Student Spotlight: Anna, Charlotte, Adam, and Emma Herzog
Congratulations to Conservatory piano students Anna, Charlotte, Adam, and Emma Herzog for earning State Honors at Spring 2019 Student Day Examinations, hosted by the Florida State Music Teachers Association. The Student Day event is a rigorous process which involves exams in both written and aural theory, as well as demonstration of keyboard skills and performance of 2-3 memorized pieces, based on skill level. The Herzogs all earned high scores in each category! They are pictured here with their teacher, Angelyn Traylor.
