We now have two options of classes for you 0-5 year olds!

Summer Musikgarten classes will begin in June and be a short 8 week session.  Email Amy for more information:

Beginning on June 11, Brigid Kaelin will start a Family Music Jam class.  This is a drop in class at 9:30am; $10 per family.

The Suzuki String Institute at UofL is looking for more 3-5 year olds for their new beginners classes.  NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!  I will be in the New Beginning Viola class with my 4 year old!  This is a great way to jump start your summer lessons.

See their website for more information,

Want to learn a new instrument?  Kids need something to do this summer?  Summer lessons are a great way to keep the kids engaged in something other than the tv.  Call today for availability.  We also offer a flexplan so you only have to pay for the lessons you’ll be able to attend in June and July.

Fall Recital Date!

Mark your calendars now! Our fall recitals will be on November 5 at Immanuel UCC (across the street). Recital times are TBA right now, but will be in the afternoon. We will again feature 3 recitals, with receptions after each.

Remember, there will now be a sign up process for recitals, including a form to be filled out with your recital selections for inclusion on the programs. These forms will be available from your teacher, and need to be turned in to Kim by Wednesday, Nov. 2 with the $5 recital fee ($10 per family).

I look forward to this fall’s recitals! And don’t forget your costume!


Spring Recitals were a Success!

Thank you to all who came out and supported the 60 students who performed on our spring recitals this past Saturday!  They were all a smashing success, the keyboard going in and out notwithstanding, of course.

Make sure to be thinking abuout your summer plans for lessons.  You can either continue as normal on the month to month plan OR use our flexplan scheuduling if you will be traveling/etc this summer.  Please ask your teacher for more details.

Again, great job on Saturday!


MusikGarten and Recitals…

MusikGarten classes start this week!  There are still spots available.  If you have any interest at all, please contact Amy Dobben about visiting a class!!  You can send her an email from the “Our Teachers” page.

We have a date set for the Fall Costume Recitals – October 23!  The recitals will be across the street at Immanuel UCC (same place as April).  I’m not sure about the times yet, but plan on there being at least two recitals, with one in the early afternoon and one towards the later afternoon.  Dependent upon interest, we may even have to do three separate recitals!

The Annex is now open.  If you’re having trouble finding your teacher, they may have moved over there!  Check the board in the main building for an update on who is in the Annex that day!

Recital coming up!

Mark your calendars…the Spring Recital is next Saturday (April 24)!! It will be at Immanuel Church of Christ (right across the street) at 2pm. Hope to see you all there!

Spring Recital Date Set!

Mark your calendars now!  The Spring Recital is set for April 24 at 2pm across the street at Immanuel UCC.  Sign up with your teacher.  There will be a “potluck” reception to follow, so bring a dessert or finger food to share!

New teacher and upcoming recitals!

First, I would like to welcome Ms. Cordia Thompkins to our studio.  Cordia, a recent graduate of UofL’s School of Music, has joined us as a violin teacher.  We are most excited to have her!

Secondly, I’d like to remind everyone of the Fifth Annual Costume Recitals this weekend.  So, on Sunday, Nov. 1, don your Halloween costume one last time and join us at Central Christian Church in beautiful New Albany, IN to see some, um, interesting people play some lovely music!  Recitals are at 2pm and 4:30pm, with receptions following both.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

A few other notes – I’m happy to report that the tree blocking some parking spaces has finally been taken care of.  Also, my husband and I are having a boy (so they say)!
