Hope everyone is ready for some cooler fall weather!
It’s time to get ready for CIM’s winter recital. We encourage all of our students to join in the FUN! If you or your child would like to participate, let your teacher know that you want to play in the recital so during your lessons you can practice your chosen piece of music to perform, and if you like, have your teacher accompany you in the recital.
Recitals play an important part in the development of any musician. I am a big believer that to be a really great performer, you have to have consistent and gradual performance experience. In addition to consistent performance experience, you need to have a positive performance experience. Often, students are pushed to perform when they are not ready and this can lead to a negative performance experience. The effects of a negative experience can take years to undo.
All the teachers at the Institute stress that recitals are optional and a lot of fun. If you would like to perform or would like your child to perform in our winter recital, here’s how it works:
Talk to your teacher NOW if you would like to perform.
November 16th will be the deadline to sign up for the recital.
All teachers will sign up their students who have the desire and ability to perform in the December winter recital.
One of the many benefits of being an Institute student is that we host recitals every 6 months (June and December). When you perform at the recital, you really want to have something great prepared to play. It will make the recital experience a success for you that will enhance your development instead of impeding it. If you or your child is not quite ready to perform, don’t worry, there’s another recital right around the corner, no more than 6 months away. If you are interested, please talk to your teacher a.s.a.p.
I look forward to another great recital in December!
Celebrating Student Achievement
The Musical Ladder System®
The Conway Institute of Music is the only music school in the Arkansas that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests with the Musical Ladder System®. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!
