Annual Spring Recital

June 11, 2023

Another marvelous Recital performance by all my talented students.

It was a delightful Sunday afternoon. Proud parents and happy grandparents came to watch and marvel as their children displayed their talents and played the music they've learned this past year.

I want to thank all my students  for working and practicing diligently in order to polish their pieces.  I also want to thank all the parents for the effort of taking them to piano lessons every week and for giving their children all they support they need in furthering their music education.

A MasterClass in piano is a special class taught by someone who is an expert in a particular class of music. It fortifies and adds to the lessons that a student gets from his regular teacher. ORMTA holds MasterClasses on a regular basis for the benefit of students of ORMTA members.

I miss gathering my students together for some fun, like the photo above taken in December 2019.   I wish we could go back to normal when I could resume our traditional Christmas Party and Play In for my students.  So much fun with kids enjoying a Holiday get together where they can show off their piano skills to one another. That said, here is WISHING EVERYONE A VERY MERRY & BLESSED CHRISTMAS, and I hope everybody is staying safe.
