A Gift for our Violin Professor: Michael Jackson Medley!

April 18, 2011 at 5:06 PM

My roommates and I met during the first week of our freshman year of college.  We quickly became best friends...our violin professor even nicknamed us the Threetles!  During our four years with our teacher, we learned that he loves everything Michael Jackson.  During lessons, we'll listen to MJ songs for help with rhythm.  We'll watch YouTube clips of MJ for musical inspiration.  We even found out that our teacher can do a great Michael Jackson impression!

This weekend, my friends and I all gave our senior recitals.  I arranged a tribute to our violin professor and Michael Jackson as a surprise ending to our weekend of recitals.  The arrangement ended with "Heal the World," a sentimental reminder that through music, we can make the world a better place to live in.  Check out the video of our performance here!!

 This was really fun to watch, it was really beautiful of you three to compose such an hommage to your professor, I'm sure he will never forget it. Congratulations with the upcoming Bachelor's degree and best wishes for your Master studies or wherever your path may lead.
