Welcome to Fall Lessons! I am excited to see so many returning students and also all the new students that have joined the studio in the past few weeks! I think this is going to be a great year for music-making!
The students at the group lesson chose to have a practicing contest where they can collect up beads based on the days per week they practice. They will be able to take the beads home and use them in whatever creations they like. I will be giving students more information about this contest over the next week and soon we will see the bead collections on the wall of the studio!
October 1st is our next Group Lesson. It will be held at the studio location in Newport News from 10:30 - 11:30 AM. I hope to see many students there. The lesson will include some performance practice as students prepare for the recital at the end of the month.
I now have confirmation that our recital is scheduled for Ewell Hall at William & Mary on October 30th (Sunday) at 2:30 pm. Students are welcome and encouraged to come in costume. Many students have already begun to work on their pieces for the recital, so be listening for spooky music in their practicing!
The first city-wide event of the year is Piano Olympics which will be held on November 5th (Newport News) and 6th (Williamsburg). This is an evaluation event where students play scales, chords and arpeggios for an adjudicator. They receive comments and points for their efforts. There is a small fee to enter the event. For more information please talk to Mrs. Luck.
And then we will start Holiday and Festival music!
