Congratulations, Bryan! You Are October's Student of the Month

Yea for Bryan!  Bryan is a new student at Cindy's Piano Studio Bemus Point.  He moved here from Ohio where he took some piano lessons for about a year.  Here's his interview:

What do you like to do for fun?  Bryan likes to play with his new friends on the playground at recess.
What is your favorite toy?  He likes his baby jaguar stuffed animal.
What is the best part of piano lessons?  Being the Student of the Month!
9" Jaguar Cub Plush Stuffed Animal ToyWhat music are you listening to that's not piano related?  TV songs like Wild Krats where they explore the world. You can click on the link to see their website.

I look forward to hearing more from Bryan.

Emma's First End-of-Book Recital

Congratulations, Emma! You've finished your first End-of-Book recital! Emma played ten pieces from Hal Leonard's Piano Method Book One this past weekend.  Here is her program:

Skateboard Doodle (from memory)
My Best Friend (from memory)
Nobody Know the Trouble I'm In
Let Me Fly!
Pirates of the Sea
Trumpet Man (from memory)
Star Quest
Go for the Gold
Long, Long Ago (from memory)
Scottish Air (from memory)

We arranged her keyboard in her living room so it was just right. Mom had little lights decorating the piano and snacks for afterwards.  Emma's sister, Ida, her mom and dad, joined me in the living room as I introduced Emma.  She played her ten pieces and then I gave her her certificate of accomplishment and her new books.

It was an exciting evening for Emma and I!

Student Wall Completed

Student wall art has been added to the Bemus Point piano studio.  Pictures of current students will go on this wall.  The Student of the Month will go on the left.

It was really easy to put up the wall art.  I had Molly Brown's Signs design it for me.  It was inexpensive and looks great.

Other walls will be featured here later.
