First piano mini concert

Last Saturday, April and May music center held a mini concert for the Music for Little Mozarts students. Basically the students are from age 4 to age 6 only.

April wasn't in the group, but her music teacher would like her to experience the performance in a concert. She turned out to be the older in the group. Thus,  she was the steadiest performer, I reckon.
Since it wasn't a big group of students, the concert was held in their music school only. We were there rather early.
May and her peers were given a certificate of finishing her Book 1 Music for Little Mozarts .
Book 1 graduate students were required to play a song and perform a dance. May played Hot Cross Bun solo, and danced Feel the Beat on Your Feet in group. I could see that my 5 years old had a little bit of stage fright. Since this was her first concert, she was considered doing a good job.
April played Mary Had a Little Lamb calm and cool.

She danced with a 6 year-old peer in Catch the Rhythms and Barn Dance.

At the end of the concert, all the students who took part in the concert were given a set of McD Happy Meal.

p/s: May has learned piano for 6 months and April has learned piano for 3 months.

  3. Hello Sheoh Yan, Outstanding! Your girls are good....and I am always very happy to see, know parents let their daughters learn the piano or violin.

    Here in Canada, there's a National music contest open to all kids, below 17.
    And always, it's the Chinese kids from as young as 6, sweeping the main prizes, on their Beethoven, Mozart, Strauss renditions....

    Violin, piano....really heartwarming to see these 6 to 8 year's olds, Chinese girls and boys play solo on stage watched by thousands, as well on National TV.
    And many go on to get to learn under well known music teachers.
    If 17, they get scholarships to study music apart from other studies.

    Practically every Chinese home here has a piano too, new or used.
    Yes, Sheoh Yan...your kids got a great future.
    Best regards, you stay young and beautiful.
    Lee.
