I cannot wait to make these fudgy chocolate brownies – oh my.
Wow, what an incredibly beautiful late 19th-century pianoforte | A Piano that Survived the Wrecking Ball Now a Time Machine to NY’s Gilded Age.
After 5 years of not using a mousepad with my studio desktop, and wearing off the top of my (luckily cheap) desk, I realized I should probably get a mouse pad. Isn’t it cute? I’m a sucker for teal. Continue reading
Canva made a big announcement this week. They’re introducing Canva Print. You can now order print items from your Canva designs. This could be a great tool for creating postcards for student birthday’s, posters for recitals, fliers for marketing, and more!
How one teacher does rotating lessons, explained in detail.
My husband and I haven’t drunk pop (or “soda” depending on where you’re from) in years. Our beverages of choice most of the time are water and unsweet tea. On occasion, I drink a single cup of hot tea and love using this tea stick. Continue reading

I’ll admit, I’m not the teacher that is always up on all the “music/teaching” apps out there. Part of me can be a teensy-weensy bit slow at keeping up on that end. I was, however, happy to add to my iPad this week, TuneTrain especially for students who love to compose.
