I had my recital on the 21st. Only one student didn't show. I thought there would be more since every sport known to mankind had their big event on that very day. This was by far my most successful recital. A few students succumbed to nerves but all-in all they did well. Most students got their recital pieces in March so they had ample time to prepare. I also became pickier about details and nuance. It paid off. This was the program:
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Yankee Doodle— Traditional
Winnie The Pooh--Richard Sherman
Lullaby For A Puppy—Margaret Goldston
Pete, The Repeat Bird--- Nancy Faber
Un Petit Jazz--George Peter Tingley
Star Wars---John Williams
Throwing Pebbles in a Stream— Katherine Beard
BB’s Boogie –Billy Boyd
Colors of the Wind—Alan Menken
Be Our Guest—Alan Menken
My Heart Will Go On—James Horner
Fur Elise—Beethoven
Sparkling Brook-- Margaret Goldston
Prelude –Chopin
Linus and Lucy--Vince Guaraldi
The Sultan’s Caravan—Jane S. Bastien
The Entertainer-Scott Joplin
In The Hall of the Mountain King— Grieg
Waltz of the Bayou — Catherine Rollin
The Eye of the Storm— Robert Vandall
Sonatina in C--Clementi
Allegro Furioso—Skye Garcia
Moonlight Sonata—Beethoven
“A” Train-- Billy Strayhorn
Rusty Rag —Melody Bober
Blue Moon (duet) —Rodgers & Hart
Juba---Nathaniel Dett

I love reading other's programs. With recital over now, I had the piano tuner come to revamp my piano. I was told earlier I had dead strings - on the phone this guy said there's no way with a 22 yr old piano. He'd never seen it in his 30+ years or tuning. Well, he came and sure enough four strings were dead. That's always my luck....when someone tells me - it's not always However, he was wonderful, fixed the strings and my piano sounds brand new. Well worth the bux you have to fork out. It sounds like everyone's having a great recital this year and that makes me happy! I hope everyone doesn't disappear over the summer....I still have students and I'm addicted to this site so hopefully I'm not alone.

I'm addicted too!!! Just curious-is anyone taking lessons themselves this summer? I plan to take a month from my former teacher. Not so much repertoire for ME (although I may tackle a couple of things), but to discuss my students and his suggestions. He tells me he has used some materials this year that really appeal to boys. I'm definitely interested!!!!!!!!
