Wow… it’s been way to long! All events have been updated on our website. @audreyspiano on Instagram has been keeping track of all the happenings in the meantime.
Studio Closed: March 17/18/19 (1 of 4 for 2020)
PLEASE NOTE: After much deliberation we have decided to drop the studio from Piano Guild Auditions. The cost/effort is no longer equal to the interest. We’ve had a great couple of decades, though! Perhaps we will revisit it in the years to come.
NEW: Student Hall of Fame!
We’ve had contests over the past several months. The teacher chose the winners for November (Stacy), December (Andrew) and January (Nolan) based on criteria that each student knew about – keeping practice charts, maintaining a solid repertoire list and most especially – cooperation at lessons. February (Harper) and March (TBD) are different – these are creative contents with the students themselves being the judges.
Summer Tours and Teaser Show
We’ve been doing something new for the past several summers – small recitals at Senior Centers! Also we were privileged to perform in a Teaser Show the morning of our Piano Recital in the Atrium of the Arnot Mall. We may use a similarly scheduled format for our Summer Tour this year! And perhaps even a change in venue from Senior Centers to Rehab Facilities – Like Broad Acres, The Green Home, and The Carleton in Wellsboro. Suggestions welcome!

27th Annual Piano Recital:
—Saturday, January 19 – Elkland, Venue TBD
1) Our Summer Tour ends in Westfield tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it with eager anticipation with 11 students performing. It was such a blast that next summer I hope to plan 3 stops and have concert tour t-shirts to wear! If anyone has ideas for new places, please let me know!
2) Our Annual Event: Planning for January 2019 – possibly straying from our traditional second Saturday at the theatre and picking up January 19 at a more local venue.
3) Studio closings. There will be NO LESSONS on the weeks noted below. And looking past that, I will be open on Tuesday January 1 (holiday), but if you would like a switch, please just let me know. I will remind you about this as we get closer.
