Paying It Forward…(pianos, scholarships, and more!)

Major thanks to Lincoln local Ben Nieves, owner/operator of The Piano Store in  Rocklin, for outfitting our Lincoln Professional Center location with this beautiful Steinway and Sons baby grand! You will not believe the gorgeous, mellow tone of this beauty.  We were able to move the upright Kawaii into Studio B in Twelve Bridges, so now both studios are equipped with both traditional and digital piano models.  Thank you Ben, for your generosity and community partnership.  All pianos at both studios can be bought by contacting The Piano Store.

To celebrate, Tamraloo Music is paying it forward! First up:  TLM is offering it’s first two new booked piano students use of a digital piano FREE for the entire semester!  This is a perfect opportunity to take piano and practice at home with absolutely no committment in buying an instrument.  These pianos won’t last long, so contact us today!

In addition, Tamraloo has donated a full sized digital piano to Lincoln’s own Lincoln Theater Company for it to use in upcoming productions.  We are excited for LTC’s upcoming production of The Music Man and can’t wait to see what’s in store next.

Finally, Tamraloo Music has created a scholarship for students attending William Jessup University.  Music students will be eligible to receive the scholarship beginning in 2017. WJU has blessed the lives of many of Tamraloo’s teachers, including Miss Tamie herself, who received her Music Degree through WJU.  This is one small way we say THANK YOU and encourage new music students along the path that we have walked before.

How can YOU pay it forward in 2017?  Here’s to a year of discovery, generosity, and compassion.  “You rise by lifting others” – Robert Ingersoll.

From All of Us to All of You,

We have been blessed with extraordinary growth this year and it has been a joy and a privilege to watch so many students develop a love of music in 2016.  Tamraloo Music’s students and teachers are out in their community participating in bands, musicals, orchestras, plays, Girls and Boys Scouts, student government, dance, sports, volunteer organizations, bowling leagues, philanthropic organizations, and youth groups all over Placer County.  Music develops confidence, poise, brain/body connection, and most importantly, it lights a spark within that only a study of the arts can do.  Tamraloo encourages their students in all their pursuits and cheers them on!!

Watch for our next post about the ways in which Tamraloo Music was able to give back in 2016, and join us for an amazing 2017 – the best is yet to BE!!
