Miss Sydney

Please join me in a huge round of applause for Miss Sydney!  She recently was visiting her grandmother in a local nursing home.  While she was there, she performed an impromptu recital for the residents.  The residents loved having her perform!  Congratulations!

Good luck on your National Piano Guild Auditions

Good luck to 18 of our 44 students who will be performing their scales, chords and songs from memory before a National Piano Guild Judge in less than one month!  Best wishes to Jonathan, Gabriel, Kendall, Sydney, Antonio, Danielle, Ericka, Abigail, Emily, Grace, Jaimeson, Trevor, April, Elizabeth, Lailany, Jaime, Matthew and Jacklyn on your performances!  I believe in you!  I know that these months and weeks of hard work and practice will pay off!  Some of you have already spent hours with your metronomes!  Some of your family members know your songs by heart!  It will be worth it all in the end!  Especially when you get to dive into my incredible buffet of snacks and treats when you are done with your performance.  Trust me you will be proud of yourself when you receive your beautiful certificates and shiny pins.  Good luck to all of you!  I am proud of each and every one of you!
Hugs!
