The School Years 2020/2021/2022 remain to be "the COVID 19 school years to remember", with events that affected all of us.
As the economy, business and life move on, our family is thrilled to continue with our mission of enriching lives with the beauty of music and piano. Since 1994! We continue to provide our services; we welcome you all - we are here to enroll, provide guidance to new students and continue delivering the joy of music, literally, in the form of our pianos and individually tailored piano lessons online or on-site. We proudly add other services (NEW): Professional Piano Tuning/Service and Used Piano Sales.
Most importantly, the ongoing and successful vaccination efforts assure that, after all, the end of the pandemic challenges is in sight! Let's stay on course, continue practicing social distancing, and engage in everyday activities with utmost caution and care for each other's health and well-being.
The unprecedented times behind us have also reminded us all of the immense beauty, power, benefits and sheer JOY OF MUSIC MAKING. It has been wonderful to experience incredible interest in music lessons and piano sales in the past 15+ months. It has been true joy and privilege to be of service to our clients, students and communities. But most of all is the beautiful reality of how many of us have found refuge in music's soothing, rejuvenating, re-energizing qualities. During the unprecedented times of self-isolation, the magic beauty of those black & white keys has been a comforting force of human expression unlike any other. In our home, your home, homes and places around the World!
A refreshing reminder of music's and piano's timeless beauty, of music being that outlet for expressing our emotions, that medium of creativity, sharing, friendship, cooperation, collaboration - medium and POWER that reaches across borders, continents, and cultures. Universal force and the language of peace and unity! Piano study is an incredibly powerful educational, developmental activity for our children and a soothing, stress relief hobby for humans of any age!
At Clarkson Piano, the well-being, health and safety of our students, parents, families, clients and visitors have been our very top priority.
