We made it through another recital and what a wonderful job everyone did! I heard a lot of people enjoyed our surprises and thought the Surprise Symphony number was pretty neat! Certificates and little gifts were handed out last week during lessons, special medals were awarded during the recital for MYC graduates and those doing exams and if I were giving out another award this week it would be for Exceptional Effort and Enthusiasm! I guess we will settle for some ice cream instead! 😉
So this week is our final lesson week until September. It will be special, un-parented group lessons. We will be doing solo performances, rhythm drills and inventions, ensemble playing and improvising and a few games to review all that we’ve learned this year…..then we will wrap up with an ice cream treat and celebrate a year of exceptional and outstanding effort!
YEAR END MASTER CLASSES AND ICE CREAM WRAP UP
For those of you who haven’t had a chance to sign up yet for a group, I want to let you know that the Tuesday 6-7pm class is VERY full already with 13 signed up. There is still some room in Wednesday 6-7pm and Monday 6-7pm is very lonely right now with only 4 signed up!!!!!! So, if you were wondering which time to pick, know that there is still lots of room for you!
WHAT TO BRING:
I have peanut free ice cream and some peanut free toppings, but a potluck of toppings would be fun to share with each other so if you have a favorite ice cream topping you would like to share with the group, feel free to bring it along to share!
Also, remember to bring your book bag as you will need to play a solo and might want something to take your blossoms from the practice tree home in.
I hope you all are looking forward to a well-deserved summer break with lots of special plans! I am hoping to do a few things over the summer to freshen up our studio just a bit and am quite excited to get started! All the best this week to: Annaliese, Brayden, Delaney, Dexter, Jessica, Kira, Mary, Matthew and Ryan as they do their Conservatory exams!
Thank you again for such a wonderful year.
