Studio Star Scholarship Results!!

The Studio Stars of the 2013-2014 school year have been decided (a little later than usual - I'm sorry!) and I'm happy to announce that the winners are Mary and Kabir!

Mary has proven herself committed to music this year by working very hard in lessons, flying through her newest Suzuki Book, and performing at a consistently high standard.  She has performed in every studio and department recital, participated in all competitions and festivals she has been eligible for as well as joining up with the Music Development program.  To recognize this achievement, Mary is being awarded 5% off tuition for the remainder of the school year as well as her choice for where she plays in the order of this year's studio recitals.  Congratulations Mary!

Kabir, this year's second place winner, has continually proven himself to be a committed student with a passion for music.  Because of his enthusiasm, careful preparation and maturity in taking on some of the responsibility for his musical assignments, Kabir is being awarded one free piano lesson in which he can choose anything he wants to work on at the piano.  Congratulations Kabir!

All of my students are eligible for these awards, which are given yearly.  Mary takes lessons in my home studio and at Sherwood, and Kabir 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!
