It may be chilly outside, but I know you are all breaking into a sweat practicing for Gold Cup Festival, March 7! Right?
By this time, all students are working on their required and choice pieces. For some of you, this is your first Gold Cup Festival. As described in my book, Miss Nancy’s Piano Lessons, Gold Cup Festival not only provides an opportunity for students to play well learned pieces for a friendly judge but also rewards them with certificates and trophies. Please contact me if you need a copy of my book for further description.
The Gulf Coast Music Teachers have a website for more information on Gold Cup and other Festivals: gulfcoastmusicteachers.org
On this site, you can scroll down to Parent Letter and Directions to the event at San Jacinto Community College.
More news! This year I have added the Piano Pronto books to student repertoire. This is a new line of teaching books that has been acclaimed internationally. Jennifer Eklund, composer and publisher is in contact 24/7 with the public on her website, pianopronto.com where you can see how easy it is to review her music and hear audio samples.
I hope you all are having a bowl of warm soup and enjoying winter fun!
