We have been having a blast in New Brunswick. I was able to go to the Village Feast and meet Chef Michael Smith and he even autographed my cookbook. The food was of course amazing and Chef Michael was just as nice as I was hoping he would be. Hope everyone else is having a great summer too.
It is a rainy May 2, 2017 but I am looking out my front window at beautiful Bouctouche Bay. The inspiration that I am feeling here is amazing.
The moving truck will be here on Thursday, May 4th, 2017 to deliver everything, including the piano. I can't wait to start playing again, even though it has only been less than a week I miss my fingers playing on the keys.
I am looking forward to getting back to my roots and just teaching piano and theory again.
I am so excited to announce that I am relocating the Music Studio.
After many, many years of dreaming of the day, Don (my husband) and I are semi-retiring to beautiful New Brunswick.
While I am going to miss my students, I feel that this is the best time to move.
I hope and pray that everyone continues with their music and that one day I will see my students on the stage.
So New Brunswick, HERE I COME!!!
We are once again pleased to announce that we will be having our Christmas Recital on December 10th, 2016 from 3:00 - 5:00 pm. We will be having the Recital at West 5th Bible Chapel, 440 West Fifth Street (near Mohawk, behind Terryberry Library).
Please make sure that all students sign up so we know how many will be performing.
We look forward to hearing all of the students and encourage you to bring cameras to record your child's accomplishments.
This has been a fantastic year so far for Quality Piano Lessons Music Studio/Wessel School of Music. We not only won Platinum in the Mountain Community News Readers Choice Awards, we also placed top 10 in the Hamilton Spectator Readers Choice Awards and we won Bronze in the CHCH Business excellence awards. I can only say how thankful I am for our students for supporting us.
We are asking all of our students to please wear your costumes on your day of lessons the 25th, 26th, 27th and 31st of October.
We will have the cauldron of candy out, all peanut free of course, and all students who are in costume will be able to trick or treat :D
We are hoping that all the students are safe this Halloween and that everyone has a wonderful time. We are also hoping that none of our students get tummy aches from too much candy.
Jessica Kelman, Kim Wessel, and Quality Piano Lessons have all been nominated in the Hamilton Spectator Reader's Choice Award. We would be grateful for any votes you may wish to give us. We are thankful to be nominated.

Not sure if everyone knows, but I have been taking flute lessons for about 2 - 3 months now. I am able to play some scales but the fingerings are totally different from piano. :D But that's ok, it is important to always take the time to try something new. You never know what it is going to do for you.
The accomplishment of being able to play 3 scales makes me quite happy. And starting to play a few "easy" songs too.
I challenge everyone to try a new instrument to see how they feel.
I know that it is the end of July, but we want to make sure that everyone gets the schedule they want for their lessons in September.
Please contact the studio in the next couple of weeks to confirm or change your September time spot.
