Clara’s Piano Competition Piece ~ Debussy

Happy Monday!

I hope all of you enjoyed a relaxing weekend and were able to recharge for the week ahead. Along with the usual basketball game, ballet class and church we got to hear Clara’s flawless performance of Debussy’s Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum at the CSO Young Musicians Competition. Since I couldn’t record the actual performance, I’ll share a practice run through.


Nicholas was excited to put together his first ever model.
