A quick congratulations to all my students who performed in the Lake Washington School District middle school Solo/Ensemble last weekend. All had successful performances and came away from the event with a positive feeling, including two 6th graders performing for the first time. Thanks to the adjudicators for being encouraging and supportive! I was happy to be able to attend all the performances, and to play the piano accompaniments for all my flute students performing solos.
This week in lessons we reviewed the performances, which included going over what went well as well as what could be improved upon for future performances. And they can all put this into practice soon, as our studio recital is coming up!
Hi! My name is Mariya, and I teach flute and piano lessons in Redmond, WA and am a performing musician. Here I share thoughts about learning music and helping others learn how to play an instrument.
