In a letter recently sent out to all current and prospective students:
Dear ever-hardworking students and parents,
As many of you know, my husband and I have found a suitable single family home in a great, centrally located neighborhood which we can base the piano studio and our family out of for (hopefully) years to come! We are very excited about the upcoming move, and finally at a point in the process where we can share the address with you. It is right off of MD-32, near MD-32/I-97 (near Ft. Meade/Odenton).
My new address, as of August 28, will be:
XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX
Millersville, MD 21108
With this comes a change in studio management which I’ve been debating for quite some time now. I would like to start phasing out in-home lessons; ideally, by October 1st, everyone will be coming to the studio for their lessons. This frees up a lot of my time from driving, and allows me to teach more students–and the more students our studio has, the more fun group/social activities we could provide for our children! For most of you that will be affected by this change in policy, I have already discussed this with you after lessons recently. Please let me know any concerns or questions you may have pertaining to anything!
Just to give an idea of how this works: there shall be the main studio area, where the lesson will be taught. As per studio policy, parents are strongly encouraged to sit in on the lesson to be able to help their children’s practice efforts at home. There will be a separate waiting room (complete with TV, books, study table, seating, and eventually a computer) in which the next family can wait if they arrive early, or for a sibling to wait and be able to do homework while waiting for their turn.
Also, there will be a housewarming sometime in September, which you are all invited to, so keep an eye out for that e-mail with details!
Hope everyone’s summers have been fantastic and continues to be relaxing for just a few more weeks,
See you all soon,
