We strive for our students to be:
1. Lifelong learners who develop successful learning habits.
2. Creative and critical thinkers who will become effective communicators.
3. Responsible and respectful members of society who respect other cultures.
4. Able to set short-term and long-term goals and be able to see them through to their success. OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
It is of the utmost importance
Operating as usual
I will be out of the office without internet from June 4th to June 12th. During this time, my assistant, Hailey, will be answering the emails that come through. All lessons will resume next week on June 13th. I look forward to seeing you then! 🤗
I haven't posted any in a while, but this week I had one that was too funny not to post.
I love working with each of you, and I want to thank you for giving me the best job in the world.
Thank you for letting me share my love of music and the arts with you and your family.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Thank you all for allowing me to be apart of your family’s music education. I’ve done some amazing things in my career, but nothing compares to seeing everyone really come into their own through music. I have the best job ever and it’s all due to you!
And that’s a wrap for 2021!
I am so proud of all the students this semester. We had so many go up to the next level, start some pretty big pieces, get casted in some amazing productions, and performed in our first in-person recitals in two years! I am so excited for what is to come in the new year. (And we have some pretty big things!)
A reminder we are off for the holidays until MONDAY JANUARY 10th, 2022. This is for all students in Atlanta, Charleston, LA, and virtual. These off weeks are factored into your monthly tuition rate.
SPRING RECITAL DATES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
APRIL 30th, 2022 - Virtual Formal Recital (7A EST, 7P EST)
MAY 7th, 2022 - Los Angeles (10A PST, 12:30P PST, 3:30P PST)
MAY 14th, 2022 - Atlanta (10A, 12:30P, 3:30P)
MAY 21st, 2022 - Charleston (4P)
VIRTUAL MASTERCLASSES WILL BE ON THE LAST SATURDAY OF EVERY MONTH AT 7PM. This is a great opportunity to practice the pieces you’ve been working on in front of the other students and get some feedback! It’s a great way to build confidence and stay on top of practice assignments. These are not required for the majority, but are highly encouraged. If you have an audition competition, or live performance coming up the next month, you are required to participate.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year! Let’s make 2022 the best ever!
I am so proud of all who were able to participate today! Everyone did such a wonderful job!
The Atlanta crew has their recitals tomorrow! Due to COVID precautions set by the venue, we have much smaller groups. Since I haven’t seen some of these little ones ever in person, we did a little something special for the performers! 🥰
The kids have been condensed into two sections; 10 AM and 1 PM. The link to send your friends and family who could not make it is the same link/sign-on you use for your lessons.
I can’t wait to see you all!
That feeling when you wake up to iMessages from a 9 year old not happy you’ve been telling Santa she’s been “chilling” more than practicing. 😳🤣 🎅🏽🎄
This joke never gets old this time of year.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Halloween!
Great job, Ariana!
Five pianos to choose from and only 15 minutes to make a decision. We know the instruments prepared for the participants of the 18th Chopin Competition.
Similarly to the previous edition of the Chopin Competition, participants could choose from 5 pianos made by 4 companies: Steinway, Yamaha, Kawai and Fazioli. The decision concerning the instrument remains in force until the end of the competition – players cannot change the instruments during the consecutive stages. Participants had to make a decision within 15 minutes. Some of them used that time to try out all available instruments, and others decided to sit at a selected piano from the very beginning.
The most popular instruments among the participants of the 18th Chopin Competition are those produced by Steinway – they were selected by as many as 64 pianists (so around 75% of participants). 9 people selected a Yamaha piano and 8 a Fazioli piano. The least frequently played will be a Kawai piano, which will be used only 6 times in the first stage.
It is interesting that Steinway pianos have a longest tradition of presence in the almost 100-year-old Chopin Competition. During the first editions, there were also pianos by Bechstein, Bösendorfer and Pleyel. The choice of the instruments took place one day before the performance of a participant.
The smallest number of pianos to choose from (only 3 Steinways) was in 1965, and the largest, 7 instruments, in 1990. In 1985 Yamaha and Kawai instruments appeared for the first time in the competition, while since the 16th Chopin Competition young pianists have been given an Italian Fazioli piano to choose from as well.
I can talk your ear off for hours about the long and short-term developmental, psychological, intellectual, emotional, and physical benefits of learning an instrument. While I wholeheartedly agree with why learning an instrument is necessary, my absolute favorite reason is knowing the kids get to have moments like this.
A huge part of my job involves arts and crafts.

TFW you accidentally dress with the same vibes as your office.
Today’s office assistant is highly annoyed by the lack of theory homework submitted and the size of his “Free Lunch Friday.”
He would also like to point out his cubicle mate has spent the entire morning napping in sunshine yet they receive the same ration of treats for their work.
Today I bawled like a baby. Some of my students are on the autism spectrum and today was the last lesson with a student I’ve had for years and years. He’s going to the best teacher I know and I know this kid is going to continue to thrive.
Teaching privately is much different than teaching in classrooms. You see these kids every week, sometimes twice a week, on a one-on-one basis for years. You watch them grow up. You’re an ear for their troubles. You are their first longterm mentor. It’s such an important role you play in how they see and handle the world around them all while teaching them how to master something while focusing on the long game. I’ve always taken that role seriously.
So when a student leaves for college or because I feel they need something I can’t provide, I cry like a baby. And this sweet child, now teenager, painted me a beautiful painting which I’ll frame and I’ll cry like a baby every time I see it.
