Thank you for a great year in Piano!

What a wonderful year of piano!  Thank you to all our students who worked hard all year and put on excellent performances at our annual Holiday Mini-recitals!  Please enjoy these photos from the mini-recitals.  At the end of this post, for your enjoyment we are including a sweet little video of an early-December rehearsal of our Dance of the Reed Flutes duet.  (We were unaware until midway through the piece that we had 3 little dancers helping us out!)

Our kitties were very much a part of our mini-recitals  this year!  Mystique made herself comfortable for each and every recital, in her “reserved” seat!

Mystie was also on hand after recitals in case anyone got cold and needed a warm kitty…

The seldom-seen Terre even made an appearance!

And how did we celebrate our week of excellent mini-recitals?  You guessed it!  Friday, December 18th, 2015 – Opening night of Star Wars: The Force Awakens – we were there – wearing Star Wars apparel, of course!  It will be a day long remembered….

And now, here’s a little video of us rehearsing Dance of the Reed Flutes.  We had helpers in making this a true ballet, but we didn’t even know it until we’d been playing for a while!  Enjoy!

We hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing holiday, and a happy New Year!
