KEEP YOUR LESSON TIME YEAR ROUND TO AVOID ADDED REGISTRATION FEES.
DON’T RISK LOOSING YOUR FAVORITE LESSON TIME!
We do ONLINE, LIVE (in Broomfield and University Hills, Denver) and In-Home live lessons. With the Summer coming and lots of cooped up kids wanting to get into lessons, there has been and will continue to be lots of new enrollments. That means lots of our teachers are already full. It would be so sad if somebody leaves for summer, and calls us back in August and we have no spots. That’s what we want to avoid. So, remember, if you’re a current student or if you’re new and want to join us, there are a few ways (below) on how we could help you keep your day and time with your teacher after summer and avoid having to pay another registration fee in the Fall. Also, please be kind to your student’s brain! It’s extremely important to have consistency in learning when playing an instrument. It takes massive brain power to attain profiency and our brains appreciate all the help they can get! We are happy to report that almost all families stay active with their lessons throughout the summer, usually at their regular weekly time. A LOVELY gift to you AND especially to your child!
We have 3 great options for you.
- You’re welcome to Zoom in for your lesson at times pre-arranged with your instructor.
- You’re welcome to talk to your teacher about having longer lessons for certain weeks in the summer to makeup for lost time. Some families take only 2 one hour lessons per month throughout the summer to keep their spot and to maximize the student’s learning. Or mix-n-match months/length of lessons for the summer to equate to their regular weekly lessons. Please check with your teachers.
- You can sub lease your spot to a family member or friend. Most of all, enjoy your summer. Go to the mountains, travel, whatever. Have a great time! But don’t lose your spot with your teacher by withdrawing because…. YOU WANT TO KEEP THAT SPOT, especially the prime spots between the hours of 3:30 -7:30. Those are the times that are in the most demand. So, take advantage of our summer make up options. Contact the office if you’d like to chat, and maybe come up with some creative options. It is the kindest thing you can do for yourself or your child to keep lessons going throughout the Summer!

SMILE George Grady
What instrument(s) do you play?
I play the piano
How long have you taken lessons?
I have been taking piano lessons since I was four, although I took a break for about 2 years when I was 12 years old.
Who are your favorite musical artists and composers?
My favorite musical artist is Chopin because his music is so creative, unrestricted, and beautiful.
What are your other hobbies and interests, besides music?
I love to play golf, it is one of my favorite things to do.
My favorite food is Sushi.
What is the coolest thing you’ve learned in your lessons in the past year?
The coolest thing I’ve learned in my lessons is how to play the minute waltz, because it is very fast and difficult to play.
What would you recommend to other students who are learning to play an instrument?
I would recommend to students learning to play an instrument to play the music that they love, because it makes playing an instrument 100x more fun. Also, I’d suggest working hard on technique because it makes music much easier to play.
See George at age 9 playing his own song Sonatina by googling “Creations Concert Clip”. The chamber orchestra, Sphere Ensemble, arranged and performed the piece in the 2015 Creations Concert. We will likely hear George’s newest original song at this year’s Creations Concert and at one of the Performance Classes.
