PHOEBE HUNT UNITES MUSICIANS AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE
PLANT SEEDS OF MUSIC
VIRTUAL PRACTICE INITIATIVE
CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ARTIST CREATES EDUCATIONAL
RESOURCE IN THE WAKE OF COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Plant Seeds of Music is a free online educational resource intended to create an opportunity for musical growth and connection through practice. The purpose is to foster connection within the global community of musicians, from music dabblers to advanced pickers, to music fans alike.
Among the artists whose videos have been released in the first wave are:
Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, Sierra Hull,
Tony Trischka, Allison Russell, Paul Kowert, and Brittany Haas
Other artists that have committed involvement include:
Molly Tuttle, Carrie Elkin, Mary Bragg, Dori Freeman, Katie Shore,
Kala Ramnath, Marcia Ball, Rushad Eggleston, David Grisman, Terri Hendrix,
Rachel Price, Peter Rowan, and April Verch

 

 

“Is it possible for us to utilize the unifying power that music holds… through the internet?”
Initiated by artist Phoebe Hunt, this idea has culminated with over 75 artists committing to donate a short video which answers the question, “What are you practicing?”   
Throughout the summer, the project will also be raffling off donated instruments from within the community to raise funds for social justice organizations that participants collectively vote upon. 
Phoebe Hunt has taken on the role of student attaché this summer and has created a private education group via Facebook for those who opt in to study with her, moving through the catalog of donated videos one day at a time. She and her team have also compiled the teaching points from each video and created a workbook for those in the private Facebook group.
