Recital Invitation

Never in 30 years of teaching have I had a student do such a beautiful invitation.  Mallory is participating in her first recital and wanted a special invitation for her family and friends.  I love it!  Great job, Mallory.

Piano Phone Challenge

Students are starting to get APPS on their piano phones now. It's fun to see them get colorful. Only one week left until a winner is declared.  APPS have been given for 9 days in a row of practice. I thought that would be the last one to go up but it was one of the first. Family mini recitals, memory, and composition are some of the other APPs given this week. I wonder who the winner will be?

Piano Phone Challenge Has Begun

Piano Phone Challenge started this week.

Nine of Cindy's Piano Studio students will earn eight apps for home practice, performance, memory, ear training, sight reading, book work, composing, and theory.  This month long challenge was created by Teach Piano Today.  They are soooo creative.  All I had to do was download the PDF files, print and laminate.

Students are still not sure exactly what this means for them; however, they will find out in the coming weeks as the apps start appearing on their phones.  The student or students with the most apps will have their picture in the paper with an article about the challenge.

Stay tuned for their progress updates....
