Hello WCS Families!
As hard as it is to believe, the majority of the Fall ’18 Semester is already behind us and Thanksgiving Break is now here! There will be no lessons the week of November 19 – 24, to allow students and their families time enjoy the holiday with family and friends. We hope you all enjoy a restful and joyful Thanksgiving Day and break!
That said, we hope students still find opportunity to take out their instruments and practice over break. I believe Dr. Suzuki was very serious when he said, “Only practice on the days you eat!” (Maybe we should practice extra on Thanksgiving!) Just like our bodies need daily attention to keep them healthy – eating well, exercising, brushing your teeth – so too do our talents and abilities need daily practice to keep them from diminishing!
When we return from break, we will have less than two weeks before our Fall Solo Recitals on December 9. Recitals will be scheduled for 2, 3:15, and 4:30 p.m in the KREW House at Chesterfield Presbyterian Church, 15037 Clayton Rd. If you have other activities the afternoon of December 9 and need to be placed on a particular recital, please let us know as soon as possible! Piano rehearsals with Ms. Parkin will be held in the week leading up to the recital (sign ups will be posted soon).
That is all for now, so until the week of November 26, enjoy your break and a very happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of our students and their families!
