I write in the morning... I get up early, surf and clear my head, clean my house and sit in the garden with notebooks, pencils, my cds and my great radio that I have had for over 20 years and start to write. It's essential for me to have a routine. Every serious writer writes every day, as well as any serious musician always practices, because you never know when inspiration will strike, and if you don't practice, it may never come.
Flea, in fact, practice every day... No matter how good you are, practice makes perfect they say...

Songwriter spotlight: Jim Stutz. Pictured here with three albums of material and counting! Jim continues to make progress and is currently working on a set. Jim has come a really long way to when he first started from scratch, years ago. I always enjoy playing tunes together and look forward to our next adventure possibly in a recording studio soon? Or at the next recital booked December 18th 🤔🤠 you can listen to Jim Stutz and John Capito on Spotify!
Sign up and get a free instrument! Acoustic guitar, ukulele, piano (melodica) or drum sticks and practice pad. Great gift idea. This holiday season give the gift of music.
Just cleaned up a customers guitar. I should have taken a before pic. Or maybe not! 😵 looking good now. 😎 no strings per the customers request.
Looking to hire a part time receptionist.
🎄 Gift idea for the upcoming holidays 🎄 Give the gift of music! Free guitar, ukulele, drum sticks and practice pad or a melodica for new students signing up! Great opportunity to get started with music lessons.
Doing a recording session with friends! Fun times :) I’ll post the final clips when they’re finished.
Noralynn on drums! Today we learned “Wrecking Ball” on piano. She played the whole tune!
Can anyone guess the name of this song? Hint: it has finger snaps in it.
A customer brought in a nylon string guitar with a broken tuning peg. We replaced the entire tuning peg system, cleaned the fretboard and polished the entire guitar. I then waxed the body and put new D’ Addario Pro Arte strings on. Big thanks to Jeremy Burgan for helping to take the tuners out and fix a wood splinter that was coming up. It turned out to be a pretty good job! I learned a bit.
The guitar itself was very interesting. It was handmade in Korea and had handwriting on the inside. It looked beautifully made, and smelled like a cigar box! There’s absolutely no information online about the guitar maker, almost as if it’s been scrubbed! The tuners were, however, from Japan! The guitar is named Operetta made in ‘09.
Happy Father’s Day everyone:)
Fun times at the Summer recital! I’m always so impressed with the talent and hard work that goes into each performance. See you at the next winter recital and possibly a stroll and savor performance?? Sign up sheet will be in our lounge!
This morning we taught a super fun music class at my daughters preschool. Kids are such natural musicians. I really think every single person can benefit from learning the gift of music.
