So it's been a bit since anything was posted, but that is merely due to the fact that the studio has been so busy!
Last year, in the Fall, all of my Los Angeles students had fantastic Halloween recitals! Then everyone from Kansas to Colorado, to LA had amazing holiday performances!
So many of you grew through performing your recital pieces and were able to come back to your methods and technique books and make leaps and bounds with those.
In 2017, we all started preparing for upcoming workshops, competitions, and the Spring Recital! While the LA and Colorado recitals are yet to come, the Kansas City recital happened today! Both students did amazing as they performed along with the students of the Nancie Dalke Piano Studio in Overland Park, KS.
One of those KC students also competed in a workshop compeition last week with the Hughes Brother's Theatre in Branson, MO to rave reviews! In LA, a student just competed in the MTNA Romantic Festival Competition and did absolutely stunning in her performance!
With the upcoming Spring Los Angeles Recital on June 9th, the Summer Colorado Rectial July 28th, and my one and only senior recital this year in Colorado on July 30th, the studio is looking to have a fantastic Summer!
More updates coming soon!

Major shout out to all of my students performing around the US today and yesterday! We had our Colorado recital in Fort Collins today and my adult students Natalie, Brian, Ginny, Jeannette, Janell, and Regine rocked the house with their pieces! Then my student Steve killed it at his recital in Overland Park, KS. I got to see a video of his piano performance and part of his singing via Facetime! Oh technology how I love you so! Yesterday, one of my teens, Paige, totally blew her audience away with her renditions of "Think of Me" and "All Too Well". Thank you to ALL of you amazing musicians, what gifts you all shared this week:-)

It's that time again, recital time!!
To my Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Kansas students: Are you ready?! We've been working so diligently in our lessons for this moment so make these last couple weeks of practice before the show count! Everyone is polishing their pieces, doing practice runs in front of mock audiences, and working on those exercises I gave them to calm the nerves. So keep it up! May 14th will be here before you know it! I'm so proud of all of you and cannot wait to see everyone in person soon!
I also want to give a special shout out to my students (and professional musicians themselves) Brian V. and Natalie S. You both showed up big time at your gigs over the past couple months, Brian at the FoCoMX Festival with your original songs performing an acoustic set, and Natalie in collaboration with pianist Mark at your jazzy concert in March! I know for a fact that a lot of people LOVED your performances and cannot wait to see more of both of you!
To my LA students: Shout out to Diana C. and Skylar I. for rocking it in their respective recital and competition! I was present for both performances and I'm so, SO proud of you two for working through that nervous energy and coming through with strong and beautiful showings. Sharing your gifts with others is so rewarding and I hope both of you know how many people you affected by sharing yours!
And to my beginning LA kiddos, you guys are just blowing me away with how fast you are learning piano and singing along with it to boot! It's such an excting thing to be a part of your music education and I cannot wait to see how you all develop as musicians over the next few years.
And get ready all of my students, we are going to be working hard over the summer on fundementals and song prep so we can have fun playing our Halloween themed songs for your in-lesson recitals and participate in MTAC, MTNA, and parlour recitals come Fall!
Yay! Go Creativity!

What a wonderful December everyone had! I drove to Colorado with my hubby to teach in person lessons to all of my CO, WY, and NE students and then have an amazing holiday recital! And boy, you guys did not disappoint! What a WONDERFUL sharing of your gifts and talents! Then my KS student was able to perform at a local teacher's studio recital (a local teacher very close to my heart, Mom!!) at UNION STATION in Kansas City! He sent me a video and it was FANTASTIC! What a way to do your first recital! We had more firsts for my Los Angeles students too: one of my Eagle Rock students had his first recital at the Eagle Rock holiday recital and he totally rocked it out! And several of my other students had their own personal in-lesson holiday recitals for close family and friends. All of you did SO well and I am SO proud of everyone!
The New Year brings in new goals, and that is just what we have been working on in our first lessons back from the holiday break. Keep up the good work y'all!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! As we near the change of seasons, it's a great time to start thinking of what your activites for Fall and Winter will be. Make sure to consider music lessons or voice for acting as one of your opportunites! Played piano 15 years ago and have always wanted to return to it? This studio is warm and welcoming and perfect for the adult who might be a little hesitant to get back into creating music. Singer/Songwriter? Bring in those songs and we'll work the vocals as well as the instrumental side. I can help you create a set list and research opportunities to perform. Have a child who is showing interest in piano, but not sure how to start? Give me a call and we'll set up a lesson to see if it's the right fit for you and your son or daughter:-) Have an audition for a musical or opera you need to prepare for? I'm the coach for you! If you are an actor and keep getting feedback to speak louder/softer, speak up, or enunciate/pronounce your words, this is the studio for you! If you've wanted to work on reducing your accent I can help with that too!
Contact the studio today to set up some lessons and let's get started on realizing your dreams! Or if you know someone who can answer yes to any of the questions above, please pass my name along to them!

I just wanted to start out by saying our first full year in LA went by so fast and was a great success in the studio! With two awesome recitals in Colorado and finding a great space to teach at in Glendale, CA, I couldn't ask for anything more!
I wish you all a very Happy New Year and here's to more amazing music creation in 2015!
Colorado students: be looking out for emails about your next recital, The Spring Recital in April!
Los Angeles students: I now offer accent reduction and vocal coaching for acting!

Just a reminder to keep praciting hard because your Fall/Halloween in-recitals are coming up in just about a month! Don't forget you need to invite AT LEAST three people to come to your lesson time to hear you perform your two pieces AND costumes, of course, are always encouraged;-) See you at your lesson!

Those of you already in my studio know this! For new visitors, please read! The studio has relocated from Fort Collins, CO to Van Nuys, CA! Many of my Colorado students are staying with me via Skype lessons. I've been teaching online lessons via Skype and Facetime for almost a year now and they work great! So for those of you in Colorado who wish to take from this studio, give me a call or email me and we can set up a free Skype lesson to try it out!
For my LA interested students, please email or call to get my studio address for in-person lessons, or you are welcome to take lessons via Skype as well. The first half hour lesson is free.
Also, check out the new S.M.T. method that I was just certified in. It's a great technique for actors and musicians that need to memorize lines quickly and be confident in their comprehension of the script/music they just memorized!
Thank you all!

Everyone is hard at work on their recital pieces and I'm so happy with all the work each student is putting in! This year should be a ton of fun! Remember to those who are having the in-lesson recital (basically all students except adults) the studio can fit about 10 guests so please keep that in mind when inviting people! You must invite AT LEAST 2 people to come hear you:-) Costumes are optional but encouraged for those who celebrate Halloween. There will be refreshments after the performances.
Adults don't forget your October Jam Session is Sunday 10/28 with arrival time at 5pm and performing starting at 5:30pm. Please bring hors d'oeuvres to share with everyone. It will be a wonderful evening!
