PakRec-5-15-16-600pix-AW1_1800_optThis month we congratulate piano student Matthew of Shrewsbury.  Matthew was awarded a “Ten -Years of Music Lessons Milestone Certificate” at our May 2016 student recital.

For our May recital,  Matthew played Bagatelle Op. 110, No. 3 by Beethoven and a lovely rendition of Poetic Tune Picture by Grieg.

The photo is from the end of our Sunday recital session one, when Matthew’s teacher Inna Muravnik shared her reflections on Matthew’s commitment and progress as we presented his certificate.

You can hear Matthew’s performance here.

Matt shares:

Pakachoag Music School has provided me with a positive learning environment, where students are taught not only how to play an instrument, but learn the art of performing.  It has allowed me to explore the intricacies of playing the piano, and has also allowed me to express myself through different genres of music.  Being a member of the school for 10 years has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, and given me a talent that I know I can use for many years to come.

Dear Matthew,

We are thrilled to know that this has been such a great experience for you.  We commend you on sticking with it, and with balancing music alongside your other priorities like playing golf and keeping up good grades.  We look forward to hearing your latest, new pieces at future performance classes and recitals.

Sincerely,

Sarah Smongeski and the Pakachoag Faculty
