Pupil Progress

Yesterday I spent the morning tidying my house. Seriously - cleaning properly - because I'd invited my private pupils to play a concert for their parents.

There were three who were up for it, so they each prepared a piece. I moved the piano into the frong room and set up chairs.

They performed really well! And the concert lasted about 20 minutes which is impressive if you conisider they're all beginners and each piece was around 1 min max long.

Anyway - they seemed to enjoy themselves and the parents looked very proud so I think it was worth the effort.

AK & Trav - it was one of the kids who asked when he could play in front of people. Although he actually just wanted to practise the trumpet with an audience.... which I pointed out wouldn't be the most fun ever for them.

Good for you. A recital. I bet the parents were proud.
