I'm very excited about piano this year.  I think we're off to a great start.  Good Job!!

All piano students will play and sing their vocal scales.
VC - We'll get started next week.  This week's sessions were more introductory.

Chamber and RC - I was very proud of you this week. I believe learning to play your vocal scales will improve your pitch accuracy when performing them.

All piano scales are due Oct. 11th.  You may begin checking them off during class, or before or after school.

The Piano Lab is open to all vocal students at 7:45 am.
