May 9— Mother’s Day! Wishing all of our Moms a wonderful day!

May 31— Memorial Day— No lessons scheduled


Charles and I are on the path to being fully vaccinated.
As we continue to follow the news about Covid 19, we are heartened to hear that Maryland and Montgomery County are reducing infection rates.

We want to get everyone back to in-person lessons as soon as we feel it is safe for us and you. Of course, we will maintain the ability for students to take remote lessons if preferable.


While we can’t gather for performances right now, it’s a good idea to ask your young performers to play a finished piece for a friend or relative. The performance can be “live,” or you can make a video to send. 

It’s a lovely way to get them to polish a piece!

Student Referrals

Thanks to all of you for your continued support in a difficult time. The children have been truly resilient and we have adapted well to online teaching.

We currently have students from Washington DC to Long Island, NY! If you know of anyone who might like to join our studio—of any age or geographical location, please reach out with our contact information.

Will Online Piano Lessons Really Work for Me or My Child? by Wendy Stevens

Oliver, Jane and Charlie

We recently reconnected with former
piano students who are now living in
the U.K. Jane, the mom, wrote that
Charlie is currently at the Leeds Conservatoire
working for his Master’s in Composition. 

“Music has become even more central
to his life and is his passion and solace.”

“Charlie still remembers Charles introducing
him to a basic blues scale and being blown away
that with that knowledge he could write songs!”

Oliver is at King’s College, London,
pursuing a Bachelor’s in Biochemistry
while waiting for his classical ballet
training to resume.
