Lesson Times: I've emailed everyone to confirm your lesson time. If you wind up with a conflict, just let me know and we'll try to work it out.

Portable CD Player

I know CDs are reaching their sunset years as digital/streaming music becomes the norm; but for young piano students, CDs are still an important tool in the learning and practice process. Nearly all the piano method books I use with young students still come with accompanying CDs so that students can hear the music they're supposed to be learning, and even practice along with the recordings.

Older students will just use their smartphones to hear the music they're working on, but you will thank me for asking younger students to do this with a portable CD player and not with your smartphone or iPad.

Here's the player I've purchased for the studio. It's small, very lightweight, and includes bluetooth in case you also want to play your smartphone or iPad music through it. If you don't already have a portable CD player for your young piano student, please consider getting one.

Summer Piano

The summer piano lesson schedule has been posted. As always, the summer schedule is first-come, first-served, so visit the summer page and schedule lesson times that will work for you. Remember that students who wish to return in the fall must take a minimum of four summer lessons.
