Katelin has completed Piano Pronto’s Movement 2 book and has chosen “Mosaics” and Masterworks book 4. Congratulations, Katelin on this fine achievement!
Forrest completed two books in his piano lesson today! “Rock On”, and he chose “Rock On book 3” and “Full Speed Ahead!” Congratulations to Forrest for making Middle School Jazz Band piano player also! So proud of your accomplishments Forrest!
Forrest has completed “Star Wars” and is starting “Queen”. Great job, Forrest.
Last week’s challenge was speed reading and the results were very close. Many students were under 30 seconds with Forrest, Jason and Mackenzie under 20 seconds. Mackenzie was 13 seconds and 59/100 beating Jason who had 13 seconds and 94/100! Great job students. (The bass clef notes slowed some down.)
Last week we worked on dynamics and articulation by putting together eight Christmas trees. The tree in the center illustrates “pianissimo” for the trunk, the English words “very soft” for the middle and the star at the top is the symbol “pp”. Forrest was the fastest at putting them all together in 20 seconds, beating Della by one second! He can also play pieces fast and lively!
Maddy earned first place in the November worksheets with every week perfect! In the practice challenge for the month, called Pianovember, Maddy is in ninth place among students from all over and practiced 755 songs in the month. She did the most of all my students. Great job, Maddy!
In the Pianovember challenge, Cheryl’s screen name is Lolalynn. She practiced 710 pages during November and earned 11th place out of 124 students! We are so proud of you Cheryl.
