We celebrated St. Patrick Day with the Pops and Popcorn Recital this past Saturday! We had a great time! It was a repeat recital for a few and two new students first ever recital but they did so well! Unfortunately, I missed getting a picture of Lauren because we played a duet together and I didn’t think to hand the camera to someone else!
Students have so many opportunities to play and perform in my studio. Not only with my own recitals provided but through a group called Music Teachers Association. I am thankful for the Middlesex New London Music Teachers Chapter I have the privilege of being a part of. It allows me to collaborate with other local teachers and gives my own students a way to meet other students that are not apart of my studio. MTA has a wide range of programs to choose from throughout the year. I highly recommend every music teacher to get involved in their local MTNA chapter! It really helps to connect with other local teachers. Some whom I have learned so much from!
Here is a link where you can join the association and reap many benefits!
Sarai played the Sleeping Beauty Waltz by Tchaikovsky arranged by Faber.
Cole played When the Saints Go Marching In
Nevaeh played Appaloosa Pony by Martha Mier (this is also her piano festival piece!)
Karissa performed Marmalade Rag by Alfred
Evelynn chose to play Pirates of the North Sea by Faber
Aeyla played Rusty Old Bike by Faber
And Lauren and I played Pacabels Canon. It was her first recital ever as well as duet.
She did so wonderful!
I am proud of each student that participated! It is so good for them to have a chance to perform something fun and of their choice in a low key setting.
