Happy Drills! One of Russie’s favorite Mom, who happened to be the best coach. While J. is improving his passages, Russia is happy to learn, “roll over”, “give me five”, “spin” and other commands.

I finally found time to post about our wonderful experience with a professional photografer in our last Piano Concert.
https://elzaritterpianolessons.com/image-gallery/
Here is my letter of recommendation.

“One of my piano student’s family introduced me to Sharosh.
He was generously offered his service to us for a winter recital 2019. After I looked at his photographs on his website https://www.lightfocusclick.com
I was thrilled that we are going to have a professional photographer!
Sharosh handled our communications in details and in very professional manner.
It was very easy to work with him. He is humble amazing person.
During Recital, Sharosh have followed all my guidances and was reasonably creative.
It is not easy to handle a Piano Concert with 25 performers, playing on two grand pianos, from age 5 to 15. Sharosh did wonderful photographs of Grand Piano itself which is very artistically expressive. He did turned in photographs quiet fast, in next couple of days, which was terrific!
My experience working with Sharosh was perfect and I would recommend him with no hesitation.”

Concert # 1 in the season 2018-2019.
Just beautiful!!

*Mistake. The Library of the Congress. Not Kennedy Center. I used to go to Kennedy Center:-)
Really liked acoustic.

Did not like a sick lady who came with 100% flue symptoms, coughing and sneezing every 5 min and making noice with another cough drop she was sucking so loudly like she was chowing a gum.

No respect to musicians and fellow attendees. She should be in bed instead of passing her germs.
I moved out after intermission to another seat, however it did not stop her germs to enjoy concert and frustrate others.
Any rules for such cases? I wish it is.

Another video of young extremely talented musicians in Moscow subway. They should play on a big stage.
However too many good musicians and not enough stages for everyone in Russia ... possible the same situation in USA?
