“To play without passion is inexcusable!”


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,
Whew!  Spring recitals behind us, now, we press on to our Olympic theme for the summer to polish and quicken the skills we've worked on all year!  And it's time to look ahead to new horizons--Olympic and World themes for this summer, and great master-works for the fall!

To help us learn the lessons that Olympians learn--through their qualifying rounds--we'll speed up our skills and our thinking, and learn to qualify before we perform, for the maximum result of all our efforts!  And along the way, it will be much more fun to work in teams than live the lonely life of the single player!

This is our last week of lessons for the school year.  Next week I'll hear only those students who are playing in the huge piano festival on June 4-5.  It will be exciting, and worth the effort!  I have life-long memories from events such as this!  And now, you will, too!

We'll start summer lessons on Tuesday, June 7.  I hope you're signed up for the lessons and for one or two of our Olympic Game Days!  I'm making plans for a packed and fast-paced day!  Hope you can join us!!

For all the joy in  music-making,

Mrs. Buxton
