Padmini T, Age 7

Instrument / Teacher: Piano with Teacher Jeffrey

Why was Padmini nominated?

It’s a joy to play musical games with Padmini, whether it’s tossing a ball and singing a lesson song, making up silly poses, or floating around the piano bench in a dynamic duet, all of our lessons have been fun and musically nutritious. Padmini is also consistent practicer (no surprise!), doing 5-15 minutes almost everyday and recording those minutes on her assignment sheet. She always does her best and with a smile!  ~ Teacher Jeffrey

Q: How long have you been taking piano lessons?
A: 2 Years

Q: What do you enjoy most about your music lessons and seeing your teacher each week?
A: I really like beat lessons like tossing the ball and singing the song with Teacher Jeffrey.

Q: Do you have a favorite genre of music that you like to listen to?
A: Classical Music.

Q: When you are practicing your instrument at home, between lessons, what helps you do your best? Practice advice / tips to share with other music students?
A: When Teacher Jeffrey writes in the binder, it helps me to read the notes later when I practice. For practice tips, I would say practice the hard things first and then practice the pieces that are easier. This way you work on things you need the most practice on when you have most energy.

Q: What are some of your other interests? What do you do for fun besides music?
A: I love doing gymnastics and playing with my puppy.

Bruce H, Age 8, Piano Student: I’ve found that sitting the piano in a bright window, facing outside, has been the most productive place for me to practice. A piece of advice is to exercise your body and practice piano early every day. Sometimes it can get really hard, but you have to keep practicing to figure out the solutions.

Why is Bruce in Myriad’s Hall of Fame? Bruce goes above and beyond with practice time. He frequently practices more than 200 minutes per week! He is excited about piano, and often adds his own spin to the songs he learns and transposing them into different keys. He also spends time exploring the piano and writing his own compositions.” ~ Teacher Amy
