I just had two students present a short program of the Nutcracker.  They are beginning students and haven't learned to read music yet.  They played by letter names and rhythms only.  It was a fun project.

Humane Society Benefit Recital Plans Coming Together

Yea! Our benefit recital for Humane Society now has a place.  I paid the fee for the pavilion at Elery Park in Bemus Point.

Date:  Saturday, June 14, 2014
Time:  10a.m. - 11ish

Next step?  Pick the music for the students to learn.  We will be presenting a program of pop, rock, and movie music for one half and the second half is to be decided yet.

Humane Society Benefit Recital Update

I've got the Elery Park Shelter in Bemus Point as our place for the next benefit recital!  I'm waiting to hear from everyone as to whether the date of June 14th will work.  Such a busy time of the year and yet I don't want the students to miss out on showing everyone what they have learned this year and how they have progressed.

The Humane Society will be bringing two dogs and I'll be bringing Zack.  I wonder if my students would bring their pets too.  Could be a fun morning!
