Patriotic Piano Recital 2015
The number of students was down from years past, which was for the best while I struggled with a high maintenance Peter. Now that he is contented with life, I am looking forward to starting several new kids this fall.
I was really, really quite pleased with how everyone played.
Everyone, that is, except a couple of my children. You know how the cobbler's children have no shoes. Yeah, well, the piano teacher didn't teach her children very well.
Faith did a little better. There were some beautiful moments. She played "Roman Holiday" and "American Patrol".
Elinor is not technically one of my students any longer, as she has moved on to a more advanced teacher. She is thriving with Shari Aston, but she still wanted to play in my recital. And as I am exceedingly proud of her, I was happy to have her play. She chose "When Johnny Comes Marching Home".
Clark and Bethany claim that they were put on the program against their wishes. Bah! I don't believe it. They prepared this little ditty for the EFY talent show and I'm sorry (not really), but it needed to be shared elsewhere. Here they are playing "Demons" by Imagine Dragons.
