It's that time again, recital time!!
To my Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Kansas students: Are you ready?! We've been working so diligently in our lessons for this moment so make these last couple weeks of practice before the show count! Everyone is polishing their pieces, doing practice runs in front of mock audiences, and working on those exercises I gave them to calm the nerves. So keep it up! May 14th will be here before you know it! I'm so proud of all of you and cannot wait to see everyone in person soon!
I also want to give a special shout out to my students (and professional musicians themselves) Brian V. and Natalie S. You both showed up big time at your gigs over the past couple months, Brian at the FoCoMX Festival with your original songs performing an acoustic set, and Natalie in collaboration with pianist Mark at your jazzy concert in March! I know for a fact that a lot of people LOVED your performances and cannot wait to see more of both of you!
To my LA students: Shout out to Diana C. and Skylar I. for rocking it in their respective recital and competition! I was present for both performances and I'm so, SO proud of you two for working through that nervous energy and coming through with strong and beautiful showings. Sharing your gifts with others is so rewarding and I hope both of you know how many people you affected by sharing yours!
And to my beginning LA kiddos, you guys are just blowing me away with how fast you are learning piano and singing along with it to boot! It's such an excting thing to be a part of your music education and I cannot wait to see how you all develop as musicians over the next few years.
And get ready all of my students, we are going to be working hard over the summer on fundementals and song prep so we can have fun playing our Halloween themed songs for your in-lesson recitals and participate in MTAC, MTNA, and parlour recitals come Fall!
Yay! Go Creativity!
