Hello Parents,

Just a reminder, students don't need to bring bubbles to class. I have a set for the class to use. You can keep it next to your piano at home. Please DO have them bring their OPENED homework book and songbook with them each week.








Celebrate Connection



A few ideas to bring playfulness to practice time!

  • - Play Kit Kat Keyboard with your elbow!
  • - Lay on the ground (or upside down on the couch) when you sing Bubble Hands, and wiggle your fingers as you sing along with the CD.
  • - Play Say Say Oh Playmate with your family or teach some friends. Don't forget to use the CD as you sing and play along.
