Federation 2010

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.

Spring Recital 2010

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!
