As we begin a new year, we like to do a little reflecting on the old one.
three h.s. seniors off to university
In the Fall of 2020, we had three violin students of Ms. Elly's who graduated high school and went on to prestigious universities. All of the faculty and their fellow group class students miss them, but are also proud of the kind, smart, talented, funny (all of them!) adults they became. Congrats and best wishes to Arvind, Keagan, and Tristan!
Arvind Kalyan, currently studying Computer Science and Engineering at University of California, Los Angeles
Keagan Holmes, currently studying Robotics and Intelligent Systems, minoring in Computer Science at Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany
Tristan Cousin, currently studying multiple subjects at Franklin University, Lugano, Switzerland
Winter recitals 2020
December 6th, 2020 we had our final performances of the year. While it was a very different, and in some ways more challenging recital experience in 2020 making videos of our performances rather than playing live for an audience, there were advantages!
Pieces became extra polished from being able to re-record. Listening skills were enhanced from having to play with a piano accompaniment recording. Fun facts about each student were shown on their introduction slide. Family and friends from all over the world were able to watch with us and give positive feedback during the performances in the chat section.
Beautiful music was enjoyed by over 70 people at each Zoom showing of our Winter Recital videos, although not all are pictured here.
