LANG LANG – Las Vegas – MTNA

Lang Lang - Las Vegas - MTNA 2015

Lang Lang and Glory St. Germain - Ultimate Music TheoryLang Lang - Piano... it appears these two are forever connected. How is it that one man can accomplish SO much in such a short time?

It is said that if one word applies to Lang Lang, to the musician, to the man, to his worldview, to those who come into contact with him, it is “inspiration”.

The Las Vegas MTNA Conference this year was a memorable one!

As we are inspired by the talent of such an incredible performer, having been heard by television audiences in the millions, the great pianist Lang Lang himself, we are also aware of the gifts we, as teachers, are given to inspire our students.

In addition to the inspiring Lang Lang - Shelagh and I had the opportunity to applaud the great accomplishments of our Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course Teachers!

Shelagh McKibbon-U'Ren,David Olander, Glory St. Germain - Ultimate Music TheoryFrom L - R: UMT Executive Director Shelagh McKibbon-U'Ren, the ever entertaining David Olander and myself (Glory St. Germain).

Notice David's T-Shirt - Driven by Music...

It should have read, Driven by Ultimate Music Theory, LOL.

But that's OK David... you're still cool!

Happy Birthday to David too! In addition to being a Band Teacher, David is also a Drummer Extraordinaire! Thanks for making the trip to the MTNA in Las Vegas.

Ultimate Music Theory Jo Plunket and Grace HoffFrom L - R: Shelagh, myself, Jo Plunket from Florida and Grace Hoff from Vancouver.

Congratulations Grace on starting the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course.

Grace took the BIG first step to register, then the 2nd step to clear off her desk and now Grace is working on step 3... STARTING to watch the videos and complete the UMTC Course.

Come on Grace, we know you can do it!

If Lang Lang can inspire us through his music, we can all inspire each other to accomplish our goals too! Goal Setting with Accountability is the Way to Score Success!

Suzanne GreerSuzanne Greer UMTC Grad stopped by and shared the super exciting news of her new SG Music Studio which will include the UMT Club Classes.

We are so excited for you Suzanne!

It's always great to set new goals, be inspired by everyone from Lang Lang to networking with other teachers and just picking up a new idea and running with it!

Can't wait to see your new studio. Congratulations with your continued success!

Suzanne also picked up our NEW Peculiar Pets!

Attending live events such as the MTNA Conference in Las Vegas gives us the opportunity to see new teaching techniques, hear new ideas and showcase our new products too!

Peculiar Pets - Julianne Warkentin-DickWe are pleased to present Peculiar Pets - 20 Elementary Piano Solos.

I'm sure Lang Lang would LOVE these creative piano solos from Canadian Composer Julianne Warkentin-Dick.

Your students will be so excited to choose which "Peculiar Pet" piano solo they would like to learn first.

The Peculiar Pets Piano Solos include a scale at the bottom of each page for students to play and explore the sound.

All Key Signatures up to 4 flats and 4 sharps are used along with a variety of Time Signatures. It's a "Must Have" for your studio. Check out "Peculiar Pets".

Everyone enjoyed the MTNA Conference 2015 - from Lang Lang to Shelagh and I - We all had a blast in Fabulous Las Vegas!

What happens in Vegas... Doesn't have to STAY in Vegas!
