Our 3rd annual spring piano recital showcased the dedication of each student. The program comprised of nine piano solos and seven ensembles; four of these pieces were original compositions: Shooting Star (composed by a piano student), Spring Storm, Landing Point, and Faithful Sunset. Each student did a fabulous job, and I was so excited to see how far they had come in their music studies!
My brother and I have performed a piano/juggling entr'acte in the middle of the recital program for the last couple years, and it has become a spring recital tradition. Typically, my brother juggles while I play a ragtime piece on the piano; however, this year I knew we needed to change things up. So, we decided to switch...I would learn to juggle and my brother would learn a piece on the piano. This twist completely surprised my students and made for a memorable evening!
