On the Podium: The 2016 PianOlympics Medalists!

As you might have seen a few weeks ago, in conjunction with the Rio 2016 Olympics we held our own Olympics event here at the Piano Academy! Students competed to see who could complete the most assignments in the given two weeks in several different categories, including method books, technique, and hymns according to their levels. We're excited to announce our PianOlympics medalists! (Because we had such a high number of students participating, and in order to avoid 7- or 8-way ties, we are awarding medals in all categories where students achieved a score of 3 or more - that is, they passed off at least 3 items in that category; so not every category will have medals for all 3. Students who would have gotten medals had we counted these many-way ties will receive an extra music buck reward!) We're so proud of all of our students' work!
