Back to School, Graduations, and the Summer Contest!

August Updates!

  • Reminder - No Lessons August 20 through September 3. Summer break! Lessons resume after Labor Day. 
  • Sherwood Registration: Please register for 15 of the 16 fall term lessons. Lesson Time Details to follow.
  • I do have openings at FaithSlaker Music in Noble Square and at the Music Institute of Chicago in Evanston. I like to give preference to current families and friends, so let me know if you have anyone in mind that is looking for lessons!
  • No Lessons September 7 - 9. I am participating in a Suzuki training course those days.

As many of you know, I am working on becoming a Certified Suzuki Piano Teacher trainer for North, Central, and South America. This is an enormous undertaking, and I'm hoping to make a bulk of the progress on the application this term. I am getting really close to having the application portfolio together and really appreciate your help with this. I'd like to thank the following families for their patience as I worked through the lesson-video process of this project: Declan's Family, Kabir's Family, the Amy's Family, Orson's Family, and the students in my Book 1 Suzuki group class! I hope to submit the entire portfolio by the end of September!

Hello all PianoKids! You've worked hard all year and I'm so proud of all of you! I'd like to propose a contest for the remainder of the summer: send me a video by 8pm on Labor Day (Monday, September 3) of you playing your instrument in a creative, unusual, or impressive way. You may learn something entirely new, show us a new way of playing something old, incorporate technology or other instruments or even other skills that you have! Judges will determine the winner based on everyone's current level. The winner gets one free lesson to work on WHATEVER they want at the piano, plus their choice of where they fall in the order of the next recital. Have fun with it! I look forward to seeing everyone's submissions!
