Here’s what’s coming up as we move to recital!
April 21: Not an official studio event, but three of our musicians are playing their first trio gig at Friendship Village’s art show! It’s from 6 – 8pm and open to the public, so it would be great to go support them!
April 27 – May 1: no lessons as I will be gone.
May 4: New studio rates begin. Details were in your email; please let me know if you have any questions.
May 25: Memorial Day–will probably to reschedule Monday’s lessons to later in the week if possible. This will be the last week of our practice contest and we’ll make sure to add up points for music awards.
Week of June 1: recital rehearsals with piano. Schedule and payment details tbd but I am thinking of consolidating to one official practice day, with the option to schedule a second independently….open to thoughts on this!
June 6, 7 pm: Studio recital at Friendship Village! :)
Week of June 8: Summer lessons begin.
One other thing to be aware of is recital audition season. Elgin and Schaumburg youth orchestras both hold their auditions near the end of the school year; check the websites (linked on the sidebar) for exact dates. Those who participate in this can tell you it’s a really great learning experience, and I think fun too! I’ve been to concerts for both and they do a really nice job. In short–I really encourage each student to consider participating, and I am happy to help you prepare for the auditions. Most of the time the recital repertoire can easily serve for audition material as well.
