Congratulations Caroline!

Congratulations to Caroline for being my March 2014 student of the month.

Caroline began lessons in 2010 and is now playing Classical piano music. She also enjoys playing Baroque music on the studio harpsichord and will be performing in our Baroque Teahouse next month. She is in 4th grade at Jones Elementary. Caroline recently played “Vidia” in the Disney production of Peter Pan Jr. at Jones Elementary and she was wonderful!

Caroline has been working extra hard and and received several weeks of 5+1 bonus beads. She is playing her classical pieces very well and is excelling at her technical skills. She’s always prepared for her lessons and is a model student.

Caroline will have her photo on the wall of fame for the rest of the year and she will also receive a $10 Music & Arts gift card to spend on fun music or anything else she wants.

Want to be student of the Month? Here is what you have to do:

Have a lesson rating of 5 for each week of the month.

Have a positive attitude in lessons.

Joseph began a new lesson book last week and surprised me by offering to play the teacher part in the first duet. I offered him 3 bonus beads if he worked on it during the week at home and actually play it this week. Yesterday, he came to his lesson and played the entire part beautifully with the pedal AND the metronome! Great job Joseph!! You can play the teacher parts anytime you like!

Congratulations, Grace!

Grace is my very first member of the 2014 One Minute Club! She’s been working really hard at playing all 36 flashcards when given in random order in under 60 seconds three times consecutively– and she did it! Grace was admitted to the club with scores of 57, 54, and 53 seconds.

One Minute Club members will enter into their own contest to see who can get the lowest score- the winner will receive their very own Bonus Game Day and another very special prize.
