School started this past week, giving me a week to prepare my studio for the piano year. I like to give my students and their parents the first week of school away from the piano, enabling them to make the transition from lackadaisical summer to structured school year as smooth as possible. My lessons will recommence on Tuesday.
In the meantime, I am sprucing up my studio. Fresh paint on the walls and ceiling. Yes, the Teletubby water stain above the piano will soon be a thing of the past. I am very excited about the studio up-do. The shelves that house all my music are not big enough to hold the books vertically -- I'm getting that changed. New wall color to coordinate with the re-upholstered furniture, and new curtains. I'll even wax and polish the floor. When all is said and done, I hope to find my camera and post a picture of the finished product.
All that being said, I am still accepting students for the coming piano year. The first lesson is complimentary; we need to make sure we fit. I am currently teaching Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons for school age children; adult lessons are any time of day. Give me a call, or shoot me an e-mail. I will be happy to discuss my philosophy and studio policy with you. Remember, you are never too old to learn to play an instrument. Or too young, for that matter. I love what I do, and I do it well.
