You were all amazing and I am super proud of you!!
End of Year Piano Concert
At the end of the year (as the title implies) we have our annual concert. This year our concert was held at the Robina Community Centre. Every student who performed was presented with a trophy, which meant every student felt 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.
Congratulations to the following students who earned the achievement award this year: Mitchell, Sue, Lisa K, Lisa M, Bree M, Ella, Jasmin, Ben, Marie-Chandre, Summer, Asha, Sarah A, Beau, Damian, Angelina, Griffin and Zoe. Awesome work!!!
