Playing Piano Pays Off!

Posted on 22 January, 2019 at 10:25 Comments comments (5800)
Many times, parents wonder where to begin when choosing to place their child in music lessons. It can be a difficult decision when their child wants to play piano, drums, keyboard, trumpet, clarinet, or flute. This is just a reminder that piano is an excellent 1st instrument. Students who choose to learn piano as their first instrument, typically exceed when learning to play other instruments. Piano provides a solid foundation for music education. The student, from the very begin... Read Full Post »

It is the beginning of September, and at least at our house, the beginning of Fall! My daughter always insists that just because we live in the furnace that is Texas, after Labor Day, it is time to decorate for Fall. I have ceased to fight the fight, so now my house is overflowing with Fall goodies and decorations. The studio is flocked with autumn flowers and scarecrows, and soon we will begin playing songs about the fall season, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. It is always a pleasure to... Read Full Post »

Fall 2017 Begins!

Posted on 30 August, 2017 at 10:15 Comments comments (7045)
Thankfully, as far as I can determine, all of our students and their families made it through Hurricane Harvey with no problems. For this, Mrs. Remia and MusicbyRjon are very grateful. Fall lessons began yesterday! We had lots of happy and excited students who had survived their 1st day of the school year, and were ready to begin piano lessons. This fall, we will continue working on technique, piano etiquette, and learning more about classical composers. We have a lot to pack in be... Read Full Post »

Piano Practice or Homework??

Posted on 8 February, 2016 at 2:45 Comments comments (3830)

Many times, piano practice is pushed to the side when a student has an abundance of homework, as well as sports, church, and other activities to complete. The student can become overwhelmed, and piano practice becomes more of a burden than the fun activity that it should be.

Piano practice is a commitment and a responsibility, just as homework is. While school work always takes priority, the student must learn that piano practice is also a responsibility.

Set aside a scheduled...

The Fall Focus

Posted on 21 August, 2015 at 10:30 Comments comments (5932)

It is that time of year again!  In some areas, leaves begin falling from the trees, temperatures become a little cooler, night comes a little quicker, and buses start rolling with happy, squealing, sleepy school children aboard.

Here, at MusicbyRjon, we begin our Fall/Winter Session.  We have some students celebrating their next level in music, while others are just beginning their musical journey. 

During the Summer Session, we focused on:  Technic and ...

I started teaching Sunday school at Scott United Methodist Church when I was 11 years old. I arrived at the church a little early on this particular Sunday morning, and Mrs. Pauline Snelling found me waiting in the hallway. I was waiting for my Sunday school teacher, but Mrs. Snelling said "follow me". So I trustingly went with her, and was ushered into a "lion's den" of kindergarten and 1st - 2nd grade Sunday school students. Mrs. Pauline handed me a couple of books, and told me that this ...

Music and Alzheimer's Disease

My mother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease when she was in her late 50's.  Alzheimer's was something I'd heard of, but it was called "Old Timer's Disease". It was very difficult for our family to associate this disease with such an active, happy, and lively woman.

Practice Makes Perfect!

Posted on 14 October, 2014 at 22:30 Comments comments (2754)

I often find myself encouraging parents when they are seeking advice on getting their young student to practice.  Many times with school schedules, homework, and extra-curriculars, there is no time left over for piano practice. 

In today's society, parents are tired out from a day of trying to be an excellent employe...
