The last day of the year is a time to reflect on the achievements of the year gone by that have resulted from ‘the four Ps’ – patience, persistence, perseverance and practice! And as we reflect on these achievements we also look forward to 2019 and setting ourselves new goals and challenges.
There have been many achievements both small and large at Top Notes Music Studio throughout 2018, but I particularly want to highlight the following quiet achievers who have worked consistently throughout the year and made strides in developing their playing skills.
Grace Chen who has only been learning flute for five terms, successfully auditioned to move from Training Band to Intermediate Band at her primary school.
Caitlin Handel fulfilled a long held ambition to join the NSW Public Schools Milennium Marching Band. Caitlin will be working hard on her steps as well as memorising her flute music in 2019! We look forward to seeing Caitlin in the ANZAC Day Parade, and at the Schools Spectacular later in the year.
Ankhita Sekhar successfully auditioned to move from the Junior to the Senior Band after only one year at her high school. Well done Ankhita!
Hannah Wang (and her younger brother) were both successful at auditions on piano to
join the Junior Rising Stars program at Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2019. We look forward to hearing them perform in the Gala Concert at the end of Semester 1. Hannah is pictured here performing at a nursing home during her last school holidays.
And then of course there are all the students who undertook exams and participated in the Hills District Junior Music Festival this year.
Details of their successes can be found here.
Each one of you is to be commended for your hard work and putting yourselves on the line to develop your skills and achieve your goals.
Top Notes Music Studio is looking forward to another successful musical year in 2019!
