute and classical guitar duets that we’ve been practicing.
We hope you enjoy our recording of Greensleeves!
Sing a song. Play an instrument. Listen to your favorite radio or Pandora station and hum along. We encourage you to make some music. Research shows music can have positive impacts on health and wellbeing. I can add that it is also fun. Share what you’ve been doing in the comment section. We’d like to hear about it.
