How is it possible that Hanon, Snow Patrol and Lady Gaga could find themselves in the same sentence? I’ll tell you how!
When you are working on improving your piano skills by studying and practice, then Hanon becomes a way of life! Honestly, I can’t remember a day without performing at least the first exercise 2-3 times in a row with a metronome setting of 72. You can read more about practicing, here.

ummmmm…..HELLO!!! I have been a fan of Sara Ramirez since forever! What a beautiful song and once again my clients enrich my music life. Love that!
Lady Gaga. “sigh” Talent, beauty, wacky. A girl after my own heart. Seriously, my inner rock goddess sports blonde and purple hair, lots of tattoos, plays piano like Elton John and sings like Janis Joplin meets Adele… just keepin’ it real.
What do you think of this??? Let’s see how my weight loss work goes,,,but OMG, isn’t it SO SO pretty??!!
I am working on my own acoustic version of a couple of her songs and I hope to be brave enough to post them in the coming months. Born This Way and You and I are the songs I’m working on…wheee!!! I’m excited to share that with you as it puts me on the spot and propels me towards my ultimate goal of covering the songs that speak to me deeply and personally and that resonate in ways that make me want to share with you!
Ok, time to begin my day of teaching and then being taught! 😉 Have a wonderful Thursday and if you are in Vegas, enjoy the rain!
