We are a few short weeks away from our spring recital at Park Cities Baptist Church! Not only is this exciting because we present special awards to our students that they’ve earned over the school year (honor roll, theory test, 40 piece challenge, etc.), but it also marks the end of our first year as a business! Our students have been working hard on their recital pieces and we can’t wait to share them with family and friends on May 20th.
On top of finishing all of the planning and logistics, there is a lot going on in order to make sure our students are well prepared. Most students began learning their piece around spring break, so the priority at this point is for students to have their piece(s) memorized by May 10th. This gives them another week or so to polish it up and make sure its performance ready.
A great way to for students to be ultra prepared is to attend one of our recital prep classes. We have two class options: April 29th in the Park Cities area, and May 6th in Richardson. It’s limited to 8 students, and it gives them a chance to play their recital piece for a small group and receive feedback. Not only will these classes boost their confidence for recital day, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity to get to know some of our other students. It’s always fun to see students who meet at the prep class reunite at recital and cheer each other on! Just let your teacher know if you’d like to attend and we can sign you up!
We are so proud of all of the progress our students have made this year, and recital day is the perfect way to celebrate them. For us teachers, it’s an amazing time to reflect and think about where the student was on their musical journey back in September, and where they are now! We are also very grateful that you have chosen us to be your child’s piano or voice teacher- we know there are a lot of options out there for teachers and we are so thankful.
