Happy 2019 and welcome to My Music Staff!

I hope everyone is having wonderful vacation adventures and I look forward to seeing you when lessons resume on January 5th. Here’s what’s new in the studio for 2019!

I am excited to start using My Music Staff to manage a lot of the studio’s administrative tasks. Here’s what this means for families:

You will receive an email with personalized login which will allow you to access your lesson schedule, attendance record, available makeup lessons, assigned repertoire, and even to track your practicing!

You will be able to login anytime, from any device here. (It is also in the dropdown of the “Studio” menu in the header…)

For me, this means everything will be in one place and not spread out over many spreadsheets and systems, which means I have more time to devote to teaching and lesson planning instead of to admin. Hooray!

Spring 2015 Lesson Scheduling

Update: The lesson schedule for spring semester is now set! If you have any questions or need to change lesson times, please send me an email.

Below are my available weekly teaching times for the 2015 spring semester.

Please send me an email with a list of lesson time options and indicate whether you will be taking an hour, 45-minute or 30-minute lesson.

Coming Soon…Spring 2015 Scheduling!


Please check back here next Tuesday, December 16th at 10:00am for a calendar of my 2015 home studio teaching availability.

Once the calendar has posted, please send me an email listing a few times that would work for you. The sooner I hear from you, the better I will be able to accommodate your preferences!

Lessons will resume the first week of January!


2014 Celebration of Excellence

A lovely time was had by all at the Music Development Program Celebration of Excellence! The evening featured a recital by students who had earned top marks in the state of California on Practical assessments, remarks by Dr. Janet Lopinski who came all the way from Toronto for the occasion, and a presentation of certificates to all those who earned top scores in Practical as well as Academic subjects.


Congratulations to Diana, Rebecca and Sarah who earned top scores in California on their piano assessments last year, and to Riona and Julianna for earning top scores in California on theory assessments!
