“Count Metronome” Halloween Practice Challenge

Sticking Around

It has been a great semester for Leslie’s Music Studio. I am already looking ahead and planning some exciting things for the studio for 2014-2015! Take a look:

  • Record an Album – after learning a number of pieces and completing lesson work, students will get to be the artist of their own CD! We’ll have a CD Release Party in the Park complete with ice cream, treats, and students’ recordings playing in the background.
  • Piano Olympics – a day of fun music theory games and friendly competition! A chance to bring students together and learn cooperatively after “training” in their private lessons.
  • Custom Music Journals – each student will receive a custom LMS music journal with different sections for keeping track of practice assignments, learning sheets, listening activities and journals, achievement records, and sheet music for composing. A great way to track lesson progress, and milestones.

I hope you’ll stick around to be a part of what’s coming up next for LMS!
