Everyone got a real treat on May 17th when the community kids put on their annual piano recital. The crowd was entertained with a multitude of talents including solo and duet piano performances, singing, and a trumpet solo! The little trumpeter was thrilled when the crowd called for more, which he had already prepared for, and he launched into it immediately after hearing the word “encore”. Another highlight was a beautiful piano rendition of Adele’s “Hello”.
The kids have been taking lessons all year with their teacher Rhonda Kennedy who has been teaching students piano for 38 years here at the National Home! The only requirement for students is to be at least 8 years old and have an interest in learning music. Rhonda’s teaching doesn’t just stop at piano, either. If a student is in band or choir and wants to bring their music in for help, she will work with them on that material as well.
