Piano on the Lawn: FortePiano Studio's 2022 Spring Recital

The recital went amazing! I've had a few people tell me it was their favorite format yet: outside, against the luminous greens of spring and a stunning mountain backdrop. Here are a few photo highlights:

What a beautiful September we've been having! With all the craziness in the world right now, I am so thankful for brilliant yellow leaves and luminous red sunsets.
We're into our third week of the Quest of Bach Challenge! So far students have learned (or are learning) a piece of their choice by Bach and listened to Brandenburg Concerto No. 3. This week: figuring out a song by ear that starts with a weak beat, a favorite compositional device of Bach's. Stay tuned for more updates!
Congrats Katalina, winner of the Summer Practice Challenge two years in a row!
On a separate note (ha), another student surprised me a couple weeks ago with an incredible creation he had worked on over the summer:
It's a miniature grand piano, made out of metal! The detailing of the strings and keys is extraordinary. Thanks for sharing, Charlie!
Coming up soon at FortePiano Studio: our annual piano parent workshop! More details to come next week. 😊
