This post is a repeat from over a year ago – I need practice with Dropbox! At the time I couldn’t get the image on the post itself. Here it is as a PDF – hopefully, clickable, downloadable, and printable.
I’m giving my young students – the ones not doing exams – My Top 5 List – a list to be filled out by end of this month. I saw excitement in some eyes as soon as I handed it out this week. Some students have immediate favourites and tried to grab the pencil out of my hand to start filling it in.
The students are to choose their 5 favourite pieces from all the repertoire they’ve learned this year, then list them, and memorize or re-memorize them. My plan is to have them all play all 5 pieces at our final Performance Class, and choose 2 to play at the Final Recital.
