Today I’m proud to take you on the penny tour… :)
My husband and I feel so blessed to have found this adorable old house to rent.
Follow me up the front stairs towards the porch, and you’ll pass this pot of pansies – my favorite! I bought them on clearance at Wal-Mart for a dollar each, and put them into a couple of pots we had lying around.
After walking through the enclosed porch, we are now in the living room which also serves as a waiting area for the piano studio. And, yes, you can see my Kawai from here! We are using the dining room as my piano studio, since the kitchen is large enough to hold our small dining room table.
I love all the woodwork in this old house. They don’t make ’em like they used to!!
The fireplace in the living room is non-functional, but I love how it looks!
dining room teaching studio has a built-in drawers and cabinets, perfect for storing sheet music and music games!
…some random stuff I hope to use during monthly group lessons and Piano Readiness Classes. :)
That doorway leads into the kitchen. The door on the right is a hallway leading to two bedrooms and the bathroom.
My studio bulletin board currently features some of the thank you cards I received from students before we moved away. :( Hopefully soon it will also feature photos of new students here in Ohio!
Here’s where I sit while teaching. It’s just a folding chair for now, but eventually I hope to replace it with a comfy computer chair. The bookshelf is the studio lending library. The little filing cabinet and the black binder on top of it helps keep me organized. :)
The piano came with this little stool. I’m think I’m going to ask my mom to help me make a cushion for it, because it does get rather hard after awhile. The good thing, though, it that it is adjustable in height which is great for young students!
The ivories (yes, real ivories!) are in near perfect condition.
I love my piano teaching studio! I couldn’t have imagined a better setup. What a blessing!
