Traveling to some of the world’s most recognized landmarks can truly be the highlight of one’s life. If you’ve ever been to Yellowstone, then you know the sense of awe that you experience with the breathtaking views and scenery. If you’ve ever stared in wonder at the stones that make up Yosemite National Park, you understand the magnitude of creation and your finite existence in comparison. It’s experiences like these that remind us we’re alive – often confronted with the timelessness of these monuments knowing that perhaps millions of people for thousands of years have seen basically the exact same wonder. Knowing this gives us a sense of being connected to the past as well as confronted with our mortality in a non-morbid way but in a truly existential approach. Perhaps you’ve had similar experiences in other parts of the world where their history is much older than here in the US. The Blarney Castle, home of the Blarney Stone (legendary for its powers to give anyone who kisses it the gift of eloquent gab), which is over 600 years old. Beholding something man-made yet timeless can give an equally stunning sense of awe.

When many people think of piano lessons, they envision a poor, hapless child, chained to the piano bench being forced under duress to take his or her piano lessons. In reality, however, nothing could be further from the truth. The fact of the matter is that most young people actually enjoy their piano lessons, and go on to learn a life long pastime that delivers great rewards and satisfaction.
When a younger child takes formal piano lessons from an accomplished teacher, something magic happens. Hand-eye coordination is one of the main skills that is honed to perfection, along with a keen eye that is developed for musical skills and appreciation that can be attained in no other way.
The piano encompasses every note, style, movement and learning possibility that there is in music. All music can be played on the piano, and it is the piano that is used by songwriters to work out the notes and scales of a new tune, as taught by Lenore Music (CA). Piano teaches order, discipline and practicing something that is progressively satisfying and permanent to the highest degree. It is a skill in one sense that is learned by continued practice, but it eventually becomes more than just a skill, it becomes a lifestyle.
Piano Teacher on the Importance of Lessons
The piano is something that you do practice, and at first it is awkward, difficult and full of mistakes along the way. But as a person learns, is taught, practices and plays, the piano becomes a part of the student, as if it were to be an extension of oneself. There are numerous piano courses in the marketplace that offer excellent lessons and practice routines in an electronic and digital format. But as good as these lessons are, there is really no substitute for a real live person who knows what they are doing when instructing piano students. When you do well on your scales on a certain day, and you receive praise, with a “job well done,” there is nothing like it!
It probably cannot be proven, but the bonding that takes place when a student has a real live instructor is priceless when it comes to passing on a tradition as much as just the skill that comes with piano playing. For info if you’re local visit the Oceanside studio location.
Studies have shown that people who play the piano seem to do better in school, they have developed a discipline that carries over into other areas of pursuit. Plus, they have learned a wonderful skill that they will enjoy for the rest of their life.
If you’ve been here before, you know how much we love the rustic look of our rooms and office. Recently we got personalized decals for our walls that have not only given us a great feeling about the concierge area but we’ve gotten a ton of feedback from people asking about where we got them. As you can see from the pictures, we’re very contemporary and modern now which is great for us since we have always wanted to balance the outdoors with the interior design. We got some of the vinyl decals customized from pictures we sent in to have made in to something that would compliment our design intent with the great outdoors and something that would give our visitors the “wow” experience.
Outdoor Feel on the Inside Walls
The outdoor life here at the Yellowstone in is what people come for. And since we have so many people around at night time when the sun is not shining on the mountains and hills outside, we brought some of that aesthetic indoors. It is also complimented by the wood that the inn is built with, giving our visitors a complete submersion in the culture and nature of the surroundings.
So the next time you stop by, look around and let us know what you think about our awesome new look!
