End of Term Piano Recitals - Important Stuff! :)

End of Term Piano Recitals

Dear Students and Parents:

Here we are nearing the end of Fall term already - time flies when you’re having fun and making music! Most of you have already signed up for a spot on one of my recitals.  If not, please see me!

Recital dates and times:

Sunday, December 9; 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Sunday, December 16; 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Community Music Center Auditorium (Main Floor)

I usually suggest that students arrive about 15 minutes early. If you are able, please bring something to share at the reception.  Cookies, crackers, cheese, fruit, veggies, juice, paper cups, plates and napkins are all welcome. Pianists do work up an appetite!  Students may dress in whatever they are comfortable wearing on stage.

I like the students to sit in the front two rows and family in the rest of the auditorium. You may bring family members, but keep in mind the auditorium only holds about 100 people comfortably.

Students may use sheet music. I sit on stage at the piano in case they need help. And please do not worry about making a mistake! Above all, do your best and enjoy - music is meant to be shared - performance is fun! But, if you are a bit nervous, that’s ok too. Just remember all the goodies after the recital! :)

Email me if you have any questions! :)

Looking for a piano?

I posted some information a few weeks ago about where to go and what to look for in a piano. In the meantime, Peggy from Classic Pianos called.  She told me if any of my students come in looking for a piano, and mention my name, she will give them a discount! 

Just wanted to pass that on to you.  Classic Pianos is at 3003 SE Milwaukie Ave (off of 12th and Powell.  Next door to Classic Pianos is Portland Music Company, which is a fun place to go and browse for sheet music.  They are very helpful and there is even a little piano in the back room if you want to try your music before you buy! :)
