Works like a coffee punch card.  Parents initial each time they look at and read (must read the assignment book, not just initial the boxes) their child’s assignment book for the week. 

Then bring the card to your lesson and it will be punched. 10 punches = 5 piano dollars.

 You may continue to get new cards when yours is full.

FEBRUARY IS BEETHOVEN MONTH

BEETHOVEN WAS HARD ON THE

PIANOFORTE.

   In one performance, it was the job of the page turner to also remove strings that snapped, and untangle hammers AND turn the pages of

Beethoven’s piece.

——————————

The more you learn about Beethoven this month, the more Beethoven Bucks you will get. Ask for your Beethoven Packet.

BEETHOVEN WAS A CLUTZ.

   It was said of Beethoven “he rarely picked up anything without dropping or breaking it.” 

His apartment was a mess. 

He even had cuts on his face from shaving

carelessly.

BEETHOVEN WAS EASILY ANGERED

   He was known to throw a plate of food at a waiter. 

BEETHOVEN WAS CAPABLE OF

TENDERNESS

   He once consoled a friend who had lost a child and helped her grieve.

YEARLY STUDIO

CLOSURE:

NEW UPDATE:

There will be up to 5 weeks during the year where there will be no lessons. 

Your lessons will be made up as follows: 4 times during the year everyone has a 5 lesson month so this accounts for 4 weeks of studio closure.

You may also have 1 extra make-up lesson per year to make up for the 5th week.

 Stay tuned for dates as they will change from year to year.
