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!

COLUMBUS DAY –The Studio will be OPEN on Columbus Day Oct. 10th. Thanks!

Please be reminded that tuition is due on or before the first lesson of the month.

Thank you so much for your faithfulness and understanding!


Fall Schedule  Our Group Theory Class is temporarily suspended. We hope to be able to resume groups next Spring. Thank you for understanding.

 

Performance Event  The date for our annual Fall Performance Event has been set! Please mark your calendars now and encourage your young person to press forward to be ready.

 Sat. Nov.12th @10:00 AM 

Event location: at Highland Park Camp Hall, Sellersville, Pa. (maps available). Ask your teacher about preparing a song. The teacher will have more details.

The Fall performances will not be judged. Our Spring competition will be a judged event. We hope you’ll be participating or attending! Sign up ASAP!


The ”Performance Event” will be a “dress-up” event-young ladies, please wear dresses-young men should wear long sleeved shirts. A tie is extra nice. Thank you!

 

Refreshments  We may need volunteers to sign up to bring snacks and drinks. Please let your teacher know if you can help. We may also consider “Grab and Go” bagged snacks.

We have helpful preparation sheets and maps available. By having an event to prepare for is a great motivational tool for your young person. It’s fun and teaches them poise and 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 Event and we can’t wait to do our best!  

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)

 

Instruments For Sale: We have an excellent Trumpet, Mandolin, and Flute for sale-all priced very reasonably. Ask J R 

 

 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 it is 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!
