I believe music education is vitally important as it teaches one of the most important skills of childhood…confidence. But it’s not the egotistical, brash arrogance posing as confidence that is plaguing our society. Rather, we parents want our kids to be a clear channel for intuition and spirit developed by learning the laws of the […]
It’s less than a month to our Spring Recital. Public performance is a huge growth opportunity and an essential skill for success in life. I’ve heard many adults say how public speaking is at the top of their fear lists. It was mine too! Back when I was an awkward kid, somehow, I knew that […]
Wow, what a great set of concerts we had on Saturday! Life Skills It’s truly amazing to see what our kids can accomplish with some directed focus, guidance and perseverance. These skills translate into wonderful life success skills and you may already notice them surfacing in areas like school, sports and homework. But, I think […]
Tomorrow is our big day. We have two concerts scheduled at the Park Slope Library at 9th street and 6th Avenue. 11:30 am 2:15pm As we have grown, we’ve had to create two separate concerts as the auditorium would not fit us. Plus, I’m afraid of tiring out our audience with multiple renditions of Hot […]
What a great year it has been. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday and see you in the new year. The recital is coming January 30, so don’t forget to practice!

We had our 10th recital hosted by the Brooklyn Public Library and it was a resounding success! Such a wonderful diversity of music, talent and focus. All my students pulled it together and presented their best. I’ve posted all the videos on our YouTube Channel.
By Andrew Ingkavet With all of my students, I stress the importance of memorizing their pieces, especially for performance at a recital. Here’s some of the reasons why. Repetition is the Mother of Skill How many times did Tiger Woods hit a golf ball before ever entering a competition? Apparently he was already golfing at […]
It was a great recital last Saturday at the Carroll Gardens Library in Brooklyn. With 30 students performing and a house of over 100 guests, we had a lovely time and everyone did their best. Thanks again to all the parents, grandparents, friends and family who came to show their support, love and appreciation of […]
Or things I wish I knew when I was 8 years old… We had such a great recital last Saturday and it made me think of how important these events are for so many reasons. Deadlines Recitals are like so many things in life. It’s a due date when you need to really know something […]
We’ll be hearing the great work your children have been doing on Saturday June 11 at 3pm at the Carroll Gardens Public Library. I’ll be there from 2:30pm to set up the room. If you can, please come early to help and to let your kids get acclimated and to calm down any last minute […]
What a great success our Winter Music Recital was last Saturday! I hope you all celebrated the great achievements of your children. No matter if they played some notes that were not intended, the entire process of going on stage, in public, in a crowded room of at least 80 people, and performing the piece […]
We’ll be having our recital at the Carroll Gardens branch of the Brooklyn Public Library on Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 2pm. The space looks nice and they even have a grand piano – though so out of tune it is unusable! It’s located at the corner of Clinton and Union Streets. The recital, as […]
Last Saturday’s Spring Recital was a great success and I am so proud of all of my students! Performing in public is a skill that only a small minority of people in this world have developed a comfort and ability with. It is such a huge accomplishment even to get up onstage and then to […]
