2016 Studio Recital

My studio recital this year was held in March, but I’m blogging about it today! I have lots of pictures to share. In this photo, I’m welcoming the audience to our 2016 Studio Recital.

Spring Recital Details

As I mentioned yesterday, our Spring Recital was Saturday!  Here’s how it went down: It was held at the local library.  They have an atrium with a Steinway baby grand piano.  In the past, I’ve always held recitals at churches (and once at a school).  I look for churches with grand pianos that can be […]
