Shirts with collars for the young gentlemen (ties preferred); conservative dresses for the young ladies. Thank you for your cooperation! Each performer will need three copies of their songs with the measures numbered. Bring the copies to Competition. You give one copy to each judge. There is an $8.00 fee per song that helps to pay our judges. Please include with April or May tuition. Come early to warm up on the big piano and avoid the last second rush. Our Competitions are well attended but there will be seating for many visitors. So invite all your friends, neighbors, relatives—there will be lots of room and refreshments! Important Summer Changes: Please remember that there is no Group Theory in the Summer months of June-July-Aug.—so be very faithful to attend your group these months of April and May. Also, all Saturday students will be scheduled for weekday lessons in the summer-Violin lessons continue on Tuesdays with Jordanna Keller and Voice lessons with Mrs. Geiger! KinderKeys—our Preschool Musical Kindergarten for ages 3-4-5 will begin Thursday Sept.10th. Classes are limited so be sure to register now! Keyboard Adventures begins Thursday Sept. 10th at 5:00. Be sure to ask about this exciting group program for ages 5-6-7. This is our fun, interactive program for those younger children who are not quite ready for one-on-one individual lessons. 100 Day Challenge! Be sure to look in the April Piano Explorer Magazine for the names of those who completed the 100 and 200 day Challenge!! Summer is a time when great progress can be made at Piano with no school responsibilities. More practice time is available and young people need good ways to fill in free time. Plan on having fun at the piano this summer! Choose a challenging Competition piece as a project to motivate and occupy idle time. PIANO Guys!
