Refreshments  We need volunteers to sign up to bring snacks and drinks. Please let Judy know if you could help.  Thanks!

Judy has preparation sheets and maps available in the Music Room   By having an event to prepare for is a great motivational tool for your young person.  It’s fun and teaches them performing skills.  Be sure to be a part of the fun.  Come and support the students!


We are all looking forward to our performances with great anticipation.  A lot of hard work and many hours of practice have gone into the preparation for the Competitions and we can’t wait to do our best! 

Piano Purchase:  Many of you have asked us about buying a piano.  Please be careful about buying pianos from the classifieds. We will always refer you to a good reputable dealer and encourage the purchase of a good instrument.  If you need a piano-we can help.   Wow-what a great Christmas present for the family!


Thanksgiving is this month and we are all thankful for our students and their parents.  We appreciate your support and encouragement throughout the year.

Happy Thanksgiving to each of you and your families!  We are indeed thankful and blessed to have such nice people working with us to make a difference in our student’s lives.                                                              Judy and The GrandStaff!
