Hi everyone,

Today was a first in that I used Instagram live on my personal account (@frecklesnola) to livestream my practice session. It was interesting to do and I think I’m going to try it again in the future. For now, I’m going to keep doing it from my personal insta because I have more followers there, but my hope is to transition to my piano account (@piano_nola) eventually. Anyway, please follow either or both if you want to check it out.

I should warn you though – I will NOT be performing. I will being doing very detailed practice of small passages of music, like I encourage my students to practice. (And hopefully I”ll make my piano students watch it every once in a while.) Because instagram is kinda of difficult to embed things, I don’t think I”ll be able to embed the streams in this blog, so sorry for that.

Second announcement is this: I am going to start a beginning piano class on Wednesday mornings at 9 am central time. Of course, I don’t advise anyone learning piano without a teacher (you can learn some really bad technique without feedback), but I’ve always wanted to try to teach over the internet, so this will be an experiment. Perhaps I could make a way for students to send me videos and provide feedback, but I’ll have to look into that. Anyway, I’ll be streaming those sessions on Twitch, where my username is @frecklesnola. So feel free to follow along, comment, provide feedback (no one is perfect), and participate if you are interested.

Wish me luck! And please join me even if you are an experienced player and want to discuss or provide feedback.
