Students of the Month - March - Kenny and Sam

Yea, Kenny! You are Bemus Point's March's Student of the Month again!  Kenny's tip for beginning pianists is to consider it as one of your chores, to practice slowly and practice at a set time.  Kenny is right.  If you will think of piano practice as something you do, like brushing your teeth, making your bed, etc. then you will be successful because it will become part of your daily habits.

Congratulations to Sam for practicing, being prepared, having his written work done, having all his books at his lessons, and having a great attitude during the month of March.  Other students consider for Lakewood were: Brynne, Mallory, and Ethan.

Sam's tip for beginning pianists is Let yourself enjoy playing piano. Instead of having as a chore you do because you have to.

Since this is Sam's first time as Lakewood's Student of the Month, I'm including his interview here so you can get to know him.

Congratulations to Dani.  She got to the piano everyday this week.  Her piano lesson showed the progress.  Great job, Dani!
