Dear Parents and Students,
Please put these events on your calendar and plan to attend all that apply to you. I have purposely scheduled these events in advance so that all can attend.
These events are held to help students have an opportunity to perform their music. Unlike sports, which are played frequently in front of audiences, playing the piano is often a solitary event. To help your child gain the skills needed to concentrate in front of an audience, please supplement these performance opportunities by having your child perform for you, friends and family regularly.
The cost of these events is covered in your monthly tuition. Below the dates are further descriptions of each of the events.
*Recitals: Open to all students. (Optional for students 18 and older.) Recitals are a time to celebrate all that my students have accomplished. Students should dress as they would for church, or a wedding, (in other words, their best!) and invite many, many people to come hear how hard they have worked.
“Bella Point Holiday Recital”: Saturday, Dec. 14th, 2019, 10:00-11:15 a.m. (Previously known as Bridgton Health Care Center). Because of limited space, it would be helpful if students limited their guests to 4 (not including themselves.) Come prepared to share your Holiday recital piece along with your friendly smile for the residents. Students should arrive at 9:45 a.m.
“Holiday Recital”: Saturday, Dec. 21st, 2019, 2:00-4:00 p.m. Twitchell Memorial Chapel at Bridgton Academy: We will have our Holiday Recital with everyone’s favorite seasonal songs. Students should arrive between 1:30 and 1:45. If they wish to try the piano beforehand, they need to come between 1:00 and 1:30. Invite as many people as you possibly can!
“All Duets Spring Recital”: Saturday, May 30th, 2020, 2:00-4:00 p.m. Twitchell Memorial Chapel at Bridgton Academy: Each student will play at least 2 duets. In January or February, I will be pairing up students and assigning various duets. While I will do my best to pair students with other students who have back to back lessons and/or siblings, sometimes this isn’t workable and so some special rehearsals may need to be scheduled. This is an amazing time for everyone involved as any kind of collaboration in music is great fun! Students should arrive at the recital between 1:30 and 1:45. If they wish to try the piano beforehand, they need to come between 1:00 and 1:30.
*Afternoon of music for adult students
Adult students will play for one another informally at my studio. The days and times are to be announced. Open to anyone age 18 or older. Spouses and friends are welcome and if they play an instrument, they can share music also.
