We are so proud to announce that every Klassically Cool Music School student who participated in the FSMTA District 6 Performance Exams received high Honors. Thank you,  students for your preparation and to your parents for their dedication.

We are now gearing up for Guild Auditions the week of May 26-30. We will not have regular lessons this week, due to auditions. If you are not participaing in Guild, we will reschedule your lesson that week. For those participating in Guild, this will take the place of your regular lesson for the week.

May 31 is our Spring Recital. Please click on the Recital Tab on the lower right side of this page for more info.


I am pleased to announce that our studio raised the most money in our BCMTA Annual Musicthon. The cause is very near and dear to my heart and I am so proud of each participating family! We have students in our studio who will be utilizing the summer camp scholarships to attend music and arts related summer camps around the country.

Student Day Written and Aural Theory evaluations took place on March 2nd.  I am very proud of all of our students. All but two received Highest Honors on both Written and Aural Exams. All passed!

I am happy to announce that Jeffrey Drew received the hightest score in Broward County on his Level 12 Written and Aural Theory Exams, scoring 100 and 100. He will be awarded a monetary prize for this achievement. Both Jeffrey Drew and Audrey Coldwell, who also received High Honors, will each receive $100 for completing Level 12 Theory and Performance Exams. Our students took exams from Primary through Level 12. The only Level our studio didn't take an exam in was Level 11! WAY TO GO!

Michael Drew has been selected, through audtition, to perform in the Chopin Foundation's Young Artists performance which will be held at Broward County Main Library Auditorium in April.  Congratulations, Michael!

We are so proud of Nicole Mayo, Cailinh Bui, Emma Segota, and Michael Drew for representing our studio in their respective school's talent shows. Well Done!!!

Student Day Performance Evaluations are April 13-14, 2019 at North Broward Preparatory in Coconut Creek, Fl

I want to inform you of a few things related to these evaluations that you can share with your child:

1. Please dress nicely, as though it were a recital - this demonstrates respect for the event and for the adjudicator.
2. Please bring your exam with you, along with your original music, measures numbered.
3. Sight-reading is also a component of the exam but does not count against your score. It is an opportunity to gain an extra point.
4. Always choose to play your keyboard skills, ie. scales, arpeggios, etc. before your pieces. This will help to warm you up and will give you a feel for the instrument.
5. Please remember to thank the adjudicator for their time when you are finished. You may leave the school as soon as your evaluation is over.
6. Primary Level Students (Zachery Baker, Sam Harms and Rowan Purchase should go to the Student Day office to take the Primary Level Written exam as soon as they have completed their Performance evaluations.
Additional Dates to remember:
*Guild Auditions will take place on March 29 and 30th. Please put these dates on your calendar and plan for morning and afternoon times.
*Studio Recital date: March 31, 2019 at New Presbyterian Church in Wilton Manors, more info to follow...
