Moving to Online Lessons – Setup

Hello All!

I have been working very hard this week to get everything as ready as it can be to restart this week 🙂 I hope you’ve been able to settle into a new normal, and I am looking forward to touching base with everyone again!

I’ve attached the final schedule for those participating in Option 2 – online lessons. PLEASE make sure to look at it and ask if you have any questions!

As of now, school is supposed to resume April 6. Due to the fact that everyone seems to have different opinions and the likelihood of continued recommended self-quarantine, I am preparing to continue this schedule as long as necessary …

Each week you can expect:

~ A creativity project (don’t stress about this, it’s optional, and should be fun!)

~ A chance to be entered into the “Gotcha” competition (parents – please make an effort to snap a pic/video of your child practicing without being prompted and send it to me … they’ll be entered in our drawing!)

~ Your normal practicing routine…. I will be keeping up with your music as normally as possible 🙂

At each lesson please be ready:

~ I will call or reach out to you. This will allow me to finish each lesson before without interruption. Expect a couple minutes as we try to connect the first week … I am still learning all this tech as well!

~ Please have a piece of paper to write down your assignments for the next week.

~ Please have a pencil, highlighter(s), and dice (for the kids).

~ If other things are needed, I will contact you before the lesson 🙂 Thanks for your cooperation with this!

This week’s creativity project …

Mozart is April’s Composer of the Month! Listen to this week’s piece here – https://pianopossibilities.org/composer-of-the-month-2020/wolfgang-amadeus-mozart/

And create a piece of artwork that you feel describes what you hear! Feel free to be as creative as you like … it can be paint, drawing, mixed media, etc. Please send me pictures of what you’ve created!

Finally, I will be sending invoice information to each of you individually. Please keep an eye out for it!

I’ve thrown a lot of information at you … please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Happy Practicing,

~McKenzie
