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.

However, goal-setting and goal-keeping can be kind of tricky, particularly for...

Don’t Wait for Carnegie Hall: Recognizing Achievement in Young Piano Students

By McKenna Rammell, Assistant Director I believe recognizing achievement early equals SUCCESS for piano students. Celebrating milestones means students gain confidence and are more likely to succeed at other life activities they choose. Many of us think the success of piano lessons comes after years of hard work: the”Carnegie Hall” moment. For instance, when a student auditions for a college music program, when they debut their first music album, or when they can sit down and read whatever music they want to. These are all wonderful long-term achievements! However, along the way...

Schubert- The King of the Song

Our Composer for the Month of December is Franz Schubert! Did you know that Schubert composed over 1,500 pieces of music in his short 31 years of life?!

One thing that makes Schubert so important was how he integrated the lyrics into the piano part. The best example of this is Gretchen am Spinnrade. In it, the piano is reminiscent of the spinning wheel. Take a listen to it HERE. Did you know that when Schubert met Beethoven, it is said that he was...
