Dear Janne, This is just a little note to thank you for organising the Concert on Sunday. It must be a mammoth task! We thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the session after the interval. Your students produced such beautiful sounds. Now I can see why you made them spit rice grains in the beginning!!!!! I love your waltz duet and the Pachebel Canon - it's so cleverly arranged - why don't they perform that in Suzuki Flute Graduation Concert. It will be such a refreshing change. Thank you for teaching Justin to produce such beautiful sound on the flute. On that day, I nearly have tears in my eyes listening to him played the second piece. Well done Janne Frost! Three cheers to you! Best regards always Helen S Janne What a huge effort yesterday was for you. You are so wonderful to each and every one of those children. The little children were excellent sitting still for so long I was very impressed. See you tomorrow With love from us both Chrissie and Alice Congrats for putting together the wonderful concert last Sunday. It was a gratifying experience for Helen and me to hear Justin playing the entire piece from A to Z for the first time. Usually his practice is punctuated with predictable interruptions with several visits to the toilet and one never gets to listen to the piece in its entirety. So thank you Janne for making things happen. See you on Thursday Joe
