Starting preparation for the NSO Youth Fellowship Auditions today!

I am hearing a very talented new student of ours play with one of our pianists for the first time today as we begin preparation for the NSO Youth Fellowship auditions. So exciting to put great pieces together and I know he will do beautifully!

It reminds me again of just how lucky we are to have this beautiful Mason and Hamlin grand piano in our midst. It has changed our work environment so dramatically.

Having rehearsals and coaching in lessons with piano has made all the difference this year in our competitions and performances and we could not be more grateful!

Clip of the Week!

It’s Wednesday and it is time for your Clip of the Week!

I wanted to share another clip from our class the other week with James Stern. Enjoy 12 year old student Olivia Chen's first performance of Mozart's Sonata in G.

Bravo OIivia for performing both of your pieces so brilliantly for Mr. Stern! Mozart is so deceptively difficult and here you make it look easy!
