Oliver completed his pentatonic scales, arpeggios and chords and performed them for Keyboard Merits, earning an excellent rating! Great job, Oliver.
Jason can recognize all the notes on the grand staff in less than one minute! He also has completed all his pentatonic scales, arpeggios and block chords.
Congratulations Jason on your accomplishments!
Forrest knows all his pentatonic scales, arpeggios and block chords and can play whatever you ask to hear because they are memorized! Great job, Forrest!
Mackenzie has practiced 100 days without missing a one! Her name and accomplishment will be in “Piano Explorer” magazine soon. Great job, Mac!
Hazel has a great lesson! She finished a book, completed a big project of Muscle Memory and memorized her piece for Keyboard Merits! Great job, Hazel.

Keyboard Merits (piano exams) are Friday, May 22nd. Bring only the music you need; no bags, no backpacks, no lanyards with badges, no brag cards. I will provide the judge with all the music. You will stay 6 feet or more from the judge. There will be chairs 6 feet apart in the foyer of the church for a parent. Only the student will come in the hallway where you see the judge. There are no warmup pianos available. I will give completed five-finger trophies and certificates and take a picture. Ribbons and personally engraved trophies come in a few weeks.
I am so proud of all the practice you have done. During the month of April, the following students have completed these books: Completing Prelude by Piano Pronto are Forrest Doty, Mady Wood, Courtney Cole, and Jason Besherse; Champion Tribble completed “To the Farm”, Kevin Harris finished Movement 2 and Hazel Day completed Alfred lesson book 1B.
The May recital is postponed.
Champion is working on perfect posture for piano exams, May 22. That was the goal this week for all students; the tp was for fun!
