A new waiting room has been greeting students and families since mid-July! We've done a major rehab of the house so that students no longer need to walk through my teaching studio to get to the waiting room—there is now a new side entrance that goes right into the new waiting room! Some photos are already posted here—check back in late August for even more photos of the new space. You just saw the beginning of the new soundproof wall south of the waiting room . . .
Students and myself have thoroughly enjoyed the studio's new Yamaha C7 grand piano! It is 7'6", and has a gorgeous sound and a luscious feel. See it and hear it for yourself . . .
Seven students from the studio entered the Sonata-Sonatina Festival of the North Shore Music Teachers Association. Four won Silver medals, three won Gold—these three also performed in the Gold Medal Recitals the following week on Northwestern University's campus. Congratulations to all who participated!
Now that many students' families own iPhones and iPads, they have been using them to assist in their home practice. Students have been recording themselves doing performances of entire pieces and short segments of new pieces, then sending them to me via e-mail for my feedback (which also is via e-mail). This has enabled me to give a "mini-lesson" midway during students' practice weeks, fostering quicker progress!
