Golden Key Paino School’s September 2023 Newsletter

Dear Manhattan Piano Academy Community,

We are looking forward to another school year full of music with you. We are grateful for your support and help in the past year. We cannot wait to expand and grow with you through this year!

All students are welcome and encouraged to join.

2. Calendar

Please see our 2023-24 school calendar of events on our website here. Please mark your calendar for rehearsal dates and recitals. We would love to see you take advantage of our monthly Zoom performance days. Performance days are informal and were designed to prepare the students for formal performances and stage.

3. Elaine Scholarship Fund

Teacher Chenyi is offering 2 piano lessons where the proceeds will go the The Elaine Scholarship Fund.

To sign up for the lessons, you can pay through the scholarship fund and email us to schedule a lesson.

The Elaine Scholarship Fund was set up to help students from all parts of our society have the chance to have quality lessons. Please consider donating to enrich a deserving student’s music education.

4. Referral System

Many thanks for referrals!

We have been registering students who were referred to us by current or former students of Golden Key Piano School. Believe it or not, we have even had referrals from those who are just starting their own lessons at Golden Key Piano School. We are flattered and grateful for the confidence that our students and their families have in our ability to teach.

To return the favor, for each student that is referred, we will:

  • Add $50 to our scholarship fund to make our quality lessons available to a wider community.
  • Waive the $30 registration fee for your friend as a welcome gift to our school.
  • Send you a thank you gift.

5. Students’ News

We would like to congratulate all our students who passed their exams over the summer from prep level to advanced level.

If you have any questions please call the school at (510) 665-5466 or reply to this email.

Yours truly,
Katrin Arefy
