I am SO excited for today’s post I’m just going to cut to the chase here – Loopy Stanley is finished! Over the past month and a half, Music Therapists from around the country have inquired in response to our original video , where North Dakota’s School for the Deaf students made music with my Ipad as the start of a project to have various Music Therapists and their students contribute to a song without ever meeting or planning their contributions beforehand. Of all the inquiries, 4 instrument submissions were delivered by Music Therapists Carly Litvik of Sacramento California and Rachelle Norman of Kansas City, Missouri, featuring themselves and their students on the Tambourine, Gathering Drum, Saxophone, and Oboe. You can check out the Loopy Stanley WORLD Premiere by clicking on the image below – Enjoy!
By the time Music Moves readers view this, NDSD students will have just had their own premiere during their usual Music Therapy time this week. They have been so excited for this and so grateful for the submissions we had! It’s a busy time of year, to be sure, and we know many more MT-BCs wanted to participate, so after the many inquiries surrounding and beyond the submissions we received, I’ve made the decision that Loopy Stanley will become an annual project – we look forward to seeing more artists join us next year! Very special thanks for Carly and Rachelle for their submissions in this maiden voyage for Loopy Stanley and his crew from NDSD – who knows where the next Loopy Stanley will travel? Maybe you’ll find him in YOUR area!
