Friday Finds #187: Doodles



Looking for an alternative to Zoom for your online lessons? Here’s a really detailed review comparing Muzie and Rock Out Loud Live (Clinton Pratt | Piano Sensei)



A friend recently told me about a book of short pieces she’s going to use this year called “Doodles” by Alison Mathews. I immediately checked them out and have already purchased the digital download myself!

While researching it, I came across a really excellent review that will give you a close look at the product. Read the review at

It was actually a bit of a struggle to find where to purchase the digital download so I’m going make your life a whole lot easier:

Ever since my studio moved into our new home last year, I started asking students to remove their shoes. It’s not always a pleasant thing, so I decided to buy shoe covers and small “announcement” holder to place in my entryway. That way, students can choose which they prefer – shoes or no shoes (and I will just hope the stinky feet ones chose the former ha! 🙂 )

Disposable Shoe Covers

P.S. A shout-out to Jennifer Foxx who I saw mention this somewhere online!
