Happy Healthy Safe New Year 2022! We hope each of you had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and wonder if perhaps your young person had an opportunity to play the piano at some gatherings or celebrations.

All of us at Grand Staff Studio want to thank you for all the gifts and cards and well wishes that you so sweetly and generously bestowed upon us! We’re very appreciative and grateful to all!


MLK Day YES-we are open and lessons will be held Monday Jan. 17th.

December Performances! Congratulations to everyone who participated and performed in our Holiday Piano Performance Festival Event despite the challenges. The music was very lovely and everyone enjoyed it greatly. The performers were poised and well-practiced. It was a great learning experience for all the students and the audience was appreciative for the talent and hard work. We are so proud of you! Thank you again to all the parents and volunteers who worked so hard to help make the event so successful.

Keyboard Adventures- Our Second 9 week Semester of Keyboard Adventures will start on Thursday March 17 and ends on Thrs May 12th  More info later.

Snow Alert! Our policy for bad weather is simply this: We are always here and usually open. If you can get here safely, we will teach-but please use your good judgment about safety and road conditions. Our tuition system is set up so that you can miss four or five lessons per year and still have not lost any time that you’ve paid for. We want your child here safely! 

Now that your student is back in school, please establish a specific time in the day for piano practice. Anything that is done “hit or miss” usually ends up being a failure. Your child’s success at piano depends on help from you with practice scheduling. As we’ve said before, after supper is a good time. Give them your attention as a listener or helper if they will allow. This kind of time spent with your child really pays off.

Competitions Let’s press forward with our goal of being ready for Spring Competitions and Performances. The date is set for Saturday May 7th at the Highland Park Hall. Be preparing now!

Important: Please remember that tuition is due on the first lesson of the month. Thanks!

A famous quote about practice: “What we Hope to do with Ease, we must first Learn to do with Diligence”.

Thank you again for your efforts on behalf of your child. We appreciate your help, encouragement and support.

Long after the toys of childhood are forgotten,

the gift of music will remain.

Happy, Safe and Healthy New Year 2022! Make daily Piano practice a resolution!

 We love teaching your children!
