Practicing Mozart Piano Concerto in HCX

We got the opportunity to test drive one of the brand new orchestra accompaniments from TimeWarp Technologies on Home Concert Xtreme. This is the first movement of the Mozart Piano Concerto in A Major, K. 414 played by my son Antonio "Nio" Ajero. The MIDI file is optimized to be used with the Garritan Personal Orchestra as the tone generator. You can learn more about this technology at: http://www.timewarptech.com

Let It Go piano

Let It Go from Disney's Frozen arranged for piano by Mona Rejino from Popular Piano Solos for All Methods, Book 5, 2nd edition published by the Hal Leonard Corporation. My 5-year-old daughter broke her left arm. So I helped out playing the left hand part while she played the right hand. The look on her face at the end of the song is why I love teaching piano!
