Jim Jordan of Waxahachie, who has developed a new method of teaching music, will play piano and sing as well as present three of his students in a unique presentation of Music for the Public at 4 p.m. Sunday, May 29, at Waxahachie Bible Church.
Bella Hicks, 12, Gus Trangott, 7, and David Medina, 14, all of Waxahachie will assist Jordan in a special program that includes the music of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Dubuss, Joplin and Gershwin.
The audience will have a chance to participate and ask questions concerning Jordan’s approach to teaching music titled “Music as a Second Language.”
Hicks and Trangott will demonstrate how all beginners learn under the system and how the greatest of music, such as the well-known theme from the last movement of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, is composed of the most simple of materials.
Medina, who has studied with Jordan for two years, will demonstrate the advances has made by performing the opening movement of Beethoven’s Sonata, Op. 2 No. 1, two well-known movements from Mozart sonatas in C major and A minor, frequently played by concert pianists, as well as several pieces by Claude Debussy.
