Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!  I truly am thankful for so much in my life.  I am thankful for the gift of music that I was given by my parents and grandparents 34 years ago.  I am thankful for the lessons music has taught me, for the people it has helped me meet and for the career that it has provided me.  Even though I am thankful for music, in the recent years, I do not play the piano on Thanksgiving  I typically spend the day with my family and enjoying being in the moment with them. 

Happy Chanukah

Happy Chanukah to all of our friends and families who will be celebrating today and the coming days!

Our studio has been selected to host a Roland HPi6F - SB Digital Piano for three months!  

This is a major honor and privilege for our students!  The local Steinway & Roland dealer will provide us with this instrument.

I cannot wait to start working on it for lessons!  We will be able to play interactive note reading and rhythm games, record our pieces, add sounds and features and save it all onto portable flash drives!  Students will be able to take their recorded works home with them!

I need to rearrange furniture because our studio will have three pianos in after tomorrow!

Miss Bridget

Please join me in a mega big round of applause for Miss Bridget! 

Miss Bridget earned her certificate for completing the Primer Level Piano Adventures Series this week.  Bridget has already started to work out of her Level 1 Series.  She was lucky enough to even get a chance to wear her adorable Halloween Costume to her lesson this week!  Bridget and I also just celebrated our 1 year anniversary together!  I am impressed with how far Bridget has come in only one year! 

When Bridget is not playing the piano, she enjoys swimming, gymnastics, and playing with her friends.

Congratulations Bridget!

Miss Sarah


Please join me in congratulating Miss Sarah for completing her Piano Adventures Level 3A Series.  Sarah has already started working from her Level 3B books.  Miss Sarah has worked very hard at the piano for several years.  She was able to come to her piano lesson as a cross country runner for Halloween this week. 

When Miss Sarah is not playing the piano, she enjoys cross country training and races.  She also enjoys diving and horse back riding!

Please join me in a round of applause for Sarah and her success!

I am very proud of you Sarah!
