Wow. Wow. Wow. I could not be more proud of all my students. Sunday’s recital ran so smoothly, and they all did a fantastic job. They put me to shame, as it was me that kept making booboos in the duets! LOL (sorry kids!!)
We had a range of abilities, from two of my students having only had six lessons, to students who started with me when I started teaching 2 1/2 terms ago, to my own children who have learned for a couple of years. We had two preschoolers, one played and one sang a song with me, which was just adorable. Then we ended with a rhythm group, which was different and fun.
Here’s some pictures taken on the day. I still need to have a play with the video, but I will upload a few performances soon!
We had a great turn out of parents and grandparents, and a few friends came along too. The support and comments from them towards myself and the students was so lovely. I think everyone really enjoyed it!
I was a bundle of nerves before we started. It was the public speaking that goes along with hosting a recital that was getting to me! But once we got started, I was so excited to be introducing the next performer my nerves disappeared and I just enjoyed it! Watching these kids perform, as their teacher, was seriously the best thing. I know all the trouble spots in their pieces, and to see them play through them sooooo well, and the proud smiles as they stood up to bow…. I now know this is the right job for me. Loving it ?
