Summer Theory FUN!

This year our summer workshops focused hard on theory. Students worked in their workbooks, played rhythm instruments and games and most of all enjoyed collaborating with each other and making music! I'm so proud of all they were able to accomplish during our time together.

A Walk on the Wild Side- Spring Recital

This year our studio theme was "A Walk on the Wild Side" a Piano Safari. Students worked hard on moving on the game board passing their safari animals. For every day they practiced they were able to move a space on the board. Every once in a while I might have given some bonus spaces. When they passed an animal they would accomplish a lab activity.

Keeping in line with our theme this year, students played animal pieces and wrote a poem that represented their animal. Their poem was printed in the recital program. I had also written several poems that would introduce that group of animals that students were representing before they performed.

Before the recital, students met for a rehearsal to go through the ins and outs of what they should do at the recital...


Recital Day! Everyone did great!

Can't have a recital without a PARTY!

We watched IMAX: Born to be Wild (an animal safari documentary), ate popcorn, played some games and ate yummy animal safari cupcakes.
