Holiday Recital at Brookdale, Assisted Living, Friendswood, Texas ❄️⛄️❄️

🎄🎶Oh what fun it was playing holiday music, including Christmas carols and the Dreidel Song, for the residents at Brookdale on December 7. Guest flutist, Donna Jerz, and I started the program with 2 movements from Suite Modale. Then, sleigh bells ringing, flute and piano led the group in singing Jingle Bells. Piano students continued the program by playing their favorite carols and songs from their repertoires. Kudos to our two Jazz Festival winners, Kyndsey Jones and Ereka Jayasekara, who received trophies. All students received their recital award composer statuettes. A Brookdale resident was the lucky winner of the beautiful pointsettia door prize.

Festive refreshments were were served after the program as we socialized with parents and residents to wrap up holiday cheer for all. 🎶

The New Year is just around the corner. Now is a good time to practice up and get ready for Gold Cup Festival on Saturday, March 7, 2015, at San Jacinto College, Pasadena, Texas.

May I recommend a very effective and challenging app to improve your sight reading skills? Flash Note Derby, of course!

A very Musical Happy New Year to all!
