It’s Anime week at Princeton Violin and Viola Studio. With gray weather outside and long days inside, it’s time for some creative escape to round out our challenging technical work. My inspiration is a wonderful (and virtuosic!) recording of the main theme of Miyazaki’s “Howl’s Moving Castle” in an arrangement by Shadow Tenshii on YouTube. Interested students are picking up the tune by ear, or with the notes, and trying it out. The sheet music slides by on the YouTube video to help them out.
Some students are composing and/or improvising their own Anime themes as well. I look forward to hearing them!
Here’s the YouTube link of “Howl’s Moving Castle” for you to enjoy as well!
