I'll be having a summer recital in June, but I decided it best to start arranging pieces sooner this time around so all the kids have ample time to learn their pieces. (There was kind of a mad scramble at Christmas...) This recital will be my smallest yet (with only 8 students) since I've had a few kids drop for economic reasons and I have decided not to fill their spaces. So far I've arranged the song Popular (from Wicked) to a 2B/3A level and the song Masquerade (from Phantom of the Opera) to a level 1. My other kids are having a hard time deciding what to play since I leave it up to them. The theme this time is "Shows". That could include Broadway plays, TV shows, or movies.
I haven't decided if I'll play again this time. It's really hard to practice because Dean still protests my piano practicing while he's awake (insisting that he play instead...or that I do something else with him), and the house is just too small to practice when he's asleep. Definitely something I am taking into consideration the next time we buy a home!!!
