Piano in

At home and in the world.

SNOW DAY POLICY: Piano lessons are still on the schedule during snow days. We get plowed-out and typically roads are better for travel in the afternoon. Students should let Sherry know if they are snowed-in and unable to come.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
