On April 8, We Held Our Annual Achievement Day at Flourish!
If you’re not already familiar with Achievement Day, it is a non-competitive event where students receive written feedback from experienced music educators. Students perform two pieces of music, and complete “options” such as a creative project, scales, etc.
We had 51 students participate this year! Pictured are all of the participants with their certificates. We are so proud of them!
