There are piano lessons every day of every week in March including during Spring Break. If you are not coming, please give me as much notice as possible so that other students can take advantage of make-up times.

Four students are working hard on their compositions for the competition in Piano Explorer due March 6th. The theme of their piece must be Artic or Antarctic. Rowan Graham has completed his and his title is “Artic Storm”. Rose has called hers “Playful Penguins” and I don’t know the names that Ellie and Georgia have chosen.
