Group Class Makeup

In October, I had to cancel our first group class week of the year due to illness. I wanted to offer another group class for students to attend if they are interested/able. 

Option 1: Wednesday, April 24 @ 6:00-7:30p.m.
Option 2: Thursday, April 25 @ 3:00-4:30p.m.
Option 3: Thursday, April 25 @ 4:45-6:15p.m.

If you haven't already done so, please email or text me and let me know which of the three dates you could be available to attend. (Participation is not expected nor required).
Email Amy about my availability to attend.

Amy's Conference Experience

If you're interested in seeing a little more about what my recent trip to the Music Teachers National Association Conference was like, I wrote a recap post on my website for Piano Teachers. Read more here.

Summer Information and Move Update

This is generally the time of year I put out my Summer lesson information. Unfortunately, at the moment things are completely up in the air!

In my December update, I let you know that we were moving into the basement of our home (future studio area) while we completed the rest of the house.

We are waiting on our kitchen cabinets. Until we can move out of the basement, we can't move the studio out of the office and into the new house. Our cabinets will be ready anywhere between the middle of May and July!

I have considered taking the summer off, as I have not taken a summer off since I opened the studio in 2011, however, if I can't move out of the building, I will need to continue teaching to pay rent. :-)

I'm going to do my best to keep you up-to-date as things progress and try to have some sort of solid plan for summer, but as of this moment, the timing of all of this is completely out of my control.

It's possible we may be able to move the last week of May, but may not have time to really set up for Summer lessons. If this is the case, I've considered the possibility of doing in-home lessons in June and July (I would come to your home). 

Would you take a moment to let me know if this is something you would even remotely be interested in/willing to do?

Outside Summer Camps

Piano and Composition Camp - Anderson University

Anderson University’s Piano-Composition Camp is a unique program that allows young pianists to not only develop their piano and musicianship skills but also to learn how to compose their own pieces by learning fundamental skills of music theory and composition. It will also be a great opportunity for them to make new friends from all over the world!    Read More.

Piano Camp - Butler University

Butler piano camp for ages 7-11 is designed for students with at least one year prior piano study. It is recommended that students have at least one year of piano study. Students will be divided into smaller groups based on age and repertoire level. Activities will focus on music skills that are appropriate for students in each respective group. Our intent is to maintain interest, stimulate imagination, and provide attainable challenges. Classes may include repertoire, ensemble, music theory, and games.     Read More.
