Studio Recital!

It’s Spring Recital time, and everyone is posting recital pictures!  Since I moved across the country 3 months ago and had a baby 1 month ago, my studio isn’t quite up and running yet – soon!  Still, I thought I’d join the fun and post some pictures from one of my past recitals.

I really love recital nights.  It’s satisfying to watch the students enjoy the results of their hours of practice and to see a semester of hard work draw to a close.   Not to mention visiting with all of the guests, meeting new friends, dressing up, and, well yes…  the food.  :)

It’s grand all around.

 Before recitals start, I usually find my students huddled in little groups, giving each other pep-talks.  It’s so sweet to see them interact this way.  Definitely makes a teacher smile inside.

Lacie Bowman Music Studio | Christmas Recital I always like to play a piece at the end of the program.   This recital Laura & I performed the Theme from Schindler’s List.

I really missed having a recital this semester.  Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things!
