Our DVMTA events begin this month with Music Marathon on Saturday, October 22. I know my students are diligently practicing their pieces to make sure they shine at the performance. I’m excited that DVMTA students have the opportunity to perform at some great venues and to share their music with members of our community.
Don’t forget to take pictures and email them to Claire Westlake to boost our social media presence. If you post pictures of your studio on Facebook or Instagram, consider adding #dvmta and #rivertonpiano to support our piano supplier. For those students who can’t attend in-person, the virtual option is a great alternative.
Our next General Meeting will be the Cavalcade Music Read Through on Oct. 28th, 9:30 AM at The Music Store in Mesa. Registration for Cavalcade begins that day and goes until Nov. 18th. It’s always fun and helpful to play through the music together. Students just love playing duets, so start thinking about which students to put in Cavalcade.
Hopefully, all of our budding composers are finishing up their original compositions. The registration deadline for The Original Composition Festival is Oct. 28th. They can be turned in early or at the Cavalcade Read Through. These recitals are always so impressive and inspiring.
These events help our students become lifelong musicians. They help teachers to inspire, challenge, and encourage They are only possible because of our talented and hard-working Committee Chairmen and their committees. This is going to be a great year full of great opportunities for students and teachers. See you on Oct. 28th!
