Monteiro Studio Student Events!

For January ****


Virtual Practice Rooms  -  Every Thursday and Saturday from 4pm to 5pm (PDT)


One Hour a Day from Thursday  and Saturday I will have a Zoom Practice Room where you can Hop on and Practice with your fellow students.


After practice, we can have a quick Q&A (for 15 minutes) if you like.


I find that accountability matters when working toward a goal.  With my Virtual Practice Room, we can all have a time where for 2 hours 4 days a week, we can get up and in the Zoom Practice Room!  Everyone will be muted and we will not disturb each other (except to wave “Hi!”).  I think it is important not only to discuss how everyone should practice but SEE everyone practice.  I will be there also.  I would not ask you to practice without seeing me do the same! 

For February ****
