Tomorrow, my students and I will be headed to the Massry Center for the Arts at the College of St. Rose for the annual NYSSMA Piano Festival. In case you’re not familiar, NYSSMA is an organization for music educators In New York State. Each spring, NYSSMA hosts a piano festival which gives school-age students the opportunity to be evaluated by a panel of expert musicians and music educators. Students receive a score based on their performance of a graded solo, scales, and sight reading ability. My students have been preparing for months and I can’t wait for them to finally show off all their hard work!
For now, we’ll keep calm and practice on. See you tomorrow at the beautiful Massry Center for the Arts!
