Getting Little Kids to Move, Even in Piano Lessons
In the 10 years of teachings in the studio and previously working with kids at churches, schools and in the community, I've learned that little kids have a bit of trouble sitting still for a time f. They are wiggly and squirmy, as is their nature. So as a piano teacher I need to know when they need to get more of their "sillies" out in a ways help them focus better. So during the lesson we sing and move. Wanted to take a minute to share some of the songs that I hope will help
Must admit that more students are wanting learn how play super hero songs than ever. After researching and purchasing some options, students are really enjoying the movie music. They are even asking for more modern music of classic hero's. Since the Marvel Comics and D. C Comics are becoming more popular, students are wanting to learn more about the music. That is exciting and even inspiring. So I decided to create a one page arrangement of the Avengers Main Theme, which I'm
Happy Birthday Potentials Music
Keep forgetting to share that Potentials Music turns 10 years old this month. I forgot what day it started. I'm humbled and blessed over these years to help musicians and actors succeed to their ultimate potential. Praise God. Next month I will have been doing the business for 4 years FT. Again humbled. During the 10 years we've been blessed to work and continue to work with voice, piano and acting students. Plus had opportunities to serve in our community: as a an accompanis
Must admit that my son and I are addicted to the show, yet we still have at this point 3 more shows to finish off the 2nd season. I know we're a bit behind, yet we're trying. We are really enjoying the story line as the Mandaloran journeys to take a creature from danger to find freedom for his little "friend". The locations, props, sets, costuming, characters and even the music are phenomenal. The composer of the music Ludwig Gorransson, has written music for many movies, inc

Ben Solo Theme
This year I've had more students ask for simpler arrangements of Super Heroes and Villain songs. After researching was not able to find as many as I thought would be out available. So I've had a chance to write out an simpler arrangement of the Ben Solo (Kylo Ren)Theme. Keep the arrangement in the same key of G, yet made it easier without the octaves in both hands for smaller hands at this point. You will find the song in the Piano Music Section of the website. Hope it inspir
How To Train Your Dragon Arrangements
This year I've have a few students state their interest in learning how to play the Main Theme to How To Train Your Dragon called Test Drive. At this point a Easy Piano book called How to Train Your Dragon Music from the Motion Picture through Hal Leonard is all that I can find at this point for our piano students. Yet it's a bit big. A few weeks ago I found an arrangement that I've been teaching a bit the past couple of week that has the simple melody, plus a few chords at
With Valentine's coming up, wanted to take a moment to share what the studio door looks like. I wanted this year to create a type of crossword puzzle option that I believe is very important for everyone. We have been living in a crazy time where it's easy to forget who we are. Don't want to sound like Mufasa, where his "spirit" reminds Simba who he is, yet thought people needed to know how valuable they are. I hope that you find inspiration in seeing who we truly are.
