It was a fun year in the studio! We started the year with Composer Elections, and in December, we had a practicing challenge. Brainy the octopus collected food for the food bank for every selection played 8 times during the week. Students have taken part in the Saskatoon Music Festival, RCM examinations, and studio events.
We had a variety of recitals, including students-only mini-recitals, a visit to a retirement home, and wrapped the year up with the spring recital. Everyone played well, and I enjoyed hearing the progress students made over the year.
We also collected food for the food bank at our spring recital. Thanks everyone who brought something.
I was involved in a some fun performances this year. I played with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra a few times. The Bugs Bunny at the Symphony concert was really neat. The music was tricky, but it was great playing along with cartoons. I also took part in the Klarinet Kerfuffle. It was a fun day with clarinettists of all ages taking part. I enjoyed getting to perform as well as teach a few clinics.
I’m looking forward to another fun year of music making come fall!
