Last night a few of my students, parents, husband (yes the goofy one in the back), friends, and I walked in a parade during our city’s September Street Fair. It’s become an annual event for my studio as a way to not only keep my name in the community but to foster a sense of community within my studio.
I’m going to share a bit more on this in an upcoming post!
But for now……
: Lesson planning advice from The Curious Piano Teachers.
: I love this: No one likes sitting alone.
: America’s Test Kitchen’s former beloved host Christopher Kimball has a new venture. Milk Street will bring recipes of the world to home kitchens making them easier and more accessible. Their bow-tie logo is beautiful, simple, and genius. Perfect in my opinion. Check out the site or Facebook page.
: My love of organization is leading me to share Sara’s way of organizing music game folders and my way of organizing student files.
: Bob’s Red Mill makes great products. However, I always hated that I either have to use chip clips to seal the bags or put their plastic bag into another Ziploc plastic bag. Bob’s is finally introducing resealable bags! Yahoo!
: I completely missed National Guacamole day last week! Oh, man! One of my all-time favorite foods. Marcela Valladolid’s Game-Winning Guac’ is still my favorite.
: Pentatonix + Dolly Parton in Jolene. Sweet.
: Short, clear, and to the point. That’s how Bradley Sowash writes on his blog and in his column for Clavier Companion. He captured me recently with “Dot Spots”. His partner-in-crime, Leila Viss wrote an article for Music Teachers Helps Blog highlighting an article on Non-Professional Books That Have Made Us Better Teachers. I’m looking forward to checking out their book suggestions.
This dynamic duo (Bradley and Leila that is), have a webinar coming up on Monday you might want to check out. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

I’m off now to my own piano lesson. Yep, that’s right, I’m still learning and always will be!
