Spring Recital Rehearsal

My apologies I did not get the date and time in last months newsletter regarding the recital rehearsal. As usual, it is the day before the recital:

Saturday, May 18 @ 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

I will not be serving lunch this year since Monroe does not have many food options for delivery. Thus, the rehearsal time is earlier than normal.

All students are expected to attend the rehearsal.

Extra Recital Coaching

I've decided to offer a free recital masterclass on Monday, May 13 @ 5:00 p.m.

Students are not required to attend. Those that do, however, will get some extra coaching on their pieces for the recital. A masterclass format is when all students watch each other's performances and are engaged in the coaching that is going on with the student at the piano. 

This is different from our recital rehearsal. During recital rehearsal, there is no "practicing" involved. Students are simply getting a chance to perform their pieces on the piano in the recital location.

If your student is struggling a bit still with their recital pieces, I strongly suggest you have them attend this masterclass.

The end time for the masterclass will depend on how many attend. At the moment I am thinking we will finish by 6:00.
Email Amy if you would like to attend this Free Masterclass

Summer Lessons

The decision has been made and I will be offering lessons in June and July (location still in the GBM building).

We will not be moving the studio until summer lessons are over at the end of July.

Please read the Summer lesson information even if you aren't planning on taking lessons.

Recommended TED-Talk

By loading kids with high expectations and micromanaging their lives at every turn, parents aren't actually helping. At least, that's how Julie Lythcott-Haims sees it. With passion and wry humor, the former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford makes the case for parents to stop defining their children's success via grades and test scores. Instead, she says, they should focus on providing the oldest idea of all: unconditional love.
