Updated November Notes

The Virtual Recital is complete.  Students will receive their CDs beginning today, Nov. 13.  It was interesting to do this project.  Most of the students were more nervous during the recording process than they are when they play in a recital.  The CD begins with a Prelude by myself, then twenty one students, and ends with me again, this time I play Someone to Watch Over Me.  I will probably do this Virtual Recital once a year.

The Student of the Month for October is Kyle Emanuele. Kyle is in the sixth grade at Cornwall Middle School.  He is progressing very quickly and yet doesn’t sacrifice quality for speed.  Keep up the great job, Kyle.

 Christmas books have been added to my music list (named dolcemolto) on pianoatpepper.com.  The students will need to have these as soon as possible.  To find the books, go to pianoatpepper, then to music lists on the task bar, and key in dolcemolto for the list name.  There is no password required.  This will take you to the list of music I recommend.  Again, if you order from them, they do not charge shipping.  What a deal!

The Christmas Recital will be Saturday, December 15th at 9:30 am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Mt. Airy Road in New Windsor.  Invite your friends and extended family–there will be plenty of room for everyone. 

Thank you, everyone, for your efforts to be on time for lessons.  It makes everyone’s lessons go smoothly–thank you.  Also, for those of you concerned about the cold and flu season, I use disinfectant wipes on the keys if I even suspect a student has played the piano with a cold, and hand sanitizer is available in the restroom and its use encouraged. 

It’s Over the River and Through the Woods season again!  Listen for this tune this month.  Everyone will be playing it.

There will be no lessons November 22nd and 23rd in observance of Thanksgiving.  If you will not be attending lessons on Wednesday, November 21st, please call me.  Thank you.
