Spring 2012 Piano Recital Assignment

The theme for the spring recital is Celebrating the Classics. Students will be performing musical selections that were composed by notable composers (like Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, etc), or tunes that are traditional/folk songs and generally recognizable and well-loved.

In preparation for the recital, I would like you to research and learn about the music that you are performing. Please answer the following questions as best as you can about each of your recital songs (in other words, you should complete two worksheets). This assignment is due during your lesson the week of May 14-18th.
