Changes are coming to Miss Anna’s Music Studio and it’s definitely an exciting time to be a part of our growing family!
For over 10 years Miss Anna Lawrence has been a music teacher both in the school system and as a private instrument instructor. For the last 7 years, she has traveled house to house teaching music and, quite frankly, the drive is starting to take its toll (we’re surprised it took 7 whole years!). While teaching in-home lessons certainly has its conveniences, there are drawbacks as well. Sometimes the setting is not truly conducive to learning. Sometimes we are limited to the kind of keyboard that will fit into whatever space a family can make for it. For the most part, the instruction is limited to a solitary pursuit.
At a studio, however, we can create an environment that is 100% encouraging and protective of the pursuit of learning. Students can spend time playing on a beautiful acoustic piano or professional electronic piano. Students can participate in group music making, through group lessons, classes, ensembles, and duets. The possibilities are (almost) endless.
So I’m happy to announce that Miss Anna’s Music School will be looking to move into a permanent location of our own in Woodbridge or Perth Amboy sometime during the 2017-2018 school year! We are really excited to embark on this new journey and hope that many of you will come along with us for the ride (don’t worry, we will continue to provide in-home lessons to all our current students if that is what they choose). In the meantime, be on the lookout for an exciting fundraising campaign throughout the summer as we raise the capital to bring you a studio that will elevate our music experience to new heights!
