Hi Lillian,
I have quite a bit of unused music that I need to sell (at a discounted price) as I will not be teaching children anymore, only adults as we have recently moved to Sun City and the likelihood of getting young students is very unlikely.  Anyway, the majority of the music is Alfred supplemental music, theory and various levels of their method books.  Teachers can reach me by  cell 512/ 588-9600.
Best wishes to everyone.
Nancy Anton

Dear Colleagues,

Greetings from San
Marcos! I hope everyone is having a nice fall. I wanted to let you know
that we are set with our plans for the 8th Texas State International
Piano Festival. We will once again have our concerto competition (video
due on March 1), our blind competition (winner will be a guest soloist with the Round Rock
Symphony during their 2016/2017 season), and we will be holding our
featured competition called the ‘Patrick W. Price Piano Competition’.
The winner of this competition will have 5 concert engagements, including 3 universities and 2 national concert series.
You can find all the information on our brand new website at

Last year, we videotaped many of our events from the 7th festival. If you would like to see the video, please click here.

We are also looking to do some special events for the piano educators in the area. I will keep you posted.

Thank you all, I wish you all a great thanksgiving!
