-- I will not be teaching on Monday, August 9. Besides that day, my teaching schedule for August will be interrupted.
-- The Ear Power song for the months of August 2010 is:
"Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson
**Beginning this month I won't be embedding videos on my blog of the selected song of the month. As a music teacher I think it's important that I don't promote music piracy any more than it has already become the norm. The Internet is a wonderful thing, but it has unfortunately led to artists of all disciplines losing important revenue streams via rampant file-sharing. By not embedding videos with audio of the monthly song I hope to encourage more individuals to actually purchase the songs and begin to build their own library of music (mp3 or otherwise). I will always provide links to acquire the songs legally.
-- I am opening a new teaching studio at my home in Castro Valley. I will be teaching from home weekly, every Wednesday and Thursday. If you know anyone who lives in the C.V. area and is interested in piano lessons, do encourage them to contact me - I am now accepting new students! My bio can be found here, and I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a happy day,
