Voice and piano student Rhiannon Mansur, age 13, studies with faculty member Jannatha Coffin. Rhiannon is from Charlton.  This is her third year of lessons at Pakachoag.

Rhiannon tells us:

What I like most about lessons is that I can focus on music and practice with someone telling me what I’m doing right or wrong.  The hardest part of music is memorizing my songs and practicing every night.  In the future, I want to be a singer and composer.  I want to make songs for games, and to make people happy with my music.  I feel the more I improve, the better chance I have to be a better composer for the years to come.  I hope one day I can touch people with my music.”

Dear Rhiannon, thanks for being our most recent featured student.  Did you know:  You already touch people with your music?  and you make us happy… with your music!  Thanks for singing for us and with us – and playing piano too.  Keep singing!  and working hard.  Sincerely, Sarah S. (Director)

Andrew Lefferts, of Oxford, will join Inna Muranik in a piano four-hands Brahms arrangement on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 4:00 pm

Andrew is seventeen years old and is the seventh of eight children, all of whom have studied piano with Inna.   The families enrollment at Pakachoag has spanned more than 20 years making the Lefferts the School’s longest enrolled family.  Andrew has taken lessons with Inna since he was six years old.

Andrew writes:  “I have not only benefited from Inna’s technical instruction and constructive critiques, but especially love to learn by listening to her play. Most importantly, Inna has taught me that mistakes can be perceived as something to learn from, and nothing can be done without diligent daily work”.

Andrew is a member of the Worcester Children’s Chorus, and has participated for several years in theory classes at Pakachoag.  He writes his own music which has included a few submissions for video game competitions and computer performed orchestral pieces, as well as music for solo piano.

Last summer Andrew participated in the Lyra Music Festival at Smith College.  His end of festival performance of Schubert’s fourth Impromptu earned him a review noting “the most satisfying performance of the afternoon, with proper attention to the many dynamic changes in this beautiful piece.” (The Daily Hampshire Gazette, Mark Morford).

Andrew plans to take a gap year in 2017-2018 while preparing to pursue music as a major in college.
