Easy Zoom piano lessons through April 1, at least

Hi again, Musikhaus parents and students!
I will no longer send you Zoom links for piano lessons. It’s much simpler for you to set up a free basic account at https://zoom.us/ and “Join” me on Zoom by inputting my Personal Meeting ID. That’s what I’ll be sending you this week, and you’ll join all lessons with it even when we reschedule. Use a desktop, laptop or tablet for the lesson so the screen is big enough to see what I am doing.
Online piano lessons are getting better day by day!

Students and parents, this set-up gives me a side view of the student’s hands, and the laptop/ladder is super easy for the student to move to show the face up close or movement activities if student backs away. Use “gallery view” to see me and how you appear to me.

Zoom lessons Mar. 16-20

Musikhaus parents and students,

I will text you Zoom links for our online piano lessons this week. You don’t need a Zoom account, just a device (or two) that has Internet, microphone, speakers, and camera.

The Skype-MyMusicStaff integration didn’t work out in test calls yesterday afternoon.

Additionally I’m having trouble with more emails than usual not being delivered, even after carefully going through the configurations yesterday morning. That’s why I’m posting about what’s going on here, on the Musikhaus Piano Lessons Facebook page, and the musikhaus.mymusicstaff.com portal.

Keep calm and wash a song!

Piano lessons via Web to prevent spread of virus

All Musikhaus piano lessons will be conducted online at their previously scheduled times during the week of March 16 — no in-person lessons.

This STRONG strategy that encourages people to stay home in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, out of LOVE for all our neighbors, including the most vulnerable, is called social distancing. Area school districts and many other organizations are adopting it. Social distancing is most effective at slowing the spread of a pandemic when practiced in lockstep and SOLIDARITY with the larger community! See www.ccisd.net/covid-19 .

Hausmusik 2018

Kiki Melody Prelude performs Sunny Today, 1st movement of Sonatina No. 1 in C Major, by Lynn Freeman Olson in 2018.

Feeling nostalgic and proud as I look back on some videos from the Hausmusik on February 24, 2018. My students are growing up generally and musically!

Hausmusik at Musikhaus Piano Studio is usually an informal recital with Compliment Exchange. For the 2018 edition clouds floated peacefully by while we shared music and bundtinis.

Keyboard Games are fun at any age!

Music Moves for Piano student Paden, age 6, already has his first student: Mom! He learned the part Mom is playing, taught himself his part and then taught his mom the first part. Keyboard Games are fun at any age, but I only have lesson times left for 4-8 year-olds!
