What exactly happens at our piano studio recital each May? Exactly what is it?
First, I will tell you what it is NOT:
It is not a stressful event for students.
It is not a performance where students must memorize their recital piece. (Although most students have theirs memorized.)
It is not a performance where students play a solo then sit for the rest of the evening.
Our piano recital IS:
An opportunity for students to demonstrate the musical growth that has taken place in piano for the year.
An opportunity to perform in front of a supportive audience.
The event where students play both a solo piece and as part of a small ensemble.
A time for younger students to demonstrate some singing games they have learned throughout the year.
A demonstration of older students playing along with younger students during the singing games.
A demonstration of cooperative learning between the age groups.
For the audience, our piano recital IS:
A varied program incorporating solo pieces, ensemble playing, and movement.
A fun evening!
Please join us for our annual piano recital to be held on Thursday, May 16, 7:00 p.m. at The DeQuincy United Methodist Church, 301 E. Center St. DeQuincy, LA.
