Hello Studio,

I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day celebrations. Wasn’t it a gorgeous day?!

The end of the semester/school year is quickly approaching and we have a lot coming up in the next few weeks. Attached is a calendar for June but I also wanted to outline the most important events. These events have been on the calendar since February. I hope you will make arrangements to attend.

Group will be held as normal on June 4th and 5th.

There is a Studio Dress Rehearsal, held at the LDS Belmont Chapel (15 Ledgewood Place), in the afternoon of Friday June 8th from 3:30-5pm. All of the groups will be playing on the recital (June 9th) and we need to practice in the space. The times will be determined by what pieces your child plays with the most advanced students staying the longest. Piano students will be invited to participate at the end of the day so they can get used to the piano.

The Studio Semester Recital is on June 9th at 11am. There has been some confusion about the time, but again, it has been on the calendar and posted on the website for some time. Students need to arrive 10-15 minutes early to get tuned and seated. As mentioned above there will be more group numbers on this recital and very few solos, keeping the length of the recital under an hour. Those performing solos will be notified this week at their lessons. (All piano students will be playing a solo.) Students will please wear black and/or white. As always, feel free to invite friends and family.

The Repertoire list for all students is as follows:

(The pieces you know you play. The pieces you don’t know you do not have to play.)

Twinkle Variations and Theme (with Independent fingers)

Lightly Row
Go Tell Aunt Rhody
Minuet 3
Chorus from Judas Maccabeus
Hunters’ Chorus

For Twinkle Groups only:

the Monkey Song
the Bread Song
Mississippi Hot Dog with walking fingers

The Final Group Class for Spring Semester 2012 will be held on Monday June 18th from 5-5:45pm and all students are invited to attend.
Summer Semester 2012 begins the following week. If you have not yet scheduled your times for summer please contact me as soon as possible so we can get you on the calendar.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

See you this week,
