With the move for my husband's parents now complete, I can turn my full attention to scheduling and planning for the school year. Thank you for your patience and grace!

You can imagine things have gotten a little behind here at home with much of our time and energy focused in Wisconsin this past month, whether in Neenah as we closed out the house, or in Hudson getting them settled into their apartment. I'm giving myself a little breathing room to get caught up with the rest of life and be fully prepared to dive into a very full schedule this year. 

The next couple days will be spent nailing down the weekly lesson schedule while trying to get everyone their preferred time; expect a proposed schedule very soon. I've been ordering lots of new materials already in preparation for this new year and am anxious to get back to the piano with your kids!

March Composer of the Month: Bela Bartok

Good morning!

My website has been updated with a biography of Bela Bartok and a link to a recording of Bartok playing one of my favorite pieces. I know several families have been making a point of keeping up with these music history lessons at home.

Don't forget about Performance Club tomorrow, please RSVP if you haven't already!

Performance Club Reminder

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 by Betsy Breaker | Uncategorized

It’s Performance Club this week!,Friday from 3:20-4:30! It’s our last club gathering before the recital rehearsal.

Students will be selecting pieces themselves for recital. It is most important to me that they perform something they want to share. If they’re undecided I may nudge them into the piece I feel is best-prepared, if there’s a difference. 

First year students, especially, we often make last minute decisions on pieces because they are often learning 2-3 new pieces every week. 

Please RSVP for your student for Friday, and if you are able to be a parent helper Friday that would be much appreciated!!
