Congratulations to Britta who performed her Book Three recital at my house! I'm so proud of Britta and her beautiful playing. Book 4 here we come!
Last weekend Sondra Tamman was here from New York to give the Suzuki Piano Teachers Guild some teacher training and to give masterclasses to our students. We had two full days of music and fellowship and learning at my house. I was especially tickled when Beatrice got to play the Schumann A Minor Concerto on Doris's piano with her mom accompanying her on the Kawai. I also got to follow along in Doris's score, it was very special to see her notes in the score. Britta and Mary were selected to play master classes from our studio. Mary played the Daquin Cuckoo and Britta played Spiritoso. At the last minute there were openings and Calvin and Úna were able to get ideas from Sondra as well. Sondra worked with Dorothy Taubman for thirty years and specializes in helping students play musically with ease. Everyone took away inspiration and ideas.
Today I got the news that Ella and Matthew have been selected by audition to play at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek, for the Colorado Suzuki Institute Honors Recitals. Congrats to both of them for working hard to make beautiful vidoes to turn in. You can see their playing on my YouTube chanel.
