On October 29th we had our first Halloween performance! Thank you to everyone who came! 🎃 We loved seeing all of your costumes, and hearing you play. We are hoping to do many more informal performance days like this in the future!


We were lucky to get a visit from the Ghost of Elvis at our costume performance party. He played an excerpt from Graceful Ghost Rag by William Bolcom... Also could barely see the sheet music through the dark sunglasses! LOL!!


Happy Friday everyone! Here's our 5th practice tip for everyone :)

“Break it Up” 2 short and focused bursts of practicing can be more productive than 1 longer session. Try breaking up practice times and achieve smaller goals more consistently.
Just remember, we are what we practice! Have fun, be patient, and strive for consistency! We hope these tips can help make practice less of a chore, and more towards all the rewarding feelings that come through music making.


Today's practice tip:

2.) “Jump around” All too often, students start practicing just at the beginning of the piece. Makes for a strong intro, but what about the rest of the song! Being able to start and play anywhere in the song deepens understanding of the content. Try to start anywhere besides the beginning!

More tips to come :)


Today's practice tip:

“Say-n-Play” Saying the letters out loud while playing the notes is a very helpful way to practice for students in all levels. This practice technique aids with note recognition, developing tonal memory and betters concentration. Tip #2 tomorrow!
