It’s been a long time coming, with glitches and scheduling delays galore, but Loopy Stanley is finally here! We had participants this year from two cities in North Dakota (though if you counted the towns each individual student came from, we really had more like 9 towns in the state represented) PLUS participants from Melbourne Australia!! My students were SO excited to be able to share Loopy Stanley internationally, so we’re very proud to be able to finally present to you… Loopy Stanley 2013!
You may notice some of the same visual “timing” glitches as the promotional video – this was my first year crossing over with Apple and PC products (while last year’s Loopy Stanley began on the Ipad, everything else was done on PC, this year I became the owner of an Iphone and the iMovie app, and everything changed, including how videos were shot and edited!) so there’s lots to learn for next year, but it was a pleasure being able to improvise around this well-known melody to form such a positive association for my Deaf students between music and socialization, and for my Blind students to be able to explore their own musicality in a fun and engaging way. We hope that you enjoyed the video and will consider joining us in 2014 – the more the merrier!
Coming up soon on the blog there may well be another hiatus, as World Bellydance Day and my first ever Board Re-Certification Cycle approaches (eek!) but you better believe I’ll have plenty to share when those two events come to pass – LOTS of cool things going on in this busy Music Therapist’s life – wouldn’t have it any other way!
