Talia from our summer production of "Snow White" made this lovely sign for me.
I have mentioned several times that I absolutely LOVE homemade gifts from my students. They mean the world to me. I love drawings, crafts, notes, compositions, and even messages. They make my day. So, in appreciation of all these tokens, I've decided to post some pictures here on my blog of some fairly recent art given to me.
Well, I think its safe to say that we have made it through back to school season. Whew! That was difficult. I have several new students so if I haven't said so before, Welcome! I'm so glad to have you be a part of our studio. Back to school season is so much fun for me as I get to see my returning students excited for school, and I get to meet new students! I have about 30 full time students, and I am happy to say I am nearly full! Mark your calenders our first studio get together is October 13th. For those of you new to the studio, this is a get together amongst students. We play for each other, play a couple games and have homemade snacks :)
Additionally, Sound of Music rehearsals are in full swing. Performances are Oct 18-21. I hope to be able to get a couple recordings to post on here. So, be sure to check back later.
In the meantime, I finally got a couple recordings uploaded to YouTube.
This is an excellent recording of Ivy Chapel's Ladies' Ensemble performing a lovely arrangement of Jacob's Ladder.
One of our many talented members at Ivy Chapel, Earl Kreder, collaborated with me on this spunky version of the classic hymn, Praise to the Lord.
Finally, we have another recording of the ever lovely, Marsha Fix, performing C. Francks timeless O Lord Most Holy.
I hope that you have enjoyed this round of recordings. Please check back for more piano fun!
