What does the studio license mean?
This package comes with a Studio License which licenses you to make as many prints as you need for students that you directly teach for your lifetime of teaching! This means that you can perform this piece multiple times (perhaps with different levels in different years) and never have to purchase the music again.
How can I use Take Me Out to the Ball Game creativity?
The sky’s the limit with what you can do with Take Me Out to the Ball Game with Cup Tapping. You perform it at a recital, for a school program, at a mall to help advertise for lessons…the sky’s the limit!
Note that if any other teachers wish their students to perform it with you, each teacher with students performing will need to purchase their own license of the piece.
Do we need to perform all 3 levels of Take Me Out to the Ball Game at once?
No, please don’t! The individual levels were carefully composed and choreographed to compliment the piano arrangement by themselves. So the intention is that only one level will perform it with the piano, though the piano and accompaniments go with all three levels.
However, if you want to be adventurous, you could certainly try a performance with all 3 (you can see it’s pretty good in the video, even though it was intended that way), BUT you must use a different sized cup for each level. This is important to keep the timbres different so it doesn’t sound like cup tapping cacophony since the rhythms are slightly different.
