Bi-annual Pupil Concerts
Twice a year, pupils, both adults and children gather at my house for a concert followed by tea and cakes. This event is very popular, great fun and a wonderful chance for pupils to work on a few pieces to perform to their family and peers. They also have the chance to hear me play which I believe is important. Pieces are performed with piano or CD accompaniment and I often play duets with pupils too. It is a great opportunity to focus on perfecting pieces, especially in between exams, and pupils often feel a strong sense of achievement.
One young pupil on returning home remarked, "When is the next one?!"
