A Musician With Many Hats | Episode 15
This week we are joined by a violinist, composer, photographer, cat lover and movie star. Oh! Did we mention this is just one person? Alice Hong is a musician who wears many different hats, and being a musician is what granted her all these opportunities. Alice is a member of the Edgewood String Quartet (who get to play for 1000 candles twice a week), a composer of beautiful classical music and a photographer and videographer who helps other musicians in their businesses and careers. She even rubs elbow with The Rock in a new Netflix movie. We are starstruck!

Movie Music Improv:
Music in movies help the audience understand the setting, emotions, and atmosphere of a scene. Create your own movie score with this improvisation activity.
Choose a scene from your favourite movie.
Watch it with the sound on and off.
Decide what dynamics, pitches, feelings and rhythms are needed to bring the scene to life (there is a PDF below to help organize your ideas).
Improvise on your instrument using those ideas while playing the scene.
