"Jack Conqueroo" performing 07-15 Sunday Afternoon
Deep within the Bayous and mangroves of the Louisiana swamp a child is born to a coonass alligator poacher with a penchant for gator tail and moonshine. He is raised amidst the moss and mangroves, transfixed, transformed by the sights and sounds of the landscape . He runs away from home at the age of 5 with the Midway carnival parked outside his father's shack, hell-bent on making it in show business; but not before stealing his “papa”'s (Jacques Sr.) guitar. He picks & pounds at rusty strings and the hollow wood for anyone with a nickel or willing to listen. Like a good file gumbo, he simmers to taste, bringing out years of seasoning. Listen carefully; you can hear the howl of Gulf Coast hurricane, the sticky, sweltering, muddiness of the riverbanks, and the lonesome sound of the wind blowing through buscios of Jack Conqueroo's home in all of his songs.

鋼琴是學音樂的基礎，在一系列的課程規劃上，我們採互動式教學方法，讓小朋友直接跟老師零距離接觸。純美式教學風格，活潑多樣極富創造力，沒有任何學習壓力，讓學習變成是一種自然形成的習慣，是種自發性的學習，中英文式的雙語教學，亦可讓小朋友在學習過程中自然而然習慣二種語言，進而達到另一學習收穫。Piano is one of the fundamental instruments for learning music. Our music studio adopts an interactive teaching method to enable the students to have direct musical connection with the teacher. All lessons are taught in North American style(under English and Mandarin bilingual environment with a strong focus in English), emphasis on variety and creativity. A positive reinforcement environment will increase the students' comprehension process for music & duo languages to become a natural part of their daily lives.
