Thank you all for your feedback on Holiday Recital dates. Since the majority of you agreed on Sunday, December 15th, we are making it official. Our recital will begin on Sunday, December 15 at 5:30 pm at Lansing Presbyterian Church, 2625 Ridge Road, Lansing, IL. Please invite your family and friends to come out and hear our current (and a couple of former) piano and vocal students perform lovely Holiday and non Holiday songs. Light refreshments will be served afterwards. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help out with programs, cups, plates, refreshments, etc.
Congrats to our student, Hunter, who is currently starring in his very first musical production. It’s not very often that you land the lead at your first audition, but Hunter did it! He is playing Gomez Addams this weekend at MHS auditorium. The shows are tonight at 7 tomorrow at 7 and Sunday at 2. Tickets are on sale at Munaud.org or at the door. We can’t wait to see it.
In honor of the May 4th anniversary of Star Wars, many of our piano students did a Star Wars music theory worksheet and played the Star Wars Theme. Below Adrian and Ms. Laura are playing the theme as a duet. Adrian has only been taking piano for a few months. He practices a lot, and it shows!
Several of our students performed recently. Two of our young pianists, 8 year old Iris and 8 year old Riley, played piano solos in their elementary school talent shows. They both did a great job. Below is Iris’ performance:
Our student, Brent, 12 years old, recently competed in a Fine Arts Festival in Lafayette, Indiana. Brent has been working on playing and singing at the same time which is always difficult, but so essential for a singer/pianist! He has been playing and singing at the same time practically since he began lessons. He is getting better everyday. Way to work Brent! Here is his performance:
As we said in our last post, students Hunter and Lydia both received “Gold” or 1st places at Issma recently. They both did a fantastic job especially considering it was the first time performing at ISSMA for both of them. They were nervous, but did fantastic. Here is Hunter in Indianapolis last Saturday singing “Still Wie Die Nacht”. Bravo!
Since piano and vocal student, Brent, was unable to perform at our Holiday Recital last week, we recorded him playing and singing “The Anthem” in our studio this week. We want to share this with all of you. Great job Brent!
