Today's piano students (7 of them) practiced well this week and most of them are either half memorized, completely memorized or finishing up learning a piece this week. In other words, they are all in good shape. The recital is about a month away so now we just hope they 'peak' at the right time. I'm thankful for the progress I am seeing and I am thankful to see all of the things we have been working on this year beginning to produce 'recital' fruit. I am also thankful for all of the parents who put in time helping their students practice these more 'tricky' pieces.
Tuesday update - My Tuesday kids also did fabulous tonight! I'm feeling better this week about recital pieces and I'm feeling encouraged by their progress. Once again the parents are playing a big role in assisting with practicing and none of us could do it without them!
