2022 Patriotic Concerts & Recital
CONGRATULATIONS to those who participated in our Annual Student Concert on June 23, 2022, at The Crossroads in Howell.
On that date, the Student and Community Ensemble Band presented our Annual Patriotic Concert--"A Salute to Our Heroes" at The Crossroads at Howell and at Friendship Gardens, Howell.
CONGRATULATIONS to this group of musicians, as well! It was great to get back to seeing the residents as we performed "live", something we weren't able to do for 2 years.
We hope that everyone is remaining well and safe during this difficult COVID period.
Lessons are currently being offered via Skype for those who do not wish “in person” classes.
“In person” classes are also available, with stipulations in place to protect the student and the teacher, as well as other students who may visit the studio.
"In home" classes are currently suspended due to COVID. Skype classes are available.
Please contact Miss Judie via the Contact Form to discuss.

I finally received your letter and DVDs. Thank you for the beautiful letter, and it has always been a pleasure to help you as a student. I got a chance to watch the entire 2016 video of your program. You are doing an amazing job with those kids, and I was proud to say you were a student of mine. You will always be in the memory of those kids throughout their lives.
Keep in touch, and keep up the great results I see with those students."

When you find a person who has the knowledge and expertise in her field, the ability to teach it to others and the heart to care for her students, you know you have found someone precious. She so values her students and their potential that she passionately strives to take their skills to the next level. Her strong work ethic motivates her to give her very best in each lesson. She is indeed a precious find!" ~ Sunila K.

"Miss Judie is able to impart her enthusiasm and love of playing the piano to my daughters and recently-joined son. Miss Judie is not only friendly and patient but is also good at gauging her student's level of knowledge and ability. The progress that my children have made exceeded any expectations I had. Not only have my children grown as piano players, they have gained more confidence in themselves. I am very thankful and would highly recommend Expressions and Reflections." ~ Phyllis C.
"After two months of lessons with Miss Judie, my 8-year-old is impressing me by playing with both hands and counting properly. My mother-in-law, having owned and taught in two Yamaha schools and being much more critical with regard to piano lessons, was floored by how Paige plays and counts in less than two months. Thank you, Miss Judie!" ~ Ruth Ruffman
