Awards & Rewards


Note-worthy Experiences is focused on positively reinforcing all of the efforts our students during lessons with countless stickers. This year we are going to reward students for their accomplishments in school and for their dedication to piano lessons. At our Annual Recital, I am going to include the following awards:

I believe that all of our students are talented pianists! Our students have become talented pianists through hard work during their lessons & practicing their homework assignments.

I believe that school academics are important for our pianists too! Consequently, I have created a "Good Grades Jar" and placed it in the piano room. Each student who brings a report card full of A's and B's (or the equivalent there of) can place their name on a piece of paper & place it in the jar. At our Recital, we will draw one name from the jar - the winner will receive a special prize. Please remind your pianist to bring their Report Card to their next lesson.

At the time of our Recital, many of our students will have been studying at Note-worthy Experiences for over 1 or 2 years. To celebrate these accomplishments, our students will be given 1 or 2 year music pins at the Recital.

Miss Arden

Miss Arden took a moment during her piano lesson to pose for Tessa to take her photo! As you can clearly see, Miss Arden is very proud of the hard work she has put into her piano lessons & practice so far! I am certain we will see Miss Arden's photos on our blog again soon for completing her first set of lesson books! Thank you Tessa & Arden for sharing!

Ballet & Piano

Did you know that Note-worthy Experiences Piano Students participate in activities outside of piano?

Here is proof that our students are not required to practice their piano assignments during ALL of their free time! Miss Julie & Miss Ericka (in the 1st photo) danced in four numbers at every one of the four productions put on by Miss Pat's Stage Door Studio this past weekend. Miss Ellie (in the 2nd photo with Miss Julie) danced in one number at each of the four productions. Great job girls!

Please send us photos of our other Note-worthy Experiences Students participating in their favorite extra curricular activities! Please send us photos of our students playing piano at home or here! We would love to share your photos with the rest of our Note-worthy Experiences Families!
