This week I have been reviewing goals and celebrating student wins! I’m so proud of the hard work my students have put in all year, so I thought I’d share some of their achievements big and small.
K - Achieved all their Spring Semester goals! K Can now play with soft dynamics, and got comfortable playing second octave notes by performing a recital piece mainly in the second octave.
M - Has been working on vibrato this year, and finally feels comfortable enough to incorporate it into etudes and solos.
K and E - Got into the next level orchestra in Youth Symphony for the fall.
Y - Bought a new oboe which has enabled them to play with greater dynamic contrast, and a larger comfortable range.
S - Their Youth Orchestra conductor said they had great tone during rehearsal.
A - Plays oboe as a secondary instrument, and is able to play in tune most of the time in band.
And of course, I can’t forget the three graduating seniors this year who are attending San Jose State, UC Berkeley, and USC in the fall and all intend to play in large ensembles as non-majors.
We know how important it is that our students feel celebrated and recognized, it encourages them to continue practicing and participating. Reply and share your student’s achievements!
