Our Summer Session winds down this week.  We will have a few weeks off and resume the last week of August.  Meanwhile we have a lot keeping us going.


Fall Session

Fall Session begins on Monday, August 28th.  We will keep the schedule from the summer session except for those requesting a change.  If you were not on the schedule for the summer, contact me as soon as possible to get a spot.


Practicing

One-Hundred Day Practicing Challenge!

If you haven’t started already, take this time before fall session to start your 100-day challenged.  See if you can make it 100-days in a row with this practice chart.  It works!


I have prizes for those who complete the challenge.  Just bring me your completed chart!

Mirabilis Guitar Ensemble

Mirabilis Studio has partnered with the Kerrville musical arts organization HCVAS to establish a brand new guitar ensemble beginning this fall: The Mirabilis Guitar Ensemble.  Initially, we will be rehearsing twice monthly and performing two or three times a year in the hill country area. 


All Mirabilis Students of intermediate level and above are invited to consider being a part of it.  We will be performing a wide variety of music in a small ensemble format (probably 6 to 12 players).  It will be a great opportunity to meet new guitarists and have fun in a casual performing environment.


The MGE will meet twice monthly beginning on Wednesday, September 6th from 7:30 to 8:30 at Schreiner University’s new Summerlin Music Education Building.


Contact me to add your name to the ensemble.  There will be small registration fee which will cover music and materials.

Johannes Möller to perform at Schreiner University

We have arranged with Schreiner University to bring another world-class concert soloist to Kerrville.  On Monday, October 23, SU will be hosting a master class and performance with Swedish Guitarist/Composer Johannes Möller, winner of the 2010 Guitar Foundation of American competition.  Tickets are still in the works, but my hope is that we will be able to make special arrangements for all of the students of Mirabilis Studio.  Our advanced students can make a request to be a student for the master class.
