Thank you for everything you’ve taught me over the years. Those lessons will stay with me the rest of my life. I know music will continue to enrich my life and I want to thank you for giving me the gift of being able to appreciate it.

Piano students – keep the top joint of every finger firm.
Voice students – keep your sternum high.
Violin students- keep your bow arm lifted.
Parents – tap or clap the beat when singing with your child.
All three of my children have been involved with Miss Peggy’s Music Room since they participated in the infant music appreciation classes. My oldest daughter now plays the flute in the elementary school band and she and my middle daughter continue their piano lessons with Miss Peggy. My youngest daughter can’t wait to start lessons! The family got so involved that my husband even took piano lessons there. It is a great, personal program with an emphasis on individual achievement and boosting self-esteem through music. We love it!
