Gearing up for the Fall Semester!
Wednesday, August 14, 2019 by Christina Shimp | Uncategorized
Summer is moving a little quickly for my taste. The stores are already putting out their Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas merchandise! The kids are getting ready to return to a new school year in a few weeks and our summer break from piano lessons will be over before we know it.
In July I attended the National Keyboard for Pedagogy Conference just outside of Chicago Il. Pedagogy is a fancy term for teaching piano. It was four days crammed with a ton of ideas, new and old. I'm still sorting through everything. And I came home with more piano books than I should have purchased but that just means new and exciting repertoire for your kids! One of my favorite parts was meeting some of the people that actually compose the music that your children are playing. (see my Facebook page for photos) Carol Matz, Christopher Norton and Diane Hidy to name a few.
For my existing students, the deadline for registration is tomorrow, August 15th. But I am also accepting new students for the 2019/2020 Academic year.
