Sunburst Music Scholarship Fund

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with New Sun Rising to form the Sunburst Music Scholarship Fund, a new scholarship aimed at providing free or low cost music lessons to kids from lower income families. Learning music can have a profound impact on the minds and lives of young people, and it’s our goal to make sure that our lessons and group programs are accessible to everyone.

Drum student and teacher at June 17 recitalI can’t believe we’re already heading into another holiday season and that can only mean one thing…there’s a student recital around the corner!! I absolutely love helping my students get ready for recitals because it’s such an important learning tool in addition to being a fun, enriching experience. Performing is a wonderful way for students to express themselves and show what they have learned. It also establishes clear goals for them to work towards which can spark a great deal of progress in the prior weeks. That’s why preparation is key!

The Meters - Struttin’

The Meters   StruttinThis is The Meters 3rd record produced by all-time great New Orleans pianist / songwriter / arranger / producer Allen Toussaint. Not only does this record deliver extremely deep, satisfying groove, but the “songs” are there are as well. Check out “Witchita Lineman” for a great soul ballad, something you didn't hear on previous Meters records. The Meters also happen to be one of the few bands that use the guitar to enhance the funk of the rest of the group - check out “Meters Strut” to see what I mean. If you are looking for an entrance into funk / soul music, there is no better record than this. 

Music Production Teacher Anne Angyal

How did you get started playing your instrument (or doing music production)?

I started piano lessons at the age of 4 and started music production when a friend gave me a copy of Reason about 6 years ago. I started making beats and loops and then some friends wanted me to record them singing to it.
