The Piano Whiz Kids studio is organizing a summer citywide music project called ENCORE for young pianists in the neighborhood. The project is for any young pianists age 8 – 16 at 3 performance levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
Three sets of repertoires will be provided for the young pianists to learn individually for 3 months, and practice via Zoom together during the summer. The repertoire is as follows:
- Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee
- Simple Gifts
- Clementi’s Sonatina in C Major (with accompaniment arrangement)
- Stars and Stripes Forever
- Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in g minor
Starting in June, the project will consist of ten online lessons, followed by a concert. These opportunities will be provided to the first 15 qualified inquiries.
- Lesson 1: Assessment of level and assignment of ensemble piece
- Lesson 2: Sight reading of repertoire assigned and ensemble skills
- Lessons 3 – 7 Learning and perfecting the performance of the repertoire assigned
- Lessons 8-10 Zoom sessions for ensemble rehearsals
- Fee for the program: $250 for 10 sessions. Payment via Zelle to 832-331-6851
At the end of summer, a worldwide virtual concert will be presented via Zoom. The concert will also be performed at a prestigious venue in Houston early Fall, with world renowned artists and Texas dignitaries presenting commemorative trophies to participating young pianists. This is a great way to introduce or re-introduce your children to the joy of ensemble music and be a part of a memorable project for summer 2020.
