Have a look at our practice challenge to see how you can move from a white belt to a black belt!
Over 700 years ago, Ninja's were Japanese warriors who trained from a very early age (just like many of the students here). They had to use their eyes and ears to be stealthy spies, be flexible (like our fingers do) and train very hard to develop their art. May we be inspired by these training habits!
Students now have some Holiday selections to work on for this weeks rehearsal of the
Rockin The Practice Challenge!
They will be getting the challenge at their lesson this week. The challenge is to:
Rehearse for 15min on:
Friday morning before school
Sunday morning before breakfast and
Monday evening before bed
The challenge starts after this weeks lesson, and they MUST have a parent initial the week 1 boxes in order to be entered in the challenge for great prizes.
Parents - please support them by reminding them of the challenge details. Pro Tip: hang the challenge on a bedroom door or a fridge or location they visit often (ie. stick on their ipad) throughout the next 4 weeks as the challenge gets harder as we go!
If your piano has not been tuned in a year, time for a tune-up! Deborah McCann is an excellent Piano Tuner I recommend.
Guitar students, if you have not changed your strings in a year...now is a good time to do so! Acorn music can affordably do this for you, or if you get new strings I can send you a YouTube video to help you at home.
Playing on well-tuned instruments is important for ear-training, and sounding great! :D
Thank you to all the students, parents and grandparents that showed up for the studio recital! It was a cozy and festive evening of Christmas tunes.
