At the beautiful Elks Lodge by the Sound in Westbrook, CT

The topic "Solid Beginnings" will encompass piano, voice, strings, and jazz, with suggestions how to get your students off on the right foot. The major events will begin with a panel discussion on setting the foundations for development of technique, musicianship, right attitude, creativity, and strategies for effective practice.

Presenters include:

In conjunction with the topic of the day, there will be a short recital by Anna Han, age 12.

She is a student of Fei Xu, and began lessons with him when she was 5 years old. There will also be a performance by Marianna Prjevalska, our 2008 Collegiate Winner, and a performance of this year's CSMTA Commissioned Work.
