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
Arabesque---Debussy
L’Orage---Burgmuller

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 possible...it always is...lol. 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!!!!!!!!
