Hot Wheels anyone? 🏎️
.
We've been doing so many finger play activities this week.
.
So often I plan fun and games for lessons, taking time to look up new and innovative ways to get kids off the bench in ways that don't turn their brains off, but opens them up and engages then even more.
.
The Hot Wheels weren't researched or planned - they just happened to be close by.
.
But, oh man, Hot Wheels for the win this week! πŸ”₯

I want to take a minute to introduce our newest teacher at B. Mello Music Studio, Andrew Holcomb!

Andrew won my 5-year old over in about 30 seconds flat. She loved her trial lesson with Mr. Andrew - he had her in a fit of giggles while showing her a proper piano playing position. To learn more about his teaching style, check out the "About" page at bmellomusic.com/about.

Andrew teaches both piano and voice, so if you want to try out piano or voice lessons, jump in NOW, before he is booked solid!

Olive started taking piano lessons earlier this year, and her favorite part of piano lessons is the games we play each week!

We recorded our Showcase video back in May, and Olive got to showcase one of the first songs she played in her WunderKeys book. (Notice how there's a game built into the lesson book !? 😍)

Enjoy Olive's showcase performance! 🀩

Sarah's video for the Spring Showcase was 😁😁😁

Sarah found a beautiful song from a video game she plays, and wanted to learn it on the piano. This girl practiced more efficiently and more frequently than ever before while learning "Isabella's Lullaby." 🀩

Her hard work shows off! Here's Sarah's Spring Showcase video, "Isabella's Lullaby" by Takahiro Obata. Just wait for her left hand part at 1:15 🀩

Reese has only been learning piano for less than a year. But she has learned so much in that year! 🎹πŸ₯³

Reese played "Distant Star" by Andrea Dow for the Spring Showcase. We love how the classic tune "Ode to Joy" is woven into the melody of this piece!

Can you hear it too?

Juniper just started doing preschool piano lessons this year! Each week we have fun playing games and jumping around to learn musical concepts through the piano. 🎹

For the Spring Showcase, Juniper did a duet from our unit exploring longer and shorter notes.

Check out Juniper's duet from the Spring Showcase! 🀩

"Nest Quest" by Andrea Dow

"What was your favorite part about online lessons in 2020?"

I've been asking my students that question this week. Their answers are awesome!

β–ͺ️ "It means you still get to be my teacher"
β–ͺ️ "It feels the same as it did before when we were in person."
β–ͺ️ "I don't have to drive to your house." (to which I replied, "And I don't have to clean my house!"
β–ͺ️ "The games we play!!"

As Naomi was showing me the trees she was making, telling me about the winter wonderland scene she was going to make in her room, it dawned on me. My favorite part of online lessons is this special show and tell time.

Sometimes, it looks like Naomi's trees, sitting on her piano during our lesson.
Sometimes, stuffed animals get to sit in on lessons (and learn to play the piano too πŸ˜‰ ).
Sometimes, I get to meet pets, see decorated Christmas trees, or look at their view from a window.

Whatever it is, my favorite part of online lessons in 2020 is getting to connect with you all in a new and fun way! 😎

Chloe plays "Flight Over the Mountain" by Daniel McFarlane

✨✨✨ Student Spotlight ✨✨✨

I first met Chloe back in 2016 when she started flute lessons. But in Fall 2019, Chloe added another instrument to her resume: piano. 🎹

Chloe has been hard-working, dedicated, and consistent to her piano practice, and it shows! Here she is playing "Flight Over the Mountain" by Daniel McFarlane.

Be sure to listen for the dynamics (the volume changes in the music)! Chloe made this piece her own by writing in her own dynamics!

🎢🎢 Well done, Chloe! 🎢🎢

This is my daughter Piper! πŸ€— We have been doing "piano time" on and off for the last 2 years, as she has shown interest. Last fall a fire lit in her, as she saw my students put their names on the wall for 5 days of practice, and she has been so excited about our "piano time" since then!

Way to go Piper!! 🀩🎢🎢

If you had asked me a year ago, whether I would ever have an online recital, I don't think I would have known how to answer! πŸ˜‚

But this Popcorn + Pajama Party was so much fun! We blew up balloons, got in comfy PJ's, and snacked away on popcorn while everyone got to play one of their favorite pieces. Some extended family members got to join in too! ... we may just do this again someday πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

Check out everyone's awesome signs they made to introduce their piece!
