A Favor Asked

Please do not use any of my neighbor’s driveways when coming to, or leaving from piano lessons.  It is fine to use my driveway if you feel the need to turn around.  Thank you.

What’s New?

Technology is changing the way we learn music.  Over the next few months, I will be phasing in a couple of new programs to help students solidify what they learn at lessons.    Ask me about the enhancements being made to my studio–I think you’ll be happy to hear what’s coming!

Next week, April 8-14, is Spring Break for most students, so we will not be having regular lesson time. Several students are traveling to fun and exotic places.  Enjoy your trips!

Students who are participating in NYSSMA should be in the home stretch of preparation for that event.  This week’s focus will be on solidifying our memory work.
