The school year is off to a great start - every one is making good progress and I'm very excited to hear all of my students perform in our fall recitals!

Since the last music newsletter,

Suzy W. subbed on organ at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Encinitas.

Sam R.,Margaret C., and Miranda K. played music for worship at St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

Kate M. played music for school chapel prelude at St. Paul's Lutheran School.

Keep up the great work!

Binder/Music Reminder

Remember to check your student's binder weekly for:
  • lesson assignments (progress is so much faster when practice is focused on the right things!)
  • recital forms
  • festival and competition forms
  • Piano Explorer magazine (a wonderful way to grow your family's musical knowledge and spark your student's interest!)

Off to a great start!

The music year is off to a great start! Beginners are learning their first notes and starting a musical journey that will last a lifetime. Elementary students having a wonderful time playing Happy Birthday, Jesus Loves Me, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, and other favorite tunes. Intermediate and advanced students are enjoying the challenge of new and exciting pieces and are busy preparing for a variety of festivals and competitions. I'm looking forward to our fall recitals and celebrating the musical growth that has taken place!
