Student Recitals Are A Wrap!

Over 90 students performed in 5 recitals this past Saturday. Family and friends came to support as they presented their work over the semester. The rainy weather made it feel like Christmas and gave us a sense of accomplishment as we finish the year. We'd say that's a success! Check out some photos below:

Article of the month: how to overcome fear of failure

As we look to the new year, many of us will make resolutions. That may include setting new goals for health, skills, work, or relationships. However, it's no secret that many resolutions go unmet. We may even avoid making goals for fear that we will fail again. Here's a great article about how to reframe failure and use it to your advantage.

App of the Month: Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall

One of the fundamental ways to grow musically is to listen to music - a lot. Classical music will always be a standard of excellence that all other music looks up to and draws from. The Berlin Philharmonic have done something unprecedented - they record and stream their concerts with the highest quality audio/video possible. Then they've made their archive available on every device. You even listen live! It's not a free service, but occasionally they do have free concerts that are streamed.

Thanks for reading! See you next year!
