Yamaha Keyboard Festival
We had a wonderful time at the Yamaha Keyboard Festivals held on the Gold Coast and Cleveland. The talented students who took part were: Marie-Chandre, Beau, Asha, Summer, Aakash, Henry, Akshay, Limi, Rohan, Lauren, Zoe, Ben, Sienna, Sarah A, Lisa K, Jasmin, Griffin, Damian, Keith, Bree M, Angelina, Carl, Ella, Lisa M and Bree W.
We were very lucky to have 3 awesome performers selected to perform in the prestigious State Gala held in the Queen Street Mall in Brisbane on the 15th of October!! Congratulations to Bree W who performed Blue Samba by Glen Carter-Varney, Angelina who performed her own arrangement of Cry Me a River, and Lisa M who performed 1000 Years by Christina Perri. You were all amazing and I am super proud of you!!
Even more exams
Lisa K sat her Preliminary Grade exam in July, and she gained an A with Honours!!
We also have some more AMEB theory exams to come – which are actually more fun than it sounds!! In November we have our practical piano exams with SCSM where students are sitting grades from Beginner Grade, to advanced students sitting their Teaching Certificates. I am sure the examiner will enjoy all that variety!!
End of Year Piano Concerts
At the end of the year (as the title implies) we have our annual concert. This year our concert will be held at the Robina Community Centre. Every student who performs is presented with a trophy, which means every student feels appreciated, validated, and successful!
The concerts are also presentation days, where students are presented other awards they may have earned throughout the year. These include trophies for piano exams and plaques for theory exams. We also have an ‘Achievement Award Challenge’ for students who have been with the studio for at least a year. Every student who completes the set tasks in the challenge, receives an achievement award trophy. The amount of tasks you complete will determine the size of the trophy you receive.
