With cooler months ahead new music is on everyone's mind. What tunes will you add to your repertoire this year?
For our local students we are planning a Winter recital on December 5th. Is there a piece you worked on all Summer that you want to share, or a Holiday piece?
We are also looking at an online class in October to share what you are working on and talk about your personal music goals for this year.
Online music lessons are a powerhouse learning option that we never could have imagined. Students have access to more quality lesson time because they are set up and waiting to be admitted to their online session and they are relaxed and in their environment. Forgetting books and materials no longer happens! And that bathroom break that the student had to take before or during the lesson doesn't happen anymore! Children and adults have a one-on-one session with Miss Dolly every week at their own reserved time. Online lessons - Can happen at home without the extra expense of time traveling to and from a session; They can continue when you have to go out of town; Can keep you off the roads during bad weather or periods of congested traffic. Parents who are self-employed business owners especially love the convenience of online lessons.
We now have an all ages Old Time and Irish Slow Session here in the Charleston area. My heart has always gone out to the person on the edge who brings their instrument to play along at a regular session...and there is no written music, and then the tunes are played at performance speed. So the poor soul sits there quietly hugging their instrument with no clue how to get started and never plays. Well, THIS IS WHERE YOU START! Send me an email with your interest, text number, and the acoustic instrument you will join us with, to: LowCountryStudios@yahoo.com. And I will put you on the contact list. Keep an eye on our Old Time Slow Sessions page for song tabs as I post them plus more information. Instruments may include acoustic: guitars, mandolins, banjos, dulcimers, fiddles, basses, jaw harps (teeth twangers), washboards, spoons, etc. Hope you will join us!
Adults are now finding more time for their own music education without the extra after work drive-time. Some schedule their lesson during their lunch break, or kick back after the kids go to sleep with an online music learning session and a glass of their favorite after work beverage.
The benefits of playing a musical instrument will continue to have a positive impact on lives as long as this planet spins. Music lives in the marsh grasses, roars from the oceans, and sings to us from the trees. It is part of our human experience.
Technology will continue to make the music learning experience more efficient for everyone. And with online lessons the process is less stressful. It is no secret that online lessons are here to stay.
Dolly knew how to prepare me for college auditions. With her help I received a music scholarship to the University of Michigan. I am now a secondary music teacher and I can never thank her enough.

Ms Paul's passion to see me succeed at being my personal best went beyond the music studio. She is a true mentor who cares about her students.

As an older student the covid virus concerns me. Online piano lessons allow me the safety of staying in my home while having an excellent piano tutor to help me reach my goals.

We homeschooled all of our children. Miss Dolly was the ideal piano and music theory teacher for a houseful of children. She was encouraging and clear about what she expected from each child. She would make special worksheets, or create games for our children if they didn't understand a lesson. She is a wonderful teacher of music.
