November Newsletter

Hello everyone!
 
November is here and what an exciting time it is! Perhaps not so much for the fact that we just took our clocks back an hour due to daylight savings time ending this past Sunday, but for the fact that we are approaching this wonderful next few weeks of preparations and celebrations, and as we get closer to the holidays.
 
As well all know, one of the things that makes the month of November so emblematic and special is Thanksgiving, and what better way to celebrate than by bringing families and friends together for an occasion of joy, peace and thankfulness?
 
Last year was undoubtedly a strange one, a year where we couldn’t celebrate as most of us would have wanted, but as we keep riding the train back to normality with beautiful times ahead, we want to take this opportunity and wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving! 
 
 

Our Thanksgiving Playlist!

Thanksgiving is often seen as a feast, from eating Turkey, gravy and mashed potatoes, to pecan pie, apple pie and pumpkin pie, to name a few. But what about musical traditions in Thanksgiving?
 
Well, the truth is that we don’t have a staple song or a particular sound when it comes to Thanksgiving music, unlike we do with Christmas or Halloween, but we do have a number of tunes about food, family and gratitude that perfectly match the occasion! 
 
So whether you are doing a big feast this year or keeping it on a small scale, here’s our Thanksgiving playlist made out of 24 songs that will surely cheer you up and create the perfect Thanksgiving setting and perhaps give you some inspiration to add some of your favorite tunes to the playlist for a perfect Thanksgiving celebration this year!

Looking for a Piano Tuner?

It is always a good idea to look into tuning our pianos and make sure they are in good condition as we enter the holiday season.
 
If you have a piano that needs to be tuned, pitch raised, repaired or just needs some maintenance, we highly recommend our local piano tuner “Mark Ruhland”. 
 
You can reach him at (805) 338-8515 or by email at ruhlands@verizon.net and make sure to let him know you take lessons with 123 Rock!

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
