Happy Mother's Day 2018!
END OF THE YEAR: GUILD, RECITAL
The end of the school year is quickly approaching, and Guild/Recital/End of Piano Quarter is even sooner--three more weeks as of this coming Tuesday! I will be sending home Guild sheets this coming week which contain a summary of all required elements of the exam at the National level--10 items! I told many students that THIS WEEK is the week to get the pieces polished and memorized, so there is enough time to feel comfortable and focus on artistry and expression, rather than notes and memory. I am so proud of these kids, they have worked hard all year and really sound wonderful! Quite a few students have learned over 20 pieces this year; several are over 30 pieces, and one is close to 40! Families, wouldn't it be a great experience for students to put on a mini-recital for grandparents, neighbors, and friends? Please consider having them share their music with others! If any of you are interested in playing in a retirement center or nursing home or other community center, let me know, and I can help you set something up! They are so appreciative!
SUMMER LESSONS AND CAMP
Summer lessons are available these weeks on a limited basis. Please let me know which weeks would work for you. If your student is planning to do the Concerto Competition in November at the Intermediate or Advanced levels, 2 lessons *minimum* are required.
