Addy and me
It was my second year participating in the popular music festival Federation. Four of my students participated this year and all four scored in the top two categories. Good job girls! They all worked so hard! Congratulations to Addy and Sophia on receiving Excellent, and Mia and Alex for receiving Superior. I handed out their awards at the Spring Recital. Unfortunately two of them left before I could get pictures with them.
I decided to have my studio recital at Piano Gallery this year, since I had recently purchased a piano from them. It turned out so nicely! They recorded the performance, and gave me a DVD of the recital that I could copy and distribute to my students. Not only were they very accommodating, but the pianos were fantastic! Although I couldn't set up a refreshment table, I prepared goodie bags for my students with cookies, and piano pencils. My students did a fabulous job! Not one of them used their music! I was so proud of how hard each of my students worked, and was delighted with their performances! Unfortunately, my camera battery died and so I was not able to capture pictures of all of my students, but here are some of the pictures that I did get.

Ty surprised me by wearing a cape for his Star Wars performance! It was such a treat! Thank you again to those of you who emailed me pictures, and to all of my students for their hard work. Congratulations!

I can't believe another year has come and gone! To end a wonderful year, my students played in the second annual joint Holiday Recital. It has become a fun tradition that my friend Lindsey and I started. Lindsey and I first became friends when we took piano together as children, reconnected when we were undergraduates, and have been best friends ever since.

I am so proud of all of my students. They have accomplished so much in the past year. They are such a joy to teach, and are so talented.
I look forward to their progress in 2010.
Thank you again to all of the parents for your support!
