Hard Work = Big Achievements

Spring 2021

Since January, students have participated in two group classes, a recital, a music festival, and lots and lots of piano and flute playing. These things are worth celebrating! Our students are amazing - just look below for a few examples.


Playing in the Winter Recital

Students performed beautifully in their online 'Celebration!' recital released on February 20 via YouTube. I'm so proud of them for preparing and executing such a great program!

Participating in Federation Festival

So proud of these 18 students who have been working hard to prepare their music and pass their theory tests for our February Festival! Well done, students! 

Achieving Goals

Congratulations to our first students to complete 30 pieces this school year! 

Congratulations to these kiddos for being the first to earn their Johannes Brahms composer cards!


Remember to take time to celebrate ALL the moments; big or small. Have a happy spring!

Celebrating an amazing year!

End-of-Year Wrap-Up

June 2020

This year has been full of fun and success! It ended rather strangely as we transitioned online due to the pandemic, but everyone adjusted well and continued to make great strides forward in their progress.

Here are a couple of fun end-of-year stats; our students in K5-4th grades practiced a combined total of 831 days and our students in 5th-11th grades completed 433 pieces and donated $43.30 to help Friday Musicale provide scholarships to music students. I'm so proud of our kids!

I’m so proud of our two seniors who performed their senior recitals via livestream during the month of May. Best wishes to both of them as they begin the next stage of their journey!

Livestreamed Senior Recital #1

 








Congratulations to this student for earning all 6 composer cards this year! Students in K5-4th earn a card for every practice chart that they complete. Each card represents 25 days practiced. Students in 5th grade earn a card for every 10 pieces they learn.

All six composer cards!

Quite a few students moved up to new books this year! It's always excited to see this visual mark of their progress.

Several students earned Gold Cups from Federation Festival this year. I’m so excited to give them out later this summer! Certificates will also be handed out to all festival participants throughout the summer.

Have an awesome summer!

It's the end of the studio year!

End-of-Year Wrap-Up

May/June 2019

Wow! What a great year this has been. There were moments periodically that I wondered, in the midst of the busyness, if it would ever come, but here it is! Students showed wonderful creativity throughout the year in our various projects and were successful in their many performance opportunities. Here’s a glimpse into some of their achievements:

Our 7 students in K5-4th grades practiced a combined total of 753 days and our 13 students in 5th-12th grades completed 511 pieces and donated $51.10 to help The MusicLink Foundation assist students in affording a music education.

Two students collected all six composer cards this year! Students in K5-4th earn a card for every practice chart that they complete. Each card represents 25 days practiced. Students in 5th grade earn a card for every 10 pieces they learn. These girls put in a lot of practice!

     

Several students moved up a level in their books over the course of the year. Awesome!

Here’s to a great year behind us and even more wonderful things ahead! Happy summer, everyone!
