piano recital

bailey had her piano recital last night. it was the last year of the 3 year course and
graduation.
the third year each child does an original composition.

they compose it entirely by
themselves and name it.
it was great to see lil' bailey
go up, introduce herself and
her piece then play it on the stage. what a little sweet-
heart!

she did a great job! she even
forgot the middle so she improvised and then brought it all home and ended on mi, re, do. what a champ.
at the end, miss shelle gave each of them a trophy! the 3rd pic she is looking down at it. i love the look on her face. she was thrilled to have her first very own trophy. she kept saying it over and over. she even told a nice lady
at mesa's frozen yogurt all about her 3 years of piano practicing she endured for that trophy. :)

we LOVE lets play music! it's a great 3 years of music and an awesome springboard for private
piano lessons! it truly does make musicians out of the kids!! shout out to my sister shelle who
is the mastermind behind it. :)

we can't wait for alex to start in the fall!

CONGATULATIONS to Bailey! What an amazing thing! Your very own musical composition at the age 7? WOW!! We have a budding Mozart here -- or would that be a budding Garrett?. Remember, I want you to play the piece for us when we come home in June.

I am in a bookclub with a bunch of girls who LOVE Lets Play Music (one of them even teaches it). They talk about it all the time! I can't wait until Powell's old enough to start!
