Interesting takes on classical music

Now I understand that sometimes music teachers have it tough. It can be daunting to cover all the curriculum while still trying to make the lessons seem entertaining. I find having supplemental videos can make it entertaining. Here are a few for a light break away from the classroom rules.

Cello Wars – Star Wars – Piano Guys

Coldplay – Paradise (African style) – Piano Guys

Beethoven’s 5/ One Republic’s Secrets – The Piano Guys

Kevin Olusola – Cello and beatboxing

Kevin plays Bieber’s Baby on the cello

Matt Haimovitz and Christopher O’Riley – Arcade Fire’s Empty Room

Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters by Symphony and Metallica

Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra – The Galileo Project

The Royal Conservatory of Music

Edgar Cruz – Bohemian Rhapsody – Classical Guitar

Clifford Brown – Delilah

Miles Davis – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Andre Rieu conducts Carmina Burana – O Fortuna

Star Wars and John Williams accapella

John Williams – the best works

Howard Shore – Creating Lord of the Rings

David Usher – Black Black Heart

Tea Party – Walking Wounded
