Another week of parent & student fun!
Parent Week 2021
This week is one of my favorite traditions here at Lily Music Studio. Yes, it's a lot of planning and preparation on my end, but I just love to see the students sharing this time with their parent! Kids love to show what they know and it's especially meaningful to them to share their knowledge with someone they love.
Activities during Parent Week 2021 included games, duets, performance time, rhythm cups, and a chance for students to teach their parent. Many parents now know how to play a scale or pentascale!
Fun, new additions this year included photo props (see above) and a little gift that reflected our theme for 2021-2022, Bringing Color to the World With Our Music (see below).
Thank you to all our studio parents who joined us for the special studio tradition!

An exciting start to 2021-2022!
Wow! What an eventful beginning to a fun, new year! We're still brimming with anticipation and excited for all the fun things ahead!
The theme for this new year of flute and piano lessons is "Bringing Color to the World With Our Music."
Students were excited to receive new music for the year!
September group classes taught students about the origin of the music staff and a little about the Medieval Era of music.
Games, as always, are a regular part of our studio curriculum and students are always interested to see what we'll play next!
Here's to a COLORFUL year ahead!

Summer Fun 2021!
Summer piano and flute lessons are always a good time to explore new music, play games, and try out new activities. These students enjoyed playing interesting, new pieces on the piano. We especially enjoyed the dinosaur themed songs!
Dinosaur themed (and other) games were a hit with students and helped them solidify music skills and knowledge.
To help students learn more about rhythm and keeping the beat, and just to have fun, we did a lot of rhythm cups this summer!
Overall, we had a great June and July and can't wait for more fun to come in the new school year!
