Student Performance Video: Telemann Bourrée in a minor

 

I’ve started a youtube channel, and I’ll be working on a variety of music-related videos and tutorials to share over the coming weeks and months.

Here is my first upload – one of my young piano students performing at one of my studio recitals. It’s one of my favorite pieces… I adore pretty much anything Baroque!

Enjoy!

PERFORMED BY SAGAN WATT
AGE 11, 1 1/2 YEARS OF PIANO STUDY

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!

The Studio Heads Across the Country

 

Hi there.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted.  And I’m SO. SORRY.

But I have two really good excuses.  Really!  Reason-the-First is that the music studio has relocated all the way from Houston, Texas to Middle Tennessee!  We moved in February and have been quite busy unpacking boxes and looking for paired socks ever since.

It’s been great fun learning a new state and touring the gorgeous landscape in this part of the country.  I can’t wait to start a studio here and explore other music opportunities in the area.

But Reason-the-Second is even better!  Baby Bowman is due any day now! And THAT means I’ve been busy organizing onesies, reading baby care books, exercising, and stuffing my face with chocolate.  :]

I mean salad.

Needless to say, the combination of moving recovery + baby preparation has effectively minimized my time for writing on here.

I hope to get back on schedule soon…   But I probably won’t be able to be fully consistent again until a few weeks after the little man arrives.  Cause once he’s born, ain’t nothin’s gonna distract me from kissing’ those fat baby cheeks.   ALL. DAY. LONG.  <3

In the meantime, I hope to resume a light posting schedule on here.  There are lots of exciting things happening, and I can’t wait to share the fun.
