Hi, Students and Parents!
I am looking forward to our Spring Recital 2015 on
May 21, 6:30 pm, at the Friendswood Friends Church, 502 S. Friendswood Drive, Friendswood, Texas 77546
This year the attire will be semi formal to formal to make it a very special occasion. The recital is open to family and friends, and this year Friends Church members will be invited to add to our friendly audience. On the program will be piano solos, duets, violin solo, and flute performance by the students of Mrs. Donna Jerz. Awards will be presented, and refreshments will follow to top off our very special evening.
The Miller Outdoor Theatre will host the Houston Young Artist Concert (HYAC) at 100 Concert Drive, Houston, Texas, 77030, on June 30 and July 3, 11:00 am. For more information see milleroutdoortheater.com and hyac.org. Take advantage of these free programs to enrich your music education! I will be taking our grandson visiting from Pennsylvania, so I hope to see you there!
I am back to blogging after moving into a new place and studio!
Our May recital was our grand finale to the piano year, and almost everybody was able to be there on a Thursday night. This gave most students an opportunity to play their well rehearsed repertoire in front of a very friendly audience.
After the wedding of my daughter and reunion with friends and family, I have returned from Maryland and Pennsylvania ready to begin lessons in July. There are plans for a summer recital, to be announced at a later time . Want to brush up on theory, rhythm, note reading, and Festival Preparation? Summer is a perfect season to both maintain your repertoire and learn new pieces for upcoming festivals, like the Jazz Festival scheduled for November.
New educational free interactive piano apps are available now to make learning fun. Rhythm Cat is a popular app for your counting/rhythm skills. Piano Maestro and Music Tutor are good for sight-reading and rhythm. The Flashnote Derby app is available for androids for $2.99.
I look forward to seeing you soon for more piano fun!
