Gracie’s piano recital

Gracie’s piano recital was last night.  She played Arkansas Traveler.  Each student also does a duet – either with the teacher or a parent/sibling. This year, Gracie did We Worship and Adore You with her teacher (thank goodness – I get so nervous when I have to do it!)

Here is a video of her performance ---


I’m so proud of her.  She has really excelled this past year.  She practices like a little trooper – we rarely have to remind her to practice.  And, in addition to her piano lessons, she has also added violin lessons to her schedule. 

Despite the fact that we were away for 10 days in Florida, and she was gone for 4 days with my parents (at the beach) – she almost placed in a practicing contest that her teacher was holding over the past 6 weeks!  (She did win a similar contest held by her violin instructor and was thrilled with $25 cash to take along to Disney World!)

That was awesome! She did really, really well. That sure did bring back memories. I played in a few recitals myself while growing up. I remember playing solos & duets with the teacher & I remember we had to curtsy at the end too. So fun to remember. Thanks for sharing this.

Hey Heidi! That was a wonderful recital performance by Gracie. She shows a lot of musicaility (understanding of the music). It must make you feel so proud, and good, to see her up there in front of the audience doing her thing. Tell her to keep up the great work (and attitude!)

That was truly a beautifully magnificent performance! Awesome job, Gracie. (I've seriously got tears in my eyes right now, can you believe it? I'm such a sap...) Looking forward to getting my future Gracie Strawser Piano Concerto autographed CD in the future! :)
