It’s a Wrap!

Sugar Beat has had another wonderful year with music and children both new and familiar. We relaunched our infant classes which were very successful, and fun for all involved. For the families who enrolled, thank you so much for making this precious class such a positive first experience for our little babies! My little Aisha has really been missing these classes over the summer.

The Orff classes again were full throughout the year. We did a simple version of Street Song this year, as well as a scattering of material from other cultures. The children had lots to show me–I even learned a new song from a student which was then performed on our own composed instrumental background! It is so nice for me to see the span of what the children can accomplish at each stage, from beginner to advanced. I am again so grateful for the participation from such musical families and children. Together we learned so much and had a great time doing it.

And so as to not leave out my beloved piano students, I must also mention that our two recitals were great fun. Kiwanis festival students did me proud, with several students making placements in the top 3 of their classes. Many students did exams this year also, some for the very first time. All passed with a minimum mark in the honours category, all the way up to first class honours with distinction. When I said “I am so proud of my students” at the end of this years spring recital, I truly meant it. This has been a wildly rewarding year. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication!

Have a great, relaxing remainder of summer and hope to see you in the fall. In the meantime, enjoy this clip of Keira rounding out our spring recital.
