this rare event. KRF will allow you a time to experience the mentorship of a true master of music. Peters will share his background, personal musical journey, and where music has taken him in his life. Peters believes that music brings true healing due to his personal health struggle, and connection to music.

In the mid-nineties, Peters was diagnosed and, over time, made a recovery from lymph cancer. In 2005, Peters discovered that he was suffering from chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Since then, he began a cancer foundation called Love Hope Strength to help others with their fight. During KRF’s special event, Peters will demonstrate music that heals, stimulates,

 and brings joy.

Learning to Rock

Just before the holidays I overheard a couple of students chatting here at KRF on their way home. The boy was bemoaning making the same mistake over and over and his sister, who couldn’t have been more than eleven, turned to her brother and quoted Batman Begins:

Sandy* was right, getting over mistakes just takes practice. Putting in hard work really makes a difference. You can listen to the latest recordings from our KRF Band: Cutting Edge

Dreamline

 We don’t just need to learn a task in order to perform it well; we need to overlearn it. Decades of research have shown that superior performance requires practicing beyond the point of mastery. The perfect execution of a piano sonata … doesn’t mark the end of practice; it signals that the crucial part of the session is just getting underway.
Over-Practicing Makes Perfect | TIME 

Help our kids practice, by sharing the gift of music!
