I currently have a studio of 18 students.
My piano students consistently win scholarships, competitions, and receive high marks in festivals.
Students are not required to participate in competitions or festivals, but are encouraged to do so.
Some students prefer pop music, and that’s OK. I do like to follow the standard repertoire. I use a combination of Faber, Schaum, Alfred and Carol Matz. For pop music I prefer arrangements by Chrissy Ricker.
Online students participate in virtual master classas and video recitals if they so choose.
Most of Mary’s harp students are adults, with one 5th grader (who is as mature as any adult).
Harp speciatlies include hand position, tone, and good practice techniques.
Adult harp students are not required to participate in recitals, although they are encouraged to do so. Most adult harp students already play at hospitals or in church.
