Cindy's Piano Studio Presents Twas the Night Before Christmas - a Silent Movie with Piano Accompaniment

On Saturday, December 6, 2014, Cindy's Piano Studio presented a unique experience for piano recital attendees.  The program began as usual with students playing Christmas music from the Nutcracker and familar Christmas carols.

Next came a video presentation of the Dawes sisters.  They played Fall Fun as a duet while several pictures of the girls were displayed on the big screen.

A brief intermission followed in which the audience helped themselves to flavored  popcorn and soda which was consumed during the silent movie which followed.

Students played Christmas carols as the silent movie, Twas the Night Before Christmas played on the big screen.  The movie was produced in 1905 and was fun to watch as well as listen to.

November's Student of the Month

Congratulations to Gloria for being chosen as November's Student of the Month. Gloria began piano lessons at Cindy's Piano in 2014; however, she has had two other teachers before me.  I hope to be her last. (big smile) 

Gloria plays very musically and enjoys piano lessons.  I interviewed her this week for our blog.

What do you like to do for fun?  Read.  She likes to read everything.
What’s your favorite toy? Not surprising but it's a book!  She also likes to sing and swing, even in winter.
What do you hate to do?  Get up in the morning.
What’s the best part of piano lessons? Gloria just likes to play piano.  She like playing songs at lessons and then again at home.
What's the worst part of piano lessons?  There is no bad part.  Yea!
What music are you listening to (that’s not piano lesson related)?  Christian pop artist, Jamie Grace One Song at a Time album.  "Just hand me my guitar and I'll play you a tune. One song at a time. doo doo doo doo".  Substitute piano for guitar and you've got Gloria!

So now you know a little more about Gloria, November's Student of the Month.
