...for our Spring Recital!
Some semesters I have had up to 15 students myself, and I've always loved doing recitals! For the past year and a half or so, I've only been able to keep up lessons with my own bunch...so now Kamberlynne is teacher of a few others. Well, we got together with another talented guy who has some students, and between his students, Kamberlynne's students, and my students...I mean children (!)...we had a great recital with 14 participants! Below are my "fantastic five"!
Rebekah performing "Castle on a Cloud" from Les Mis!
Indy begins this next clip with his "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring", and hits it perfectly...on the repeat! I am impressed with how easily he travels across the nearly two octaves for the melody in the right hand!
Then Jonah joins Indy for their Great Balls of Fire" duet!
Jonah closes out this clip with his traditional Spanish dance, "The Maleguena"!
Christian's voice is developing nicely as we try and keep up with the changes! I love that he chose a vocal piece as well as a piano piece this time! Beginning with "The Impossible Dream", then playing "The Blue Danube" (again, thank goodness for repeats so you can make a few adjustments!)
Kamberlynne closes out your viewing pleasure with a contemporary piece that we all love to hear her play here at home! She continues to impress us all with her lovely piano talent, and would rather sit down and play for hours a day than do just about anything else! Here is John Schmidt's "Waterfall"!
There you go! As all of these cuties continue to develop these wonderful gifts, the greatest blessing of all is seeing them cultivate a love of music, and having those sweet sounds fill our home on a daily basis! Music has been such a blessing to my life, my hope is my own darlings will find the same joy and happiness it has brought to my own life throughout each day of their own!
(Wow...two posts in one day! I can't believe it!)
