Spring & Summer 2019 Newsletter

Dear piano families,

What a wonderful time it has been to witness each of my students, including your child, grow as musicians and individuals the last few months! Thank you for allowing me this privilege to get to know them and your families better. Please join me in briefly celebrating and highlighting some of the students achievements that happened in the last few months!

Student Achievements

I did not get a chance to snap pictures for every student with their certificate, but I wanted to recognize everyone who has learned 40 pieces since starting piano. Congratulations to Eamon, Ava, William J., Kaeden, Vienna, Violet, and Audrey for learning their first 40 pieces since starting piano (and since the last newsletter)!

Congratulations also to Allen for passing RCM Level 5 Practical and Theory exams, to Kenan for passing RCM Level 6 Practical and Theory exams, and to Alex for passing the Royal Conservatory of Music’s (RCM) Level 7 Practical and Theory exams. The RCM curriculum is incredibly strenuous — almost college-level in the higher levels — so I would like to especially applaud these three students for putting in extra hard work and applying themselves in preparing for their exams!
