Spring Break Week


The week of March 19-23 the studio is closed as I will be attending a conference in Orlando where I am presenting a session called Taming the Jungle: Digital Management Strategies for the Independent Music Teacher. 

Not only is it a great opportunity for me to get a chance to present, but attending conferences is how I glean new ideas and keep my teaching fresh.

Since the studio is closed that week, I will be OPEN the week that most schools are on Spring Break.

As always, there are no makeup lessons if you are gone the week of Spring Break as it is physically impossible for me to accommodate that many makeups. However, at my discretion, I will do my best to make a short video recording or will give them a new piano book in place if they are to miss.

If you will be gone the week of Spring Break please let me know if you haven't already.

We just finished another week of group classes and have two more to go (April and May). While I show you pictures occasionally in the newsletter and on social media, I thought I would share specifically what goes on in group classes and specifically why I feel it's an important component in learning piano.

Ever Wonder?
