Pianorama Registration Closes on September 1st

Registration for Pianorama 2019 CLOSES on September 1st. Please register your Duet Teams online at http://www.ceomta.org/student-events/pianorama. Teachers should complete one Teacher Registration Form and then one Student Registration for each duet team. All pertinent dates for rehearsals and concerts are listed on the website. Specific Audition times for each level will be assigned as soon as registration closes and we have final numbers. If you have questions, please contact Andrea Keil (614-406-7058) or Amy Girvin (614-439-4665).

Pianorama 2019

Pianorama 2019 is just around the corner!

Conductors’ notes have been posted for each level – they can be accessed through links from the rehearsal schedule. Please read these thoroughly and incorporate them into your students’ preparations – this will make everyone’s audition and rehearsal experiences go much more smoothly.

Registration is open July 15th through September 1st. Please remind your students to check the rehearsal schedules and confirm that they will be able to attend ALL of the rehearsals before registering. We have changed registration form systems this year – the teacher will fill out a single Teacher Registration form, then submit an individual Student Registration form for each duet team (students must be registered in pairs). We will also have a withdrawal form available if duet teams need to withdraw or partners need to be substituted. Teams that withdraw before September 1st (the registration deadline) will have their fees refunded to the teacher. Registration fees for withdrawals made after the registration deadline are non-refundable.

Complete information can be found on our website:

Hope everyone is enjoying their preparations for Pianorama 2019!

Invitation to Happy Birthday Class

The One Song Everyone Should Know!

Can you sit down at a moment’s notice and play a professional sounding version of “the song”?

Does every one of your late elementary students know how to play Happy Birthday?

We will build Happy Birthday from the bottom up so you can go home and start teaching it the same afternoon. When students are fluent with a four-note C7 chord, they are ready to learn the one song everyone should know. We will be “hands-on” — as if we were competent 6th grade students. In one session we will go through the steps that normally take a student about six lessons.

MONDAY, August 5th beginning at 10:00 a.m. sharp, and ending around 11:45 a.m. in the Keyboard Lab at Graves Piano and Organ. Bring a pencil (with eraser) and a soft clipboard or book to write on. I will give you a hand-out when we are almost finished.
