Fall 2012 Recital

Our piano performers tonight:

There were 20 total performer, half being mine and the other half my mother's. Some of the pieces included: Schumann's "The Merry Farmer," Adele's "Someone Like You," "Victor's Solo" from Corpse Bride, "Bella's Lullaby" from Twilight, "A Funeral of a Marionette," and Macdowell's "Witches' Dance." Most of the other pieces were from various Halloween books.

There is a variety of ages, 5 to 30-something. Two of my students are very new and were welcomed warmly before playing their pieces at their first recital. They did great. I sat next to the youngest of the two, which seemed to make him more comfortable. He ended up needing my assistance a few times, but hey, he's only been taking lessons for almost 2 months!

I am very proud of their hard work. They only had about 6 weeks to learn these pieces. The funny (or not so funny) thing is that we are already starting to pick out our Winter/Christmas pieces. It's like Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas decorations being sold at stores during the same time. Their next recital will be held December 8th.
