    Welcome to Season 3!

    Welcome to season 3 of Kids Q The Music! We are getting ready to bring you another year of musical adventures. To kick off this season, Rebecca and Zara are reminiscing about their favourite episodes (remember all the “fluffy noises” when our LSM students came up with new definitions for the word tutti?) and making a wish list of who they want to interview in upcoming episodes. Who are you most excited to hear from? Conductors? Performers? Composer? Kids? If you have a suggestion for a guest (or YOU want to be a guest) send our content manager an email: mairi@laneschoolofmusic.com

What do you think, should we come back for a third season?

    Opera’s Rising Star

    Opera’s Rising Star

    We often think opera singing is for grown-ups only. It requires advanced technical skills and a deep understanding of music and languages. But did you know there have been tons of roles written for children? Very famous examples are the Three Spirits from Mozart’s The Magic Flute. The Spirits, played by children, help guide the main character, Tamino, on his quest to save the princess. Nine-year-old singer, pianist and mega opera fan Emma Moreau recently sang the First Spirit with the Canadian Opera Company. Emma shares her experience working with professional opera singers, upcoming auditions, and sings the Spirit’s solo for us. Watch out for her name in lights!

    Musical Terms Trivia Show 2.0

    The Musical Terms Trivia Show is back for a second round! This time it’s a violinist party. Rebecca and Zara are joined by Siobhan and Corinne to give fresh definitions to four musical terms. These Lane School of Music students are experts when it comes to following musical directions. They know when to cut violin strings, how to whistle a song from your soul, and how to point a pink piano with their pinky while drinking pink lemonade. If you aren’t sure which terms these definitions belong to, you better get listening!

    The Show Must Go On

    The Show Must Go On

    You know the saying the show must go on? No matter what happens backstage or onstage, musicians must present their performance to the expectant audience. While events that could de-rail a performance are, for most musicians, just a scary thought that never comes to fruition; Lane School of Music violin student Brooksley experienced this firsthand. Moments before her recital performance, one of her violin strings snapped! With some quick thinking and very impressive performing skills, she still managed to serenade the audience without anyone knowing what was happening behind the scenes. Brooksley shares the whole story of what happened that day and gives a redemption performance of Etude.

    Sizing Up

    Sizing Up

    Kids grow quickly, but unfortunately their instruments will always stay the same size. There comes a point when your mini musician isn’t so mini anymore and will have to say goodbye to their best musical friend. This is what happened to two of the Lane children just a few weeks ago. Zara has a new violin named Kevin or Bob (name pending) and Charles is now playing the brother of his former cello, Chenry II.  Rebecca and Zara have tips on how to make the breakup a little easier, the signs that your child needs to upsize, and what to expect when adjusting to a larger instrument.

Excellent kid-ertainment!

Rebecca and Zara are an amazing co-host team! This podcast reminds me of my childhood, learning about great composers and all the different things music can do from a kids point of view. It especially connects with me because my mom also taught piano when I was a kid! This is a must listen for any family that values music and wants to bring more of it into their kids lives!
