For teachers looking to keep track of student work & assignments a new lightweight Apple App may just fit the bill.

Private Music Studio 2 is for music teachers who want to track the progress of their students taking private lessons. Student information may be organized by semester including weekly lesson assignments, grades, and notes about student performances, accompanists, and ensemble participation.

Technique and exercise assignments may be created and saved as templates for use with other students. Points may be used if desired for assessing student progress. Teachers can send progress reports to students to remind them of assignments.

Students who also download Private Music Studio 2 may be invited to subscribe to view their lesson and assignment information from within their copy of the app.

Adam is a truly gifted performer. Here are just two examples of his playing and performance style. In the first video Adam accompanies…himself!
