Announcement: Valentine's Recital Feb 9th

A reminder that the Valentine's Recital is just around the corner! ♥
This year's Valentine's recital will take place on Feb 9th, Sunday, from 3:00-6:00 pm. For those families that will be attending one of our recitals for the first time, here's a quick rundown of facts:
- Recitals are optional, but highly encouraged!
- Any student is welcome to attend even if they are not performing. Watching one's peers successfully hop up on stage, perform and live to tell the tale can be inspiring to first-timers.
- Family and friends are encouraged to attend to support their performers.
Performers must register via the online calendar. The online calendar is accessed through the Parent Portal at www.funmusic4u.com. There is a $10 registration fee per performer, to help cover the rental costs of the venue.
- Recital fees are added to the next billing cycle. If you would prefer to pay cash, please give the funds to your teacher to hand in to me.
- The recital is held in the Sanctuary at our studio location, 4451 Dunsmore Ave.
- All of our recitals are potluck! Please bring something yummy to share. Holiday themed is great!
- Students may play any piece, but we ask that holiday themed pieces go with their respective holiday recital. :) So no Halloween music for Valentine's, etc.
- If you have any trouble registering, teachers may register your child on your behalf, or let me know by return email and I can do it for you.
The Valentine's Day Recital features personal messages from each teacher to each performing student, hidden in a red balloon with their name on it. After the recital (during the potluck), students find their balloon and pop it to get their special Valentine's message from their teacher. We also hand out blank Valentine's Cards to the students during sign-in so they can write a message to their teacher by the end of the recital. A little "attitude of gratitude" for the hard work the teachers do (they need encouragement too!).
We have recitals because it's good for students to have a goal with a time limit - because life is a series of goals with a time limit. Music recitals are a fun way to work towards a goal, and performing regularly builds confidence and invaluable communication skills. Since teachers have a very limited amount of time with each student, we do rely on parents to encourage their children to participate. You can be that they will ACE their first job interview if they have been performing in front of groups for years. :)
Please let me know if you have any questions!
