Book 2 Grads | Book 1 | Book2 Book3 |Book 3 GradsBook4 | Book5 | High School Grads| Book6 |




In this section I would like to highlight the Book 2 graduates this year. As some of you know getting through the graduation process it quite the task. Along with pictures of the graduates I would like for students to email in a short paragraph about your experiences while completing your evaluations. Suggestions for practice, and highlights of your private solo recital. This should prove to be interesting and fun!                                     

So get those paragraphs in ASAP!
