Reopening  Our reopening has been successful thanks to our wonderful teachers, all our faithful families and cooperation with all health and safety recommendations. 

Welcome to all new students!  We are pleased to have you join our musical family!

We hope all of you are enjoying the cooler Autumn weather and falling into a regular routine of piano practice in spite of all the challenges and circumstances. 

Fall Schedule  Our Group Theory Class is temporarily suspended.  We hope to be able to resume groups in the Winter or next Spring.

COLUMBUS DAY –The Studio will be OPEN for Columbus Day Oct. 12th.  Thanks!

Competitions   We hope to resume Competitions next Spring.  Details to be announced. Ask your teacher about preparing a song for our Spring Competitions in May 2021-date to be determined. Please encourage your young person to press forward to be ready.


Violin (Strings) Instruction   Miss Kadence is our Violin instructor.  Please ask for details.

Piano Purchase:  Some 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.   Wow-what a great Christmas present for the family! 

There are lots of great pianos at Jacobs Music. (Also ask about a rental program)


Piano Practice: 100-Day Challenge!  

GrandStaff Piano Studio 100 Day Challenge is on hold but will be conducted later on in the semester if possible.

Our students practice for 100 consecutive days to be eligible for a Pizza Party with prizes and games-and have their names submitted to the Piano Explorer magazine. (If possible)  The Challenge dates will be announced later in the Fall. Remember-Practice does not make perfect-Perfect practice makes perfect!


Practice Practice Practice Be sure to help your young person maintain their practice time at home by scheduling specific times for practice.  Right after supper is great because no play time is being interrupted and its easy to go right to the piano while everyone is gathered together.  Appreciation for their efforts can then be expressed easily and requests can be made for favorite songs.    

Christmas! We will begin Christmas music this month, so if you have unfinished books from last year, bring them in.  We will also have a very comprehensive selection of Christmas and supplementary music available in the office.  These books make great Christmas gifts or they are very useful as motivational tools for your young person.  Have a look!      Thanks!                                                                             

Happy Fall!  Isn’t the cooler weather great!

                               We love teaching piano!
