If you can believe it, we are on the final stretch to Christmas! There will be two Christmas Recitals again this year: December 9th (Saturday) at 3:00 and 4:00 pm, at St. Andrews Anglican Church at 4619 Lakeshore Road. Students will be randomly divided between the two recitals; if you have a preference for time, please let me know, as I can easily accommodate you! This recital is more formal, so students are asked to wear ‘nice’ clothing (no jeans/rips/tears), and memorization of pieces to be performed is expected.
Also upcoming is the Canada Music Week Concert – November 12th at 1:00 pm, at the Rotary Centre. Students who have won the composing contest will be performing their pieces, alongside other students of the music school who have prepared music by Canadian composers. If you are interested in hearing what Canada has to offer the classical world, I recommend you check it out!
Christmas Ensembles will be December 18-21st, in the Performance Studio at the music school. This ensemble classes take the place of your regularly scheduled lesson that week; sign up sheets to choose your preferred time and day will be up at the beginning of December. All piano students will be taking part in the ensemble classes. Unfortunately, there are no voice ensemble classes yet, so voice students will still have a lesson that week! There may be some rescheduling to do with those lessons as I teach the ensemble classes as well, so I will keep in touch regarding the last week of lessons before Christmas break!
Christmas Break: December 23-January 7th! Sunday students will end lessons on December 10th (because Dec.17 will be spent at Christmas ensembles!), and will resume January 7th – the last day of holidays.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns; my number is 250-575-7530, and my email is email@example.com.
Warm wishes to everyone as you start to get into the Christmas spirit!
