First of all I have created an new email account, from which I will be sending all of my studio information. Please take note of the change and save that address in your address book. It is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Second tuition is due the first week of November.
Third The tentative date of the Christmas/Holiday Recital is Saturday December 19th 2009 at 11AM. Please put this down on your calendars. The recital will last approximately an hour and a half, followed by a short reception.
Fourth The University has a concert series called Sundays at Seven, that occurs sunday evenings at 7pm. This is a great opportunity to have your child hear University faculty pianists and other musicians. The concerts are free of charge, and take place in Libby Gardner Hall, which is located in Gardner Hall (the building just west of Kingsbury Hall in Presidents Circle) The concerts last approximately and hour and a half.
Sunday November 1st is piano faculty Jie Lu playing with clarinetist Robert Walzel.
Finally... I am participating in the NFMC (National Federation of Music Clubs) again this year. The solo event takes place on Saturday March 6th and 13th (your child would only play on one of these days.) It is not a competition, but is a festival that is designed to give students a performing opportunity and feedback from judges. Two of my students last year received gold cups or trophies. I feel that this is a wonderful opportunity. Please let me know if you would like your child to participate. I need to know by the week of November 1st, so that I can choose their solo pieces. (Your child and I choose one, and then pick a second piece from a list of required pieces) The official applications which I have to mail in are due December 15th. Enrollment in the festival is approximately $15.
Thank you again for all you do! Please do not hesitate to call or email me if you have questions.
