We have added 2 new homeschool classes for younger children. Music for Little Mozarts is for children ages 4-6, and The Singing Spot is for ages 4-7. In Music for Little Mozarts, we go on a Musical Adventure with Mozart Mouse and Beethoven Bear as we learn how to play the piano. We also dance, sing, color in our workbooks and just have fun with music! MFLM runs for 15 weeks and a parent or guardian must accompany the child to the class. Tuition is $12.50 per class, payable by the month, or $175 if you pay the entire tuition up front. Level 1 starts on March 1, so there is no time to lose to sign up!
The Singing Spot is a voice class for ages 4-7, and again the tuition is $12.50 per class, payable by the month. In The Singing Spot, we will learn how to sing using the Do Re Mi syllables and proper technique. We will sing a variety of fun songs. Other activities will include games, dances and playing simple instruments. Class starts March 1 and runs for 8 weeks. Come one, come all and sign up for The Singing Spot.

I’m so proud of my students who participated in the Open Mic at the Halloween Open House! Some of them are now working on holiday music and some are busy working on auditions for school musicals. Whatever you are practicing on, find family or friends to share your pieces with. Performing in front of others does get better and can be FUN!
I love this time of year! Love the Halloween music and am looking forward to the Open House when my students will be playing and singing in the Open Mic. I just got back from Mencheys in Hanover where I was on the lookout for new Christmas books and musical theatre music. Had a great time and spent too much money! After the Open House, my students will be working on music for the Fall Recital and I’ll also introduce Christmas music.
Looking forward to a new year of lessons and classes. We are running Musikgarten classes for Babies and Toddlers and for 3-5 year olds. Had a free class last week and we had so much fun! Also there are spaces in the Adult piano classes. Check out the group classes page on our website for more information.
