Online lessons will be at the normal day and time. All you have to do is install the Zoom app on your phone and on the computer or iPad you are using for Piano Marvel, then click on the link below 5 minutes before your lesson to join the waiting room. Mr. McAnelly will automatically invite you to class when it's time. It's that simple! Here is the link you will use every week for lessons:
Here are the download links to install the Zoom app on your phone (Android or iPhone), and computer (PC or Mac) or iPad:

Are your kids driving you crazy, climbing the walls and getting into trouble?

Even your kid’s screens (TV, iPad, XBox) will get boring after a few weeks. Let us help give you and/or your kids some normalcy and consistency in this crazy time. Something POSITIVE to focus on and to PROGRESS with!
We are now setting up ONLINE ZOOM LESSONS that you can take from the privacy and security of your own home. ALL YOU NEED IS A CELLPHONE (or ANY extra desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or anything that can access the internet).
We have TONS of FUN things planned to keep everybody busy and out of trouble, not just once a week at the lesson, but to work on throughout the week (learning, games, weekly challenges and just plain silly stuff!). Let us help you engage your kids and give them a sense of COMMUNITY to help you through this difficult time.
Here are some examples of what online lessons look like:
If you are interested in online zoom lessons, COME TO CLASS THIS WEEK AND BRING A CELLPHONE that you can use for the lessons so I can get you all setup and ready to go! IF YOU CAN'T MAKE THE LESSON THIS WEEK, JUST CALL OR TEXT ME AND I WILL STEP YOU THROUGH THE SETUP OVER THE PHONE.
See you soon!
Dear Students and Parents,
Just a quick heads up that we ARE resuming classes and make up lessons this week. Understandably many of you are concerned about the Coronavirus, so here is an important update. Because I care about my students’ health as well as their musical skills, WE ARE NOW OFFERING OPTIONAL ONLINE MUSIC CLASSES VIA ZOOM. We will be meeting for class this week at the studio at the usual time for a normal lesson, and also to help everyone get setup on this free, awesome and easy to use platform. As most of my school age students are not in school this week, this is the perfect time in the midst of the chaos to give everyone some normalcy, fun, and something to do so they don’t climb the walls! 😉 The good news is that because many of you are using Piano Marvel, you already have all you need to make this work (and for those of you who aren’t, don’t worry—setup is easy!). The technology is such that online lessons will be exciting, fun AND productive! AT THIS POINT ONLINE LESSONS ARE OPTIONAL, AS NORMAL CLASSES WILL CONTINUE THIS WEEK AT THE USUAL DAY AND TIME. Rest assured, we are taking every precaution the CDC advises to make sure that the studio is a healthy and safe environment. Everybody will be met at the door with hand sanitizer and Clorox Wipes, all keyboards, doorknobs, and commonly used items will be cleaned before and during every class, and plenty of soap and water will be on hand as needed. If you are having any flu symptoms, stay home until you are better (and be sure to take advantage of our ONLINE MUSIC LESSONS and MAKE UPS). I will send another message to everyone about what to bring with you to the lesson this week (ie: iPad, tablet, laptop, phone, etc.) so everyone can get setup for online lessons if needed. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND LESSONS THIS WEEK, LET ME KNOW AND I WILL SEND INFO AND HELP YOU GET ALL SETUP FOR ONLINE LESSONS FROM HOME. As an added incentive, we are starting to choose songs for an upcoming performance in late May or early June (well after all this has passed). This is an adventure and we are all in this together, but we CAN keep our skills up, keep the music flowing and our students happy. We are so grateful that we can do lessons online! If you have any questions, feel free to text me. See you soon!
