We had a lot of fun playing for the students at Norfeldt Elementary School yesterday! As part of their Classical Cafe series, we played a mixture of classical and holiday music. The quietest and most polite audience I’ve seen in a long time! Whomever says classical music is dead, has not seen the enamored faces of these kids seeing live music.
Congratulations to my student Max for being accepted into the High School Northern Regionals Festival on viola. It is very difficult to be accepted, let alone do it as a Freshman!
Congratulations Inter-El Students!
I am happy to say all students who prepared and auditioned for the Inter-El program in West Hartford this year have gained acceptance! Congratulations to: Nitzan, Owen, Priya, Nevo, Abby, Kayli and Julia!
Congratulations to Regional Audition Participants!
Congratulations to Max, Elijah and Jordan for practicing and taking part of the 2016 Northern Regional Auditions. A special congratulations to Max (West Hartford, Viola) for gaining acceptance into the 2016 Northern Regional Orchestra!
Amazing work on everyone’s part!
We Have a Home!
As many of you know we have been allowed to rent a space for the new studio. This comes after a few months of searching and a lot of extra sound proofing!
Since there is a lot of snow out there and the traffic lights in West Hartford can elongate travel time, please allow extra time to get to your first lesson.
Just some quick facts about the building:
-There is some waiting room outside the studio, but only about three chairs.
-The building is mostly used for therapy so try to be quiet when coming in for your lesson.
-Our entrance is not the front entrance. There are two side entrances, one with a stair case leading to a door and one on street level; ours is the street level one.
I’ll try to meet everyone in the parking lot or in the front to guide you in for the first lesson.
