Lesson 8 – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Coolness

This is Miserlou. Miserlou is the theme from one of our favorite movies of all time. We just wanted to put it here to remind you that you should always play songs you think are super cool. Not lame. And, this song is cool. It’s cool because it’s got a Turkish or Greek or even Sephardic modal scale that it uses. We can’t agree on what it is. It defies logic and description. So. Therein lies the coolness.

“Annie and The Savage Hearts did a fabulous job of engaging students from all ages of our string feeder area ­elementary through high school. The students and audience members loved the band’s performance and the high energy they brought to our concert! The students had so much fun learning new songs by rote and the pieces were well-arranged for a variety of levels of playing.”
