It’s no secret that I <3 Taylor Swift. Maybe she’s not the best live performer or most diverse artist, but she writes catchy songs that are fun to sing and I don’t mind my students looking to her as a role model. There is no doubt that her music is the most frequently requested in my studio.
One of my favorite Taylor Swift songs is “The Best Day” — and that is the very song my student Jenna chose to record this past week. She’s been working very hard on it for the last couple of months, and I think she did a wonderful job! Take a listen:
It makes me so proud to hear my students’ practicing pay off, but not as proud as they are. I love playing back a recording after they have finished singing, and seeing their faces as they realize how great they sound. That’s one of the best parts of my job.
Let Jenna know I think she did a great job! Beautiful voice!
Thank you JoAnn — I certainly will, and I know she will very much appreciate the compliment!
I so enjoyed listening to Jenna!:) Thanks for sharing her recording with us. She has a wonderful voice and she is so brave! Way to go, Jenna.
I can’t wait to show her this! She will be thrilled! Thanks for all you do, Rachel!
My pleasure! Jenna is so talented and I’m thrilled to be her teacher :D
Thanks Rachel looking forward to her learning more.
I Had a quite knowledgeable musician at my home yesterday for lunch. I played the two songs Jenna had sung. This person could not believe this was coming from a nine year old!! Was quite impressed. Thank you for your teaching and training!!
That’s exactly what I thought when I heard Jenna sing at her very first lesson! She has so much natural talent. It’s a joy working with her!
WOW she sounds great!! I hate to admit it, but I too can’t help but like Taylor Swift! :)
Hi, Rachel. Thanks for sharing this. Sounds awesome. Was wondering, what kind of recording equipment do you use? Is it simple or complicated? Just curious ’cause I would like to have this capability. Thanks! : )
Thanks Lisa! Glad you enjoyed it. I wrote a blog post about the recording equipment I use:
Hope that helps!
