Congratulations to Miss Emi Celeste! She passed all of her AIM II keyboard requirements in last week’s lesson. One of her pieces was Level IV – especially impressive!
Showcase videos are up! There are some seriously good student performances that you should check out: www.youtube.com/belcantostudios1. We weren’t able to get good recordings of everyone.

It’s always great to see your students performing on stage. Last weekend was no exception! Julia Baumer did an outstanding job in her second lead role, playing the iconic Mary Poppins in Woodscreek’s production of the musical.
