Post-festival news

It’s been a fun month in the studio.  Music festival was last week, and I enjoyed getting the chance to see performances from students from many studios across the city.  My other favorite part of festival is seeing the adjudicators in action.  Hearing teachers from other parts of Canada is really interesting.

Festival is also great preparation for some of the upcoming musical activities, such as recitals and music exams.  It gives students a chance to play their pieces multiple times.  They also get feedback from the teachers as well as having a chance to hear other students their age.  Students may hear new pieces, which is great as we near the end of the term – something fresh can be motivating.

I look forward to seeing everyone’s hard work at the studio recital Saturday.  Happy music making!
