Did you participate in this year’s challenge? Let us know how you liked it.

We challenge you to learn the piece of your dreams!

What is the one piece you’ve always dreamed of playing?

The piece you’ll get around to learning “one day?”

The piece you’ve been putting off for “when there’s time?”

This is the year to Dream BIG during the 30 Day Practice Challenge!

(It’s too late to sign up for this year’s challenge, but check back in December for our 2022 edition!)
