Merry Christmas & A Very Happy New Year!
Our next Music Class for Sharing is in January. These classes are lots of fun! Why? Because bloopers are welcome and expected. This is an "un-recital" opportunity. Bring any piece that you are working on to share: a scale, a technic piece, a song in your lesson book, or your own Composition! All Miss Dolly's students are welcome, comfort dress, pets welcome, private event.
The January 2021 Piano Explorer Magazine is available for download under the EXPLORE tab for students. It is so nice to know that a few of you have really enjoyed this magazine and have taken advantage of all the information it contains. I will not be re-subscribing for students this year. Students may subscribe on their own online through the magazine's webpage.
Did you know we are a registered music club in the South Carolina Federation of Music Clubs, and the only Junior Music Club in Charleston? It's true! We have gratiously been accepted as a part of a larger club in Columbia SC. Our festival date for 2021 is tentatively set for March 6th at the University in Columbia. Be sure to let Miss Dolly know if you want to take part in an assessment opportunity. In the event that circumstances do not allow us to have in-person assessments, online opportunities may be available.
I have received a donation of Ukulele books and will be posting those under the student pages for download. The chord names are the same for the guitar, so guitar students will be able to use these books as well. The ukulele only has 4 strings and is tuned differently than the guitar therefore the symbol box is different but the chord names are the same.
It has been a wicked tough year. I lost two-thirds of my studio when the pandemic closures happened. Many parents were suddenly out of work, or the students didn't have access to computers or internet service. Music education is an important part of STEAM and with your help I can continue teaching students and loan or give them books and devices to continue study when hardships occur. By joining Low Country Studios on Patreon, you can donate as little as $1.00 each month and stop as soon as you want. You will receive information and updates on how your membership is helping. Your donation helps me keep the music playing for others.
You will meet with the same online piano lesson, ukulele, or guitar, coach every week in a live online session. There are no one-size-fits-all videos.
Dolly Paul has experience with all ages and levels. Online piano lessons, ukulele lessons, and guitar lessons are tailored to the individual. Your lessons flow forward at a pace that is comfortable for you.
You are investing in a music education for yourself, or for your child. Every student gets equal attention. You pay for a month of online piano lessons, ukulele lessons, or guitar lessons before the first of each month. If you decide at the end of the month that you do not want to continue with lessons, simply notify the teacher and you will not be billed for the next month.
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.
