We will be expanding! I am excited to announce that we are in the planning phase of expanding our music school facility to add new classrooms. By building out an area that is currently unused at our neighbor's unit, we could gain up to 300 additional square feet. This can accommodate up to two new additional rooms, one of which would be a large group room for group and band classes. 

Please pardon our dust over the next few months. We are aiming that by this fall, we should have a state-of-the-art group music room to give our students even more music education options!

Very truly yours,
Mrs. Theresa Cheng

Follow American Idol With Me: 
The winner of American Idol was just announced - Laine Hardy is the new American Idol! Although my winner prediction Alejandro Aranda did not win, he came in 2nd place and won with his originality and became a viral sensation for his original songs.

I loved seeing Alejandro's hometown visit to Pomona, CA when he was surprised by a children's choir singing his song, "Out Loud". He was emotional and said he did not have much support, and encouraged the parents of the children's choir to keep believing in and supporting their children. It was touching!

In the end it came down to Alejandro and Laine Hardy, a 19-year old from Louisiana and Elvis-style moves. Based on America's vote, Laine got the most votes and Alejandro was the runner up. Great season and hope you enjoyed it! Join me next month as I follow the new season of America's Got Talent!
