music history 2 written test

I booked my music history 2 written test for August 5th in Calgary.
I've been reading flashcards, I've been making posters of the different eras and it's corresponding composers, a poster on the different baroque and classical dances, I have 2 textbooks I've been working in by going onto Youtube and listening to the musics I'm required to know.
I'll keep up the work, if you have an idea how else I can study for my test please share it with me.

festival of music

Kathie's Festival of Music is happening next thursday at 7 pm at the Alliance church in downtown Strathmore. 
Brenna and Anna will be representing pianissimo piano studio by playing a piece of piano music each, there will be other students from other teachers in the audience too. 
You will be playing on a grand piano.
good luck ladies, I'll be playing something too.

an accordeon

thank you Wess for the awesome gift of an antique accordeon. 
came complete with antique case and yellowing music sheets.
this is so great, now who's gonna try it, make a few sounds?


Thank you Wendy Mockford for the lovely testimonial you gave me:

My daughter is taking piano lessons from Rachel. She started in September and is already doing so well! Rachel is teaching her in the way she learns best, this is keeping her interested in lessons! (For the first time) 
I truly enjoy hearing her practice her music that she is given, and she is excited to go back each week! Rachel is kind and patient and we appreciate her so much!


Went to Montreal last week to visit my dying father.  
He passed away last wednesday in the morning.

I had some time to grieve with my favourite song: 
say something..

Im back at work, getting ready for students to come back.
You are entitled to a make up lesson because I missed a week with your child.
Just contact me and let me know when we shall book a make up lesson.

Montreal trip

To my students, please remember that the week of November 2nd from that monday to the next following monday I will be away.
I am going to Montreal with my sister to see our ailing father who is in the hospital.
I always want to be fair, your money doesnt go to waste, I offer make up lessons any day of the week or weekends. If that doesnt work for you, I'll deduct your fee to be accordingly.
thank you for your kind words and support and understanding as well!

Summer lessons, anyone?

Summer is here and a lot of you are participating
in sports, Its great, and it's great for you!!
For the ones that still want to do some lessons thru the summer months, I'd love to help you out there.
When you are ready to start up piano lessons again in the fall, you can contact me and select a time slot, first call first serve. And you have the choice of coming one half hour per week or we can alter this if you want to have time going camping maybe.

our new organ

My husband recently surprised me with a church organ, the small kinds, a little smaller than my piano. We found a good spot for it in my studio.  It's great for the kids and expanding their knowledge of music!
If I keep collecting instruments like this, I'm gonna need a bigger studio! LOL
