Welcome into HOTTTTT August! Hope you all are staying nice and cool out there! Here in LA is over 100 degrees daily, lately! But no complaints, we are blessed with wonderful weather year round, and... with ice-cold A/C! 🙂

We wanted to share some exciting news: for one, we are currently preparing to shoot a commercial aimed at informing the online community about Oksana's upcoming LIVE & ARCHIVED PIANO LESSONS! The idea is to have Oksana teach a LIVE Piano class every Saturday morning (Pacific Time) and then archive it for later viewing by those who couldn't participate in real time. We are working with top professionals and we anticipate the commercial to be very beautiful. We are filming it net week on a Flychord Digital Piano and on Nicolas Cage's ex-Ferrari-red baby grand. Most likely it will be ready for unveiling with next month's newsletter! Stay tuned!

Welcome to July, everyone! This is a very special month for us, and we hope for you as well! This month, among other things, we are celebrating 17 years of blissful marriage. The family decided to go RV camping for the occasion - I was out-numbered.... As most of you know it's now three of us (with our seven year old future CEO Alessandro).

We plan to celebrate the 4th of July at the Paseo Club in the company of great friends. Should you wish to join us, simply let us know. Regardless of where you spend yours, please be safe and have a fantastic time celebrating the birth of the independence of this wonderful country.
