Our summer challenge was a great success! Our studio was challenged to memorize 100 pieces and we did it!! Every student (except 5) memorized at least one piece and we are celebrating this week with ice cream. Students who memorized the most are Madelyn Maney (22 pieces), Gianna Maney (13), Bridie Chapman (12), Harmony Bovard (10), Alex Jack and Evelynn Stewart (6 each).
We are starting Halloween Music this month for a program at Excelsior Nursing on October 30th. Also learning ear training this fall (it will say ET book 1 – 5 in assignment book).
The theme for the next essay is “Music is Inspiration.” This is a competition for piano students in Missouri in grades 7-12 with the winner earning $75. Past winners (Mackenzie and Genevieve) cannot participate. Start thinking.
No piano lessons on Monday, September 6th which is Labor Day.
