Classical Crossover Less

In this dynamic performance demonstration by renowned concert rock violinist Aaron Meyer, students are introduced to music basics as well as to the technological tools used to integrate classical, contemporary pop and world music. Using digital studio effects and student participation, Aaron demonstrates the connections and differences between the acoustic and electric violin, discusses the history of classical music and the science of sound production, and shares some of his original Classical Crossover compositions. Students also learn how many of the demonstrated musical principles connect to math, science and computer technology. At the end of the performance, Aaron takes questions and shares stories of introducing the violin to villagers in the Fiji Islands and performing a benefit concert in Thailand five days after the 2004 tsunami.
