“To play without passion is inexcusable!” Beethoven


Imagine the fulfillment that comes from music-making with your own skills!

Imagine the joy of making music with others and sharing it with your family and friends!

Dear Students and Families,

Our big weekend is finished, and the teachers who heard you students enjoyed your playing very much (as you could tell from your comments)!   Many of you scored well on your theory tests, as well, and we will soon reinforce the areas where there was some difficulty.

I mentioned some time ago a thrilling problem this year on our recital weekend: three of my long-time former students are receiving their degrees: a Doctorate in Piano, a Law Degree, and a Nursing Degree.  

Since I received no urgent requests for a Saturday recital, we will have all the recitals here, upstairs, on Sunday, May 17.  You can read the times in the announcement column, and then please let me know ASAP your requested time and the number of family members you would like to bring.  We always have a "packed house" here, but think of the recitals as "intimate" this way!

Please note the slight correction in the summer music camp dates in the announcements bar.  Graduating senior Kaylee Mansfield will be our art director for our "The Art of Music" camps.  This theme is always a favorite, and we learn so much about musical playing!  I hope many can join us!!  Registration will begin next week.

Note that we have two more weeks of lessons, as we conclude just before Memorial Day.  We'll polish our recital pieces, and look ahead to some summer adventures in music.

​Please notice that the summer lessons information is up.  Just click on the tab for a description and email me your requests.

For all the joy in music-study,

Mrs. Buxton
