Piano Purchase: Some of you have asked us about buying a piano. Please be careful about buying pianos from theclassifieds. 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!
