PMA Home Graduation

This family arranged for a home concert to celebrate the milestones achieved by each of their daughters. The violinist and ‘cellist each graduated from Book 1 and the pianist celebrated a Minuet Graduation. Neighbors and friends filled the home, brought appetizers and desserts, and understood why sometimes the girls have had to finish a practice session before coming out to play! The private teachers of The Pittsburgh Music Academy generously donated their time and talents to attend a play with the children. A truly delightful time was had by all and the girls experienced a unique performance that encouraged success in a way not seen before.
