SAVE THE DATE - Our Annual Recital is Sunday, November 4, 2018 - It is a day of excitement for our students and parents. The recital showcases the skills your child has learned through the year. A recital is in it-self a learning experience, builds confidence, and completes the study of music while teaching students stage presentation and performance skills. We highly recommend this exciting opportunity to perform. Our recitals are low pressure, fun, and family friendly! If you should decide not to participate in the recital, we encourage you to continue with lessons and come see the show!

The Adult Student - Patience & Practice is Key
Adults take music lessons for a variety of reasons. Perhaps it is something they have always wanted to do but only now can find the time to commit the time required to make measurable progress. Perhaps they had lessons as a child and want to brush up on old skills and learn new ones. Whatever the reason, the most essential element needed to be a successful adult student is patience. Unlike children, who are delighted with everything they learn and every piece they play, adults are hyper-critical of themselves and often grow frustrated because their playing doesn't yet sound "professional" or skillful. Another impediment to successful adult music lessons is insufficient practice time. Adults, understandably, have difficulty committing to regular daily practice, due to the pressures of daily life and the temptation to procrastinate and "cram" what should be a daily practice regimen into one or two days (usually before the next scheduled lesson). We believe it is never "too late" to start lessons, so long as the adult possesses the requisite patience, has sufficient time in his or her schedule for regular daily practice of at least 30 minutes a day, and is able to leave his or her self-criticism at the door.
