Well, the nerves have died down and the relief of another recital down has arrived! It was wonderful to see how well everyone did. I am so thankful to God for getting me through and strengthening each one of my students. All glory be to Him!
This was Jared's second recital. He played "Christopher Columbus" as a duet with me, and "Fairest Lord Jesus."
He was so scared. He told my mom, "I'm so nervous, even my nerves are nervous!"
|He made it through and was as cute as ever!|
Above is my newest student Faith. She has only been taking for a few months and has really been doing well.
I just love duets!
Kendra played "Hoe Down," "Tango Staccato," and "Give Me That Old Time Religion."
“Give me that, old time religion. It’s good enough for me!”
Okay, I have a funny story here. Rachel and Anna worked and worked on this duet and never once played it perfect for me. I was waiting for a disaster, but they pulled it off. The played it better than they ever had before. I was in utter shock. Why did I work so hard?
Rachel played, "Overture from the Opera Raymond," "A Little Prelude," (by: Bach) and "This Little Light of Mine," (duet with me).
Michael shocked me to pieces! He played better than he ever had for me. He likes being the comedian of the show and put a little act into his pieces. It was great!
I played two songs, as I mentioned in the last post. I am so grateful to God for the gift of every one of these students. Afterwards, it was like one huge party since most of the families know each other. We had a great time.
Parker, Drew, Justin, Michael, Julia. Jared, Kelly, Rachel, Kendra, Emilee, Faith, Anna, Emma, Kayla, Christopher, Daniel, and yours truly.
