We were so happy for Gigi... she and another student were invited to play the piano during the grand opening of her new school - The Sixth Grade Center. As the guests took their seats to hear the welcoming presentation by the principal, one of the school districts music teachers softly played the piano and then Gigi played Arabesque and In The Hall of The Mountain King. It was a wonderful acknowledgment of her hard work.
I hope experiences like this encourage her to continue to practice and play. She also successfully tried out for the Honor Choir. Her goal is to someday play the accompanying piano pieces for the choir. I look forward to that day... I love to listen to her play.
