Don’t Fight the Lure of Outside

Don't fight the lure of outside ... move lessons there!

‘Tis the season for final school projects and tests, outdoor sports, mosquitoes, and trying to convince the kids there is a reason to give full effort until the last day of lessons.  It can feel a little like herding cats … in a room full of rocking chairs.  Don’t fight the lure of outside!  Let’s take lessons from the piano to where students want to be and give them the change of pace they are craving.

The Dreaded June Slide

The Dreaded June Slide

June. The weather is perfect for dinners on the patio, a fantastic fruity drink in hand, kids running around with their friends not to be seen for hours, visiting with friends in the extended evenings & relaxing in the sun (or shade, if you burn like I do).
Or, perhaps your June looks a little more like our home & you are ready for summer to be here.
These are the signs that your students or you are done … & what to do to keep the excitement going until the very last lesson.

Surprise your students with how fun music history can be!

Music History Group Lessons

I have a deep, dark secret. I don’t spend nearly enough time on music history in my studio. But, it’s something I want to change & have rounded up some tools to help do that!
This month, my students are delving into the interesting world of classical music composers. I’m giving you access to all the activities & materials I used to make this group lesson a success!
