Shalin Liu Piano Recitals: “Moonlight Mood”

On April 8, four of my students performed at the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, as part of the annual North Shore Piano Teachers Guild Piano Recitals, and all did an outstanding job. Here is one of those performances! Bravo! 🙂

Julie Cleveland’s Students Performing at Shalin Liu Performance Center this Sunday

This Sunday, four of my students will be taking part in the annual North Shore Piano Teachers’ Guild Shalin Liu Piano Recitals. The Guild holds three recitals in one afternoon each spring at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, in which students of piano teachers from around the North Shore participate. Each recital is about 50 minutes long. Three of my students are performing in the 1:00 pm recital, and one in the 2:30 pm recital. Very very proud of how hard these students have worked for this performance. 🙂

Here’s one of my students who participated in last year’s Shalin recitals:
