The November-December, 2008 issue of Home Education Magazine includes some wonderful articles and features, and one of my favorites is Mary Nix’s interview with The 5 Browns: homeschooled siblings whose amazing piano artistry is winning hearts around the world!
The 5 Browns are a classical piano music group. Their repertoire includes mostly popular classical tunes, and they were the first group of five siblings to attend the musical conservatory Julliard, which they attended simultaneously for five consecutive years.
The 5 Browns have a wonderful website with photos, music videos, tour dates, ringtones, biographical information and much more. There are also some great 5 Browns videos on YouTube, featuring their performances from Rhapsody in Blue for five pianos to In the Hall of the Mountain King. Other video clips include a discussion of homeschooling and how they’ve been affected by their growing fame and success.
