Each week, TakeLessons students and teachers send us their shout outs. We’re thankful to be a part of this positive and thriving community, so we’d like to share these messages with you. Here are all of this week’s shout outs!
Kelvin L. in Bolingbrook, IL wrote, “My piano student Ty M. has made his first international audition at the Dulwich International Music Academy (DIMA) in Dulwich College Beijing! Congratulations Ty! We are so proud of you!” Great work, Ty!
Patricia D. in Washington, D.C. wrote, “I am giving a shout out to three of my students who have done an excellent job in mastering their piano skills. Hurray for Milena, Yaphet, and Delena.” Keep it up!
Deborah C. in Las Vegas, NV wrote, “Congratulations to Ace and Jordan on getting parts in Les Miz! You were selected from a large pool of talent and should be very proud. Have fun in the show and keep those voices in good shape.” Break a leg, guys!
Cheryl M. in Detroit, MI wrote, “I’d like to give my shout out for Colleen S., my voice student, for having competed in a music competition this past Friday, March 21st in Midland, Michigan. She received scores of 17’s and 18’s out of a possible 20 in the categories for breath control, musicianship, interpretation, intonation, diction and such. Her overall scores for her two selections were 88 and 85 respectively, out of a possible 100 for each. Colleen has been a REAL trooper and has perservered over these five weeks of instruction despite her challenging health issues and ongoing setbacks because of having had leukemia. Even now, she needs to have another hip replacement. She is a brave young woman that I pray will continue to study voice in the future! Way to go, girl!” Go Colleen! You’re amazing and we’d love to hear you sing!
Mike S. in Lehighton, PA wrote in with some good news about his own career! He said, “The Greater Lehigh Valley Music Association held its 15th Annual Lehigh Valley Music Awards presentation on Sunday, March 9th at the Musikfest Café in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Among the special Honoree recipients is veteran guitarist and bandleader Mike Stanley of Mike Stanley & Friends, who was recognized for over 25 years of entertaining in the region.” Congratulations Mike! We’re proud to have you on the team!
