End of the Year Thoughts
Reflection of the 2017-2018 year at the Eugene Piano Academy
As the music year is winding down, we at the Eugene Piano Academy would like to take some time to reflect on all the progress and growth all of our students have accomplished this past year. Some students have started from the very beginning knowing nothing about music and now can play piano with their right hand and left hand (even hands together!); some students returned from a long hiatus and started playing new challenging and fun music, returning to the recital stage once more; and some students kept up with their piano studies through the years at the academy and matured so much through their musical playing in general. We are so proud of everyone young and old for all of your accomplishments! Not only do we learn about music when playing an instrument, we also learn how to be better people and develop well rounded life skills along the way. Now that summer is approaching, don’t let your music making rest just yet! Consider taking some summer lessons or classes, but for sure return in the fall to continue your musical journey. Nothing makes your teacher prouder than seeing your personal growth as a musician and as a person blossom! Let’s finished the last weeks of the school year learning and making music together! BRAVO!
Below is a wonderful end-of-year letter to new music parents, and I think even current students could read, that really sums up our end of the year feelings quite well! Give it a read!
