September Music Notes
- For All Saturday Students: Starting THIS WEEK (Saturday, September 21) we will be in the Fine Arts Building at 410 South Michigan Avenue, Studio 727. I have arranged to be there for the rest of September. We are trying it out, so please let me know what you think!
- For those of you who need an adjustable piano bench at home, there is a large order being placed through the Music Institute of Chicago which drastically decreases the cost of these benches ($315 instead of $599). All order forms need to be in by the end of the month. Please let me know if you're interested!
- The swap list for FaithSlaker Music students has been posted on my website. Ask me in lesson for the password!
- The Grand Avenue Bridge is going to be closed until the 27th of September. If you rely on that route to my studio, please make other plans!
You guys need to send me some new videos! I've had to resort to machines! Here is a mixed instrument player piano at House on the Rock.
Although they're not that bad.......
And here is Toby, back from the summer and trying out Variation A. Remember when Variation A was new???

Ready to Upgrade? Or do you have materials to donate? New students are always looking for footstools that your child may have outgrown. If you're no longer using it, let's pass it along! Footstools, pianos, keyboards, extra Suzuki books, CDs, Practice-help books, etc! Thanks for sharing and adding to our community!
