We are heading into the home stretch for the year. This Fall has just raced by. Practice has officially started for our Christmas Recital. We love this time of year, kids playing favourite carols and holiday songs. They are practicing their hearts out to make a great impression at the recital.
The Bluewater non-competitive Festival is also quickly approaching. Deadline to enter is December 1,2013. If you haven’t heard about this yet, be sure to ask your music teacher what it is. You are invited to play a piece of your choice and an adjudicator will share some ideas and tips with you. You will receive a beautiful certificate of participation after you play. Although sometimes nerve-wracking, playing for an audience will help with self confidence, and encourage young and old to get out of their comfort zones and personally tackle something new. It is amazing to watch the change over the years, as the students continue to enter festivals, play for recitals and eventually some even become performers. Kudos to all of you for helping and encouraging your students to try something “a bit scary”.
