End Of Term Piano Lessons Newsletter May 2013

Hello Lovely Parents and Students,
It’s that wonderful time of year again! Here is the info for our upcoming Summer Piano Recital. Please RSVP to me regarding your child’s attendance. Church appropriate attire please. Cameras are welcome. No problem if your child changes their mind about playing once they get there. This is a performance opportunity, not an obligation.

Sunday June 23rd, 2013 at 3pm
St. Catherine’s Anglican Church in Edgemont Village.

Please feel free to invite your family and friends.
St. Catherine’s Anglican Church is located at 1058 Ridgewood Dr (just off of Highlands Blvd) in North Vancouver. There is no street parking in front of the church, but ample parking in the back lot. Please have a look at the directions on how to access the parking lot: http://saint-catherines.org/HTML/2010/2010-05-18%20Map.html

Also, if you are able, please bring a small dessert or appetizer to share for the reception afterwards.

Make-Up Lessons and Summer Schedule:
I am teaching regular lessons for the first 3 weeks of June, and then teaching make-up lessons at the normal lesson time for the last week of June. If you have had cancellations and would like a make-up lesson, please contact me to arrange it.
I will be teaching during July and August. Please let me know if you would like to arrange some summer lessons. In my experience, 3 or 4 lessons over the summer go a long way in helping students retain the piano skills they have gained during the school year and definitely prevent the strange affliction of “piano amnesia” which rears its ugly head for September and most of October. I also find that with the more relaxed pace of life in the summer, and with the blessing of fewer competing activities, students often make excellent progress and expand their repertoire considerably. Plus, you always have an answer for “I’m bored”. Why, you can practice your piano a little bit, dear;)

Thank you all very very much for a great year of music study! Looking forward to seeing you at the concert.
Cheerio,
Alison
