SMART Musical Goals

What is the number one most commonly discussed subject this time of year? Goal setting! People are making goals to eat less, read more, increase their organization and decrease their debt. Hopefully, all of our students are thinking about what they want to accomplish in their piano studies this year. Goal setting is important for youth because it gives them something to work for as well as a sense of confidence when they reach what they set out to do!i We want 2018 to be a year of focus and progress for everyone! However, goal-setting and goal-keeping can be kind of tricky, particularly for...

Christmas Music from Piano Academy

Christmas Music from Piano Academy

For as long as I can remember, the rule in my house growing up was that Christmas decorations went up the day after Thanksgiving. While some of us kids got grumpy about it once in a while (sorry, Mom), we all helped to put together the Christmas tree, add lights and ornaments, and place other various decorations around the house. But the thing that always came out of the box first was the Christmas music! It didn’t feel like Christmas until we were dancing and singing to “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree.” Although I haven’t been home for the decorating part for...

A frequent question I get asked when I say I play the piano is, “Have you played all your life?” I probably started when I was 7 or 8, and had lessons off and on until college. In response, many people say, “I wish I had taken piano lessons.” I often...
