One hit wonder

In this video clip Jared Folk demonstrates his one-handed roll on the snare drum. Jared was a former piano student of Kindermusik Educator Darcie Brown, and she blogged this update about her former student this week.

Marketing tip: Make a "graduate gallery." Ever run into your former students around town, or their parents? If they're up to something musical, and even if they're not, consider asking for a picture and making a "proud graduate" gallery in your studio, or your Web site online. Include little interesting tid-bits about their lives today and put it in a short, bio format. You could also mail those past families a postcard and ask for and update. Even if the child is only a few years out of Kindermusik, it could be the beginning of a gallery that you update year after year. For example:

Kindermusik graduate: Molly McGinn, 31
Kindermusik years: Our Time and Imagine That!
Favorite memory: Singing with my mom and dad in class and on the ride home
About Molly: Molly is a writer living in Greensboro, North Carolina. She plays guitar, piano, ukulele, and harmonica.
