Hi, everyone! Here’s some reminders for practice this week!


Good memory for note recognition! Keep singing the note names as you are playing it – you pick up the notes much faster that way. Have a great vacation in Florida! I’ll see you in the new year, and we’ll begin our 45 minute lesson!


Keep the tempo steady for “The Spy”. Remember to adjust your hands for the last page of that piece. Articulation for other pieces are coming along well. Have fun for recital! Recommended practice: 1hr / day


Good flow for Snowfall – it’s come a long way! Remember to have more dynamic contrast in your playing. Keep working on the other pieces and your scales. All the best for your recital! Recommended practice: 30mins / day


You’r picking up the songs in our new piano book very quickly! Well done! Keep working on them at home so that you remember them well when we meet for lessons!


Yay, we finished learning all the pieces in your piano book! Keep up the good practice at home. All the best for your recital! Recommended practice: 10mins / day


Well done for getting “Old Paint” in shape, and your being a good duet partner to your brother. You are very supportive and sensitive to his playing while keeping the musicality going in yours. All the best for your recital and practice those introductions! Recommended practice: 15mins / day


Upcoming performance: I’m one of the sopranos for the Exultate Chamber Singers and we will be having our festive concert next Friday evening! There are children and student ticket prices!

Friday December 8th at 8 PM

St. Thomas’s Anglican Church, 383 Huron Street, Toronto

A Cross-Canada Christmas includes music by Canadian composers from every province. Contrasting settings of “Hodie” by Willan and Telfer open the concert, and a range of English and French music for the season follows. The concert features singers’ stories of the holiday season and includes a carol sing with the audience participating. Organist Dan Bickle joins us.
