Harmony Road I Holiday Recital, Dec.19, 2015

Harmony Road Spring 2016 semester started on January 4th but we are still reminiscing on the impromptu holiday class recital we had back in December.

We had too much fun at this informal recital.  

Students just finishing 14 weeks of Harmony Road I played Jingle Bells & Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars with BOTH HANDS!  

The perfect cadence was the holiday sing along! We celebrated the winter holidays with everyone's favorite tunes.  Moms, dads, & grandparents joined us, and we sang our heart out!

Holidays are over, but we are still singing and making music. :) How about you?

New Mozart Faculty Staff Dinner at Doppio Zero

New Mozart faculty & staff celebrated the start of the new year at  Doppio Zero Restaurant.

We ate. We laughed.  We drank.  We talked about music.  We talked about performing.  And we talked about teaching music. 

It was an amazing evening - the perfect start to another musical year at New Mozart.  

We're excited to start 2016 with renewed commitment to share our LOVE of music with our community.

Happy New Year everyone!

Would you forbid your child to speak until he learned how to read first?

This may sound like an absurd question, but this is how traditional, reading based piano lessons are taught.
In traditional piano lessons, note reading, posture, & technique are some of the most important components.
These are all wonderful things and necessary things to master eventually...,
