We hope everyone had a great October and Halloween!
We have some exciting updates and upcoming events to share with you all.
Incredible progress has been made in our studio location. From knocking down a cement wall to creating our very own stage in our recital hall, the space looks completely different from how it did originally. Below, you can click on the Studio Location Progress photo to watch a video of our progress so far.
Congratulations to our Student of the Month, Luke!
Luke turned 5 years old in August and has been studying under Anna Zimmer for 5 months. Luke has performed in one of our Middle C Music recitals and he had his first experience with auditions for the State Talented Music Program in October. Luke has learned and performed "Goodness of God" by CeCe Winans, "The Mandalorian" by Ludwig Göransson, and we are currently studying "Nuvole Bianche" by Ludovico Einaudi.
"Luke is such a fun student to have in my studio. He is always making me laugh and keeping me on my toes. Luke is my youngest student that can read music and he also has perfect pitch - the ability to identify any musical note after hearing it, without reference to other notes. We break our lessons into theory, ear training, rhythm, and repertoire which keeps Luke engaged during lessons. I'm honored to be Luke's teacher and excited to see where music will take him..."
- Anna Zimmer (Owner/Flute/Piano Instructor)
You can see Luke here on our website.
We also want to highlight our student, Paxton, who recently made it into talented music! Paxton did a phenomenal job for his testing rounds, and even scored perfectly in the first round. We are so proud of your hard work and consistency, Paxton!

To make this event even more special, we encourage you to bring any size or gender children's coat to contribute to our cause.
