As we get set to start another year of lessons, it is well worth checking out this interesting article about how “music produces profound and lasting changes in the brain.”
Today, I sent lesson confirmations to all new and returning students. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone when lessons begin the week of September 9th.
I still have a few spaces available, so if you know of anyone looking for a piano teacher, I always appreciate referrals!
Hope you all have a great long weekend!
Quizlet is a lightning fast way to memorize terms. It’s like flashcards, but much more fun and interactive.
I started using it this summer to help students memorize terms for RCM History I and also some technique. As the year goes, on I will be creating more classes.
You can make up your own Quizlets for just about anything you need to memorize, or do a search. You might find just the thing you need!
