Thank you blog followers! And updates.

Thank you blog followers for your patience! Apologies for last post in error: what we meant to say is–check out the October composition challenge under the student corner, or click HERE! Complete this and other challenges to earn points for your house.

We are looking forward to visiting Seacoast Nursing Home this Saturday at 10:30 AM. Bring a token for a special friend–maybe a drawing or ghoulish decoration. Costumes optional for this performance.

Also, the North Shore Piano Teacher’s Recital is around the corner on Sunday, November 15th in Beverly. For this, students interested in performing must have their piece memorized by November 1st.

Recommended Free App/Website: Chromatik

We just discovered a great free app/website called Chromatik. This app/website has tons of free arrangements of sheet music for all instruments–and in the app, the sheet music will even “play” (scroll through) as you work on sightreading. No page turning! Songs are organized by genre: “Chart Toppers,” “Disney Songbook,” and “60s” to “90s”–just to name a few. Most songs have a YouTube clip attached so that you can listen to the song. There are “EasyNote” arrangements for beginners. There’s even a metronome in the app. Get playing!
