Our big spring silent movie film festival project is starting in March! All of my students will be composing music for a silent film clip that will be compiled for everyone to view.  More details to come! For now save the date for a potential film viewing evening for the whole family on May 18th!!

Spring Recital is CANCELLED as are recital prep labs

Friday, February 2, 2024 by Kara Hess | Recital

Hello Piano Families,

I wanted to let you all know that our annual spring recital that was scheduled for March is CANCELLED.  Since we will not be having a recital I will not be teaching recital prep labs as indicated on the piano calendar.  

PLEASE NOTE: there will be NO LESSONS on the days where I was going to hold recital labs.  This means that there will be no lessons February 13-19, March 13-14 & March 26-29.

The cancelled piano labs will not affect anyone's piano invoice.  The labs were going to be offered at no additional charge. Your student will still be able to attend the full 28 weeks of lessons even without lessons on these scheduled dates (as mentioned in the policy document I sent out at the beginning of the piano year).

I will do my best to send out text reminders about these dates as they approach.

Thank you for allowing me to be your students' teacher!  I look forward to my silent film festival with background music composed by my students. This will take place in May.  More information to come!

A new month means a fun new song to learn!  The ensemble piece "Clouds" is by Dorla Aparicio. It is a beautiful piece that has five different parts students will play together in a group or as a duet with me.

REMEMBER: Look closely at your piano calendar for this month and only come to lessons when they are scheduled 😄
