Our December 2016 Recital

This December, we held our holiday recital at the Woodmont Country Clubhouse in Temple Terrace. All the students did such an excellent job–I was very proud! Among the pieces performed were holiday classics like Deck the Halls and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Other pieces included “Linus and Lucy” (the theme from Charlie Brown) and “All of Me” by the Piano Guys. We enjoyed cake, cookies and lemonade after the recital, and there was a chance for all the families to visit. Here’s to another enjoyable recital!

“Stephanie is a wonderful instructor who has a great way of connecting with the kids and making her classes both instructional and fun. My children have been learning piano with Stephanie for over a year now and they are thoroughly enjoying it. I highly recommend Stephanie for anyone who is looking for a well rounded piano experience, both theory and practice.”

“We love that she can come to our home! And she does a great job tuning in to each one of my kids individually…their learning styles and tastes, etc.. She is very kind and encouraging. Would highly recommend her!”

-Lina V.

 

“Stephanie Martin has taught our daughter piano for almost two years now. My daughter has provided me with the following feedback when asked what do you like about taking lessons from Stephanie: ‘She provides easy to understand step-by-step instructions, provides in-depth reviews/clear directions, makes me feel comfortable, and is always joyful and happy.’ We’ve seen incredible strides in our daughter’s musical abilities thanks to Stephanie. Stephanie Martin is a true musical professional and talent. We are very pleased with her services and dedication she provides our daughter. Stephanie provides a premium service, instructions, and is a model teacher. If all musical instructors were like Stephanie, we would have more kids embracing both music and piano.”

June Recital a Success

We completed our June recital a few weeks ago–every student did a beautiful job! I am so proud of their hard work and determination. A few highlights were “The Swan” by Saint-Saens, “Allentown” by Billy Joel, and “Knecht Rupert” by Schumann. All of my students have grown so much musically this school year; it was wonderful to see their efforts pay off! We held the recital at the Alafia Village assisted living center in Brandon, FL. The residents and families alike enjoyed cake and lemonade after the performance. Here’s to another school year completed! Below is our group of students.

Student Artwork

I am blessed to have some of the sweetest piano students in Tampa Bay! Here is a Valentine one of my adorable 5-year-old students made for me. This is what makes teaching such an incredible experience–the beautiful personalities of the children!

 

Recital Fun

Last December, we performed a Christmas recital at an assisted living center in Brandon. It was an enjoyable experience for everyone, including the residents! Here is the group of students who performed.

My students played an array of Christmas songs that were really enjoyable. We had a small group for this recital. However, the program for our upcoming spring recital includes around 25 students! My students are getting excited as they prepare some special pieces to share. I am so proud of their hard work and willingness to share their music with others!
