Rachel, Maggie, and Jillian performed at Daynes Music October 2. I didn’t get a chance to snap a picture of Rachel. They all performed well. The goal is to have little performances before the “big” event so you can be settled, comfortable, and able to see how you react with adrenaline. It takes time for a piece to simmer and that includes being in front of an audience. I wish I had these experiences growing up.
Rachel is playing Vandall’s Queen Anne’s Lace. Maggie is playing Mozart’s 12 Variations on “Ah, vous dirai je, Maman” K.300e (K.265) AKA Twinkle Star Variations. Jillian is playing the lilting second movement to Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.21 in C Major.
Erica came to her lesson this month and showed off her torn ACL! Not good for a soccer player. Not good for a pianist without a grand piano. When did my students get so tall?
