Xmas piano

Hi Everyone!

Who’s excited for Christmas? Some of our classes have already began to play Christmas music.

I just wanted to post a quick note to let everyone know the format for December into January.

  • December 8-12:  Treasure Box is open! Time to redeem those beans!
  • Dec. 15-19: Christmas Singalong and decorating cookies. ***Email me if you have any allergies! I make everything on site.***
  • The holidays will be from December 20th-January 4th, inclusive.

I hope Santa is good to you and everyone has a wonderful time with family over the holidays! And maybe you can even get some non-rushed, piano practice time in with the kids đŸ˜‰

 

Musically,

Mairéad

This week I have invited private students, along with Sunbeams 2 and 3 students, to attend a workshop entitled Calming the Practice Monster.
