Spring 2017 Recital

Today is a special recital!

Kelsea Villanueva and Emily Goes are graduating and pursuing their dreams. The Villanueva and Goes families have raised students of such high quality & character!

Kelsea began studying piano with me in 2004. She's developed quick and light fingers that can play out fantastic ornaments. Over the years, she's participated in the Certificate of Merit, Piano Achievements, and Royal Conservatory of Music programs and passed her Theory Rudiments. She plays classical music and pop tunes from a chord sheet.

Emily began studying voice with me in 2009. She's developed an incredibly versatile voice with strong emotive subtleties. She earned the National Award for Level 8 voice from the Royal Conservatory of Music's program in the United States, the Music Development Program. She's performed with multiple local companies and Great America.

Both girls work so diligently - they've learned how to tackle any music task. Their attitude and approach to developing a skill will serve them in all sectors of life as they leap into their futures.
Brava! Kelsea and Emily. I truly love you!
