We're continuing our celebration of Summer's End (it isn't QUITE back-to-school season, is it) with an online recital for students!
Returning teacher Colleen Carney of the Carney-Terrell duo will be teaching piano students onsite throughout the summer. Colleen received the competitive Ellis Duo Award from the National Federation of Music Clubs in March 2019 in Jackson, MS, and performed at the Biennial Convention in Jacksonville, FL. She has been working towards her master's degree in piano at USC and joins us for this summer as a special guest teacher. Lessons with her are a great opportunity to learn more about duets and collaboration for students of all ages!
Our on site lessons will follow current CDC guidelines, recommendations from MTNA (Music Teacher's National Association), and the Oregon Governor's Office. Check out our awesome set up with a sanitation station, student piano, close up live stream of each hand position on the TV, and teacher piano spaced more than 6ft apart. Not pictured: large game mat for student kinesthetic & music theory breaks. Ready to give it a try? Register now and select an open time for your first lesson! Be sure to complete the pre-lesson clearance form the day of your on-site lesson.

After the recital, please expect to listen to and respond to a minimum of three performances. Use the form below to tell Bonnie what you thought! Positive feedback will be passed on to performers, any constructive criticism will be kept confidential.
Well, I admit this year's recital is very different than I expected, even back in January. In this issue of Beats Bulletin newsletter, read all about our online participation options (live or recording exchange) and our SPECIAL GUEST, my personal teaching hero, Andrea Dow, who will be joining one of our recital sessions.
Have you been considering music lessons and * BAM * the world changed?! We have many ways to be involved musically through Maestro Music Academy (hint: zoom isn't the only option).
Traditional lessons are available through the now-familiar Zoom app. We've been using Zoom for lessons during snow closures, holidays, summer travel, etc for the past five years and have great resources to use even for beginners. Are you ready to progress past self-teaching through youtube? Send us a recording and we'll critique it and send you one in return with personalized techniques for improvement. Want a completely self-paced community-oriented way to experience music? AdaptiveU includes courses challenging you to learn about Beethoven, share music from your balcony, learn how the brain learns, and more!
At anytime you may log into the student portal by enrolling at www.maestromusiclessons.org/register and searching for an open lesson time with one of our staff! You'll be using zoom and our repertoire through screen share for the first lesson. We'd love to "meet" you!
