    Year-End: What I Love About Music

    Yamaha students performed in 2 year-end recitals on Sunday, June 13 at the London Convention Centre. Performances ranged from solo piano, guitar, and voice numbers, to multi-instrument ensembles featuring original compositions by students!

    Several video vignettes were broadcast throughout the show to ease the transition between performances.

    Congratulations to everyone for a super awesome show!

    Vanessa to perform original composition in BC

    Advanced Yamaha student Vanessa Tran has been selected to perform her original composition entitled “Stepping to the Beats” in the National Junior Original Concert, to be held in British Columbia, this fall.

    The piece, which was inspired by disco/dance music, will feature Vanessa on grand piano, accompanied by her instructor, Mr. Andrew, on Electone. Yamaha Course Supervisor Mr. Tom Duffin, has helped as a consultant on the piece.

    This year’s audience will include special guests from the Yamaha Music Foundation in Japan.

    “I have learned that composition can be very fun… I’m excited but also very nervous,” she admits.

    Vanessa began her studies at Yamaha Music School in the Junior Music Course. She has since won numerous awards for her solo and ensemble performances, and even received a medal for her achievements in the RCM Grade 6 exam, which she completed this past spring.

    When it comes to home practice, Vanessa says, “I practice about 1 to 2 hours every day, except for a few lazy days!”

    The showcase will feature original compositions by Yamaha students, all under the age of 16 years old, and will take place on November 8 at the Gateway Theatre in Richmond, BC.

    All Yamaha students are welcome to submit their compositions to the Junior Original Concert. Talk to our administrative staff for more information!
