THINK SPRING!

Competitions!  Our Spring Competitions are in May!  The Piano Performance Party (for Pre-school thru 2nd grade) is Sat. May 11th at 11:00 AM.   The Junior Division is Sat. May 11th at 12:30 PM for 3rd-5th graders.  Both will be at the new Jacobs Music Hall, Doylestown.

Our Senior Division Competition (6th Grade and up) is Sat. May 18th at 1 PM at the new Jacobs Music Hall, Doylestown.

 

100 Day Challenge! If your student took part in the 100 Day Practice Challenge, be sure to look for their name in the April or May edition of Piano Explorer Magazine. We are proud of all of them!

 

Be sure your young person is involved and working hard.  Remember the work that is done to prepare for Competition results in great strides forward in our skills.

Plan now to attend-participate-and invite!  What fun!  Be a part of all the fun and motivational events we have at GrandStaff Studio.  Your young person will benefit greatly!

A wise comment was made not long ago about Competition and I would like to quote it:  

”It’s not so very important how a student does at Competition that matters, but the preparation leading up to it.”  In other words, greater advancement is made in our piano skills as we prepare for our performance.  We all need goals and reasons to strive toward our goal.  Competition provides that.  Beautiful ribbons are given in each category and two overall medals are awarded.

Piano Tuning   Have you had your piano tuned lately? Spring is one of the best times to have it done.  Do you have a metronome and a music dictionary?  We can help!  Ask for tuners names and numbers.  We have catalogs for metronomes and we have dictionaries here available or we can recommend a good music store where you can choose your own.

Why learn to play piano?  Besides learning beautiful music, piano lessons help build and strengthen coordination, verbal abilities, and abstract reasoning skills.

                                                        

                                               Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Springtime to all!

                                                     Be a part of all the excitement and fun!

                                                         We love teaching your children!
