Dear friends and families,
So much has been happening at Regina’s Music Studio that it’s been nearly impossible for me to set aside time to update the blog! Here’s what’s been going on. 🙂
We just had a very, very successful student recital! Almost all students performed, and we had a record # of attendees at the Steinway Gallery in Pasadena, CA. There were many first time new students who played wonderfully, as well as many veteran students who came and performed with drastic improvements. Ms. Andrea and I are so proud of all of you! We will have photos uploaded very, very soon.
So what’s next? Well, a few things…
- I am going to be on concert tour in Europe for the month, so all lessons will be taught by Ms. Andrea! I will be touring in Austria and Italy, in big cities like Vienna, Salzburg, Florence, Venice, and Padua. It is a very exciting time, and I can’t wait to share my performing adventures with all of you. 🙂 The schedule will remain the same for all of you, so don’t worry!
- I will be introducing a student corner soon, with journal entries from students from the studio. They will fill you in on their piano journeys and let you know how their adventure is going!
- I will begin featuring a student of the month. These are students that work exceptionally hard and show vast improvements. Here at RMS, where our youngest student is 3 and our oldest is 70, there are students from all walks of life who want to share their journey with you. 🙂
- Ms. Andrea and I are in the works of doing pop up concerts. This means that every few months, we will perform some repertoire we have been working on for the students, because we are looking to inspire and motivate you and your children. What better way than to have the instructors perform?
- I am working on setting up performance classes. What this means is that students can come into the studio once or twice a month to play for each other in a positive environment with constructive feedback and peer encouragement. It will have a casual, laid back atmosphere, and also provide an opportunity for the children to get to know one another.
- I am working on setting up ensemble classes. Piano can be such a lonely instrument, and I have brought up the idea of having students play in pairs or in groups with a few of you, and the general consensus is that it’s a great idea! We will be offering duet classes very soon, and trio classes after RMS gets an additional piano for the studio. 🙂
So there you have it, everyone! RMS is busy, busy, busy, but we are all setting out to do massive, wonderful things. Thank you for being part of the family!
