03-05-18 Rock Band Update. We are currently in rehearsal with two rock bands! Our performance will be Friday May 4 at Knox's Silver Valley. Our music is coming together nicely.

We are currently looking into finding teen singers from outside this studio to cover the vocal parts. I've reached out to a few colleagues. If anyone reading this knows of a music teacher with vocal students, or student(s) who might be interested please contact me for more information. (I would love not to be the lead vocalist, and you'd probably prefer that too.)

Songs to be performed are as follows. Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Hey Good Lookin', Smells Like Teen Spirit, Pork and Beans, Gloria, I Won't Back Down, Louie, Louie, All the Small Things, Imagine, Home, Come Together. We may also perform Superstition and Lady Madonna.

Please spread the word about this program. It is sure to be a blast. Like and join this FB page if you would like to stay informed about what's happening at the Reiser Music Studio. Visit the official Reiser Music Studio website by visiting

Cultivating Musical Talent Through Deliberate Practice Talent isn’t an arbitrary fairy Godmother that endows perfect, self-sustaining gifts upon a lucky few. Something must happen between talent and skill for a transformation to occur. Cue: deliberate practice.

Weather Event of 03-01-17

After being out and about I see the road conditions are quite bad. I'll be here. I'll keep the doors open if you want to come for a lesson today, but I'm siding on students staying home today considering how bad the roads are.


Weather Threat - January 16, 2017: We are taking it moment to moment today given the weather threat. As always we leave it up to parents to decide if the roads and weather are safe enough to travel. Please give me a call if you decide to stay home.


Parents, did you know? Student musicians learn to:

-Cope with pressure.
-Deal with criticism.
-Work even when they don’t feel like it.
-Cope gracefully with mentors’ decisions.
-Get back on the horse and try again.
-Cope with deadlines.
-Develop many ways to focus on goals.
-Learn the power of positivity.

What Music Looks Like in the Brain

This study reveals that we have a circuit in our brains designed to interpret music. "All cultures have music even if we don’t know why. So, while some researchers think music has no adaptive value and may have been simply a by-product of other mental abilities, like speech, that’s no longer a valid assumption."

I feel the need to thank everyone again at this time of year. This marks the 'round-about completion time of the studio's 5th year in business. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I love what I do! I am overjoyed knowing this business continues to be successful. I am honored to be a teacher for so many music loving people. In professional growth news, I am getting geared up to take another 6 credits in the next few years in order to renew my certifications through 2025. Learning new things and re-visiting topics to renew and update my skills is really refreshing and adds a lot to students lessons for their benefit. So all in all, thank you for your support. A special thank you goes out to Golden Ring Music for all their support and for providing my students the materials they need for lessons. Mary and Fritz are two wonderful, warm-hearted people who have done a lot for Manitowoc and a lot for me.

How to Motivate Your Child to Practice

This is well written and reflects my views on practicing. Main points are practicing should be goal oriented, goal driven and practicing for the intrinsic rewards. One addition I feel relevant is that the youngest kids do not need to practice every single day, but do make a routine out of it. Among the numerous challenges that parents face in handling children’s music lessons (choosing the instrument, finding a good teacher, etc.), getting kids to practice is the most daunting of all.

This Summers professional growth class in a nutshell...

Body Mapping - A study of adequate and accurate movement of our body's parts in the act of music making. It is based on the true mechanical understanding's of how our body moves and confronts our misunderstandings so that we may be equipped to avoid tension or injury. The benefits are tension free, springy, beautiful movements which in turn creates a beautiful sound from our instrument. 06/18/2015

I am pleased to announce the Reiser Music Studio has reached a new milestone. There are now 41 students taking lessons here. From the beginning 40 was the number I strove for. This puts me in a position of financial security, provides a peace of mind and keeps me plenty busy. These numbers will allow me to get back to school and renew my certifications with the state. I will even be able to begin scheduling vacations. (Not that I'll be able to afford to go anywhere, but at least I will have time off from time to time). I can't imagine having to tell people there are no available slots open, but that will soon be the new reality. I thank all past and present students and parents for your support. My dream has come true! 01/27/2015
