ABOUT SuperNova

Classical Meets Creativity!

SuperNova is an exhilarating composition by David Cutler that dramatically reimagines the 17 pieces from Suzuki Violin School, Volume 1. While melodies remain largely unchanged, rhythm section accompaniments are virtuosic, exploratory, and super fun, inspired by different musical genres from around the globe.

EDUCATION

Transform your teaching/playing

 

SuperNova pairs sophisticated music with a number of educational priorities:

  1. RIVETING INSPIRATION. Connecting familiar melodies to contemporary aesthetics, immediately engaging listeners.

  2. ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE. Demonstrating the highest level of musicianship through every aspect of this project, we encourage students to match those standards. 

  3. TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT. Utilizing easy literature to develop advanced string techniques. 

  4. RHYTHMIC PRECISION. Strengthening “groove” and pulse when playing with rhythm section.

  5. CREATIVE CAPACITY. Granting permission and providing structures for performers to make personalized decisions.

  6. EXPOSURE & VERSATILITY. Integrating classical, jazz, popular, and world music genres.

  7. ENERGIZING REVIEW. Presenting exciting fresh contexts when returning to repertoire.

  8. MULTI-LEVEL ENGAGEMENT. Offering an appealing framework for combining advanced, intermediate, even beginning students.

  9. FIERCE EMPOWERMENT. Building self-esteem and confidence, making budding musicians feel like rock stars.

  10. UNAPOLOGETIC FUN. “Playing” music should be joyous—SuperNova delivers!

“I love the creativity, professional standard and overall AWESOMENESS of SuperNova. Can't wait to use these accompaniments as a new way to hear classic repertoire in group class, review at home, and as a delightful addition to solo recitals and group class concerts."
