Jason completes Movement 2! I am so proud of him for doing the work to honestly learn bass clef notes, dynamics, articulations and expression without relying on YouTube. He does learn favorite songs on YouTube but he wants to learn piano without having to have that crutch. Way to go, Jason!!

October 2021 Newsletter
Our Community Service this month will be our Fall Program for Excelsior Nursing and Rehab and Valley Manor. This will be filmed at the First United Methodist Church on Saturday, October 30th starting at 9:45.
Students wear costumes and/or decorate their faces and play piano pieces using their music. All pieces are fall-themed: pumpkins, cats, frost, autumn mist or spooky in minor keys.
We are using two different pianos with no lost time between pieces so it will move quickly. Pianos are on opposite sides so parents and friends will want to sit on the side where the student is performing.
No limit on guests you may invite as it is a large auditorium. The program will be on YouTube and I will give you the link and is also on DVD’s for the nursing homes.
I will have openings for two students mid October. If interested, please call 816-637-3507.
