Here is the January/February Edition of Accent Notes. The following is the text from the Newsletter just in case you have a difficult time reading the image above.
Welcome to those who joined the Accent Studio Family in November or December! Welcome to: A. Smith, S. Smith, and E. Ternes. We are happy to have you as a part of our studio!
What a great Christmas Program we had this year! Twenty students participated and they all did so great! They varied in age from 5 to 16. We heard many of our favorite Christmas tunes and some new ones. We even had a sibling duet! Thank you to everyone who played and attended. A special thank you to those who brought cookies for everyone to enjoy!
New addition to the studio
This year I am adding something new for each f my students. They will now all receive a subscription to the Piano Explorer magazine. This is something I used to get as a young piano student and always looked forward to it. It comes out ten times a year (one issue for May & June and one issue for July and August). If your child finds a particular article interesting, they can go to pianoexplorer.net and click on “Student Page” for videos and more information about the features of the issue. There are two opportunities for students to be in the magazine. They can either earn the 100 Day Practice Challenge or compete in the composition contest. I will talk more about these in the upcoming newsletters.
Important Upcoming dates
There are no breaks scheduled for January or February. Our next scheduled break is for Spring Break March 19-23.
