Piano Class - Thursday, Feb 27, 6:30-9:30PM

If you live in Massachusetts, consider attending the Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People class at Minuteman Technical Vocational School in Lexington, MA. Every student gets their own keyboard, it's the most affordable class I teach, and it's lots of fun. There are four open slots. Plus I get to meet you!!

Minuteman Regional Technical School

Next week, video lessons resume. Be well and remember.....
Love your piano and it will love you back.
