Year End Newsletter, Summer Piano Concert June 2014

Hello Lovely Parents and Students,
Another successful year of music study draws to a close! This one went by particularly fast for me, I suspect it’s partially because I have a two year old now who is always moving very fast. And I am moving fast all the time too trying to keep up with her, and so the weeks fly by.
Thank you so much for supporting and encouraging your child (or yourself!) as they experience the hard work and fun and reward of learning how to play the piano. Your participation directly affects the rate of their progress, as well as the quality of the teacher-student relationship that is so essential for productive learning.
Next week is the last week of regular lessons. For those of you who have not made arrangements, please let me know by June 28 if you plan to stop lessons, book summer lessons for July and August, or take a break until the fall and reserve your time slot via a non-refundable deposit postdated cheque for September.
Our summer concert takes place at 4:00pm Saturday June 21 at Mount Olivet Lutheran Church 1700 Mountain Highway, North Vancouver. Feel free to bring friends, family, grandparents – everyone is welcome. Please bring a plate of desserts or appetizers if you are attending. There will be only seven performers, but each student will be playing two pieces. After the concert please join me in the church santuary for some refreshments and a short reception. Church appropriate attire for performers, please.
