We’ve been back to piano classes for a month now after our December break, and all of the students are well on their way to completing their “30 Piece Challenge”- in fact, seven have already completed 30 pieces and are closing in on the ultimate “40 Piece Challenge”! In the beginning of January, our studio-wide total for pieces learned was 432, and we’re going to be hitting the 500 mark soon. The Challenge ends in April, and the students will receive a music dog tag at the Spring Recital to commemorate their achievement. I’m in the process of scheduling our recital now, and hope to have approval from Monroeville Community Church for Sunday, June 7th.
Don’t be disappointed that the Ground Hog saw his shadow- remember, “6 weeks ’til Spring” means it really is right around the corner!
