Stars of the week
Kristopher Schmalzer (International Music Institute) – Piano – Taught by Mr Ricardo
Kristopher finished his 2nd book for the My First Piano Adventure for Young Children Book Series. His note reading in the treble and bass clefs has improved so much, and he now knows where to position his hands on the piano without assistance from the teacher.
Aoife Stewart (Brighton College Al Ain) – Trumpet – Taught by Mr Wolfe
Aoife has shown huge amounts of progress over the 5 lessons she has had. Before these lessons she had barely touched the trumpet, so we have been working on building her tone quality and her understanding of notation. Over the course of the 5-weeks she has gone from learning extreme beginner music (one note per piece), to the point where last week we were looking at Grade 1 repertoire. Well done Aoife, keep up the hard work!
