What are you Thankful for this month?
2020 HOLIDAY MUSIC SHARE! Our October Music Share was lots of fun! Join us this December for our next Music Share Class. Bring any piece that you are working on to share or your favorite holiday piece to share. Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, New Year, or your own Composition! All levels welcome, comfort dress, pets welcome, private event.
It's time to make Thankfulness Chains! Cut construction paper, paper store bags, holiday paper, music paper, or mix together different papers that you have, into strips that are approximately 1" by 6". On the plain side of the paper write something you are thankful for, one piece of paper for every day, then glue or tape the ends together to make a circle. Everyday add a link to your chain with a thankful message and hang it somewhere special: in your room, on your door, on your fireplace, anywhere you want to decorate. Now you choose the date when you want to take down the chain and read all the things you are thankful for with your family or friends. You can save it until Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year's Day, The Twelfth Day of Christmas (January 5th or 6th depending on how you count it) and then open all your links and read all your Thankfulness!! OR, keep adding links everyday for years!! You decide how you want to have fun with this. It makes a great decoration for anytime of the year and reminds you of all the goodness in your life!

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! Because there are no Senior Clubs in Charleston, and no other Junior Clubs, we have been accepted as a part of the Ouida Eich Senior Music Club in Columbia. Our festival date for 2021 is tentatively set for March 6th at the University of South Carolina Music School. All of Miss Dolly's students are registered to play for an assessment. In the event that circumstances do not allow us to have in-person assessments, online opportunities will be available.
We 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.
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.
