Clinician for the 2012 TPSMEA CHC is Mrs. Marianna Simpson
A word about ordering music for the CHC.
www.jspeppermusic.com has the festival list for the CHC.
Several of the titles are currently on backorder and will be available in 1-2 weeks. Once your order is placed, they will be delivered when received.
"Marianina" is coming from overseas. Pepper has ordered stock, but it may be up to a month before you receive this piece. It is easily learned and please do not panic!!!! I have Pepper's assurance that a large order has been placed and that it will just take time.
The "Gounod" piece is "out of print." We will make the piece available on the TPSMEA website and you will need to download it. ADDITIONALLY, when you register for the clinic, you will need to submit $1.50 per participating teachers and students. Students will not be allowed to participate in the clinic until this amount is received.
Mrs. Simpson is preparing performance notes for each piece and I will send those to you when I have them.
You may obtain rehearsal and accompaniment CD's through Bass Line Productions.
