|I was amazed that they all got along on the piano bench.|
|Trying to get everyone to look was easier said than done. |

June 11, 2011 - I had my end-of-school piano recital and it turned out fabulous! Thanks (again) to Mina for hosting the deal! The kids did awesome! I am always so proud of them when they perform. I know how hard they worked and how scary it can be performing in front of people, but they all introduced themselves, played their songs, and bowed after it was all over. I really know how they feel because I actually performed "Homecoming" by John Schmidt after the rest of my students had performed. I didn't have as much time to practice as I would have liked, but it ended up pretty good. I realized it has been so long since I have performed a more challenging song, I am completely out of practice of that whole performing thing. I guess I will have to keep practicing and keep performing.
Sadly, 2 of my students were not able to attend the recital, so the picture is missing those beautiful faces. This was also sort of a farewell to a lot of my students. Many are not taking summer lessons and after the baby is born I decided to only take a few students back around October (if everything goes well). So, it was a bittersweet ending to the recital, but we all had a lot of fun! Here are 9 of my 11 beautiful students (plus Eve who had to be included in the pictures).
I love my students and piano!!
