The Music of St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because I love the sound of Celtic music sonorities. Every year this holiday gives me a good “excuse” to teach my young Cornerstone Music Conservatory students the joy of the rhythms and harmonies of this music. I also teach them how to dance a jig and my more advanced students are required to compose their own Irish /Celtic tunes. There is just something about the music that is so fresh, vibrant and energetic that it really does put a smile on my face and makes it very difficult to be sad about anything.
