Miss Jaime

Thank you to Miss Jaime for the generous donation of adorable spring stickers! Our students will be motivated to earn them since they are so cute! Thank you again!

National Piano Guild Auditions

In 30 days, ten of our students will audition in front of a National Piano Guild Judge in our studio.

They will perform about 50 memorized songs in additional to a two octave memorized scale & memorized sets of chords for EACH song! Some of them will sight read in front of the judge!

I am really excited to offer them this opportunity! I give them all a lot of credit for taking on such an incredible challenge!

To our ten performers - no matter how the audition turns out, I will be proud of you no matter what! All that matters is that you try your best!

Best wishes! Good Luck!

Our Nursing Home Recital

Congratulations to all of our students who performed this evening for the residents of a local nursing home! The residents were delighted by our students' incredible talent! Thank you to the nursing home for the cookies & iced tea after the recital! Tonight we tried something a little different... the students performed in order by age. We started with our only preschooler & concluded with one of our middle school students. The residents loved it. At the same time, so did our students! Some of our younger beginner students were inspired by our more experienced students & they had the chance to see first hand the results of years of practice at the piano! Thank you to all of our performers:
Ellie
Trevor
Sydney
Grant
Jaime
Fayth
Jackie
Jonathan
Emily
Elizabeth
Jaime, Fayth, Jonathan, Emily & Elizabeth performed all of the songs they are memorizing & preparing to perform before a National Piano Guild Judge in May.
This evening was Miss Sydney's first ever recital. This evening was Mister Jonathan & Miss Elizabeth's first time ever performing at this nursing home!
Congratulations to all of you!
Thank you!
