As a teacher with a studio that has grown in leaps and bounds in the past year, I knew that manually typing my schedules and invoices by hand each month was no longer practical.  Even once I finished typing the dates manually, adding the amount owed for each student, and making sure each detail was...

Many of the students at Lewis Music Studio are five years old or under.  This is great because they have so much potential for an entire childhood of music.  I have noticed, however, that many children under five get confused between their right and left hands.  They may be able to name them (and we...

During Lewis Music Studio classes, we do hands on activities that teach musical skills.  The kids don’t usually realize that they are learning since all of the activities are songs and games.  Here are some favorite ways that we learn some basic skills: 1.
