The Studio Stars of the 2012-2013 school year have been decided and I'm happy to announce that the winners are Eddie and Erica!
Eddie has proven to be a committed piano student by focusing his practice on that which will get him closer to his goal of giving his Suzuki Book 1 recital. He has proven himself able to take what we learn in lessons and improve on them at home and he has taken on this responsibility in a very mature way. This is going to be a great year in piano for Eddie! To recognize this achievement, Eddie is being awarded 5% off tuition for the remainder of the school year as well as his choice for where he plays in the order of this year's studio recitals. Congratulations Eddie!
Erica, this year's second place winner, has continually proven herself to be a committed student with a passion for music. Because of her careful and consistent work, she has shown herself to be a very musical and solid performer in competitions around Chicago and on stage. Erica is being awarded one free piano lesson in which she can choose anything she wants to work on at the piano. Congratulations Erica!
All of my students are eligible for these awards, which are given yearly. Eddie takes lessons in my home studio and Erica takes lessons at Sherwood, so if you see either of them in the studio or the hall, please congratulate them on the hard work they've put in this year!
