Hi Students and Parents,
It feels great to dust off the old blog! I think we’re off to a great fall.
For those of you entering the Mary West Competition, please remember that the postmark deadline for your application is Oct. 2. The form can be downloaded from www.MNSOTA.org, or you can make a copy from mine at the house. My ASTA ID number is 31169.
Claudia is unable to play for the competition and October performance class. We are very happy that Kerri Lejeune has agreed to play with all of you for the competition and our performance class on Sat., Oct. 24., at 10 a.m. She would like you to email her as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to rehearse with her alone once in the week of Oct. 19. Please ask her about getting the piano music to her. Directions to her house are on her website: www.ensemblepianist.com Her phone number is 763-785-9007
As always, I will cover the pianist’s time for the work you do here at the house for class, and she will handle her fees for private rehearsals and the competition with you directly.
Meriel and Anna are not meeting with Claudia yet and won’t be in the Mary West, but you’ll perform in class each month with the others. Details when I see you.
Here are two more class dates : Dec. 5 and Jan. 9 at 10 a.m.
Our class recital will be Jan. 10, time TBA
Happy practicing (now!)
