Summer Adult Recital, August 2nd, 2014http://vamusiclessons.com/blog/21-summer-adult-recital,-august-2nd,-2014.htmlhttp://vamusiclessons.com/blog/21-summer-adult-recital,-august-2nd,-2014.html

Summer Adult Recital, August 2nd, 2014

Every year we try to have two adult recitals – Winter and Summer. This summer we got together at Lori’s house and had a wonderful time, as always, sharing beautiful music. Each adult student played one song that they had learned over the previous three months. Everyone did an amazing job! Of course, it was not perfect, there were a few mistakes here and there... But, what's important is that everyone worked so hard to play beautifully and let me tell you, not too many of them like to play in front of an audience When I see my adult students perform and grow every year, it makes my job more satisfying and I want to teach even more!
