I’m looking forward to our upcoming Spring Music Recital on June 7 at 2pm. It will be in our usual location, the auditorium of the Park Slope branch of the Brooklyn Public Library.
We have a great program of diverse music from folk classics to Suzuki standards to pop songs from Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, One Republic, jazz standards in the style of Frank Sinatra and film and Broadway soundtracks all played by kids ages 5 to 13.
The show is free and open to the public. You can see previous recital videos here.
Also, if you haven’t already signed up your child for summer lessons, I have some openings for our short summer session which runs 4 weeks in July from the 7th to 31st. More info.
I’m also offering music lessons via internet (Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts) over the summer and into the Fall too. This may be a good opportunity to continue practicing whilst at Grandma’s house.
Summer is usually the best opportunity for new students to join my private music studio. Once you are on my roster, if the fit is good for teacher, student and parents, I will make every effort to accommodate you on the school year schedule. I am incredibly grateful to have so many students who stay with me for years. This summer, I will be offering private and limited group lessons beginning July 7. Music lessons:
Monday through Thursday 10am to 5:30pm.
July 7 through 31, 2014
Lesson are $57 per half hour with an additional materials fee of $20 for the summer.
You can sign up for once per week or even 4 times per week for a super accelerated learning experience. The summer is a time for renewal, recharging and having some fun along with learning. With that in mind, I’ve designed a few summer fun-tastic ways to learn basics of music, ukulele, guitar, piano or songwriting. These music lessons are usually private, but I can accommodate small groups. See below.
For ages 4 to 5, I highly recommend starting with piano and basic music theory in a weekly 30 minute private lesson.
For ages 6-7, especially if you have had some prior experience with music instruction, we can work on guitar, ukulele, recorder, piano, songwriting etc.
For ages 8 and up, we can usually move much quicker and move into pop songs, Broadway, blues and basic jazz.
Group discounts are available – if you know of other children the same age and experience level, I can accommodate up to 4 children for group lessons.
If you are interested, you can register here. I will discuss specific scheduling with you.
We had our 10th recital hosted by the Brooklyn Public Library and it was a resounding success! Such a wonderful diversity of music, talent and focus. All my students pulled it together and presented their best.
I’ve posted all the videos on our YouTube Channel.
