Here's Anna Zandvliet receiving her Silver Medal for achieving the highest mark in Grade 2 piano across Canada with the Canadian Conservatory of Music. Way to go Anna!
After months of searching, we are thrilled this beauty arrived today! A Yamaha U3 with a warm and rich tone. Satisfies both the pianist in Beth and the sound engineer in Mark.
Summer Sizzle here we come! Making our way to Yorkton, SK by air and jeep with these wonerful women from Ontario: Norine Broomhead, Marg Livermore, Beth Hamilton, Martha Hill Duncan, Debra Wanless, and Kathy Anderson. Beth will be presenting a workshop for music educators and will be working with 15 students in a group composition class.
Three proud teachers! June Recital shared with teachers Connie and Carol and over 50 students. We enjoyed solos, a mother-daughter duet, singing, original compositions, and poetry. Well done everyone! And below, Brennan at her first recital. She proudly played Boogie by Debra Wanless.
Well over a hundred pieces were performed at Canadian National Conservatory of Music performance exams in Montreal today. At one point I caught myself writing "you handeled with confidence". Handel-ed..! One tired and very happy examiner. Well done everyone.
One happy teacher with one happy double duo - that's two grand pianos played by two sets of siblings. This team played Somewhere Over the Rainbow arr. by Joanne Bender, a beautiful arrangement played beautifully :) Gold winning performance at Grey County Kiwanis Festival of Music. Well done!
Congratulations to student Anna Zandvliet for receiving the Canadian National Conservatory of Music Silver Medal for the highest mark in Grade 2 piano across Canada.
We LOVE playdoh! It's great for building dexterity and fun to roll & pat into new musical concepts like quarter notes and half notes.
