Now that’s a big cup!

Pictured are the 15 point gold cup and 75 point gold cup for National Federation of Music Clubs. I’ve only had students earn a 45 point cup. Can’t wait to get on track to earn the big ones. 90 point cup is the highest


Best of Federation Recital

Damon and Quinn were chosen this year to perform on the Best of Federation Recital, held March 26 at Bountiful Music.  I’m glad they were chosen to represent themselves and my studio.  The sunshine Kawai is definitely a surprise!  I know they were wowed with the many fabulous pieces that were chosen as well.  I always think it is a great idea to hear others perform and hear what others are doing to develop their talents.

Congratulations to Jill for earning her 45-point cup and Rachel for earning her 30-point cup.  It was a group effort from family and multiple teachers.

While the rating is not the reason why I have my students participate in solo festival of Federation, it is the performance experience that I value.  It does show persistence to earn gold cups when you consider it takes at least three years to earn one (15 points).  The 45-point cup is Jill’s third gold cup, and the 30-point cup is Rachel’s second.

The National Federation of Music Clubs Junior Pledge is inspiring.  Here it is:  I acknowledge my indebtedness to good music; I know that the music of a nation inspires of degrades; I realize that acquaintance with great music instills a love of that which brings courage and lofty ideals and tends toward clean, noble living.  I promise to do all in my power to make America truly musical.
