Years ago, Franz wanted to do something to set us apart from other nurseries on State Street so he said to Vicki, his wife, “Hey lets get a hundred pink flamingos and stick them out in the lawn one day and really freak people out!” She found the suppliers of pink flamingos and ordered 100 of them. The minimum, however, was 120, but what she didn’t realize was that she was ordering pairs, so we actually got 240 of the darn things!
We got our flamingos, put them out on the lawn and got a great response from all of our customers; they really thought it was funny. What we didn’t expect, was that our customers would want to buy them! We had not even planned on selling them, let alone selling out—but we did. Since then we have sold thousands of the pink birds. People from all over the country stop to look and even take pictures with them!
We have heard many amusing stories about our flamingos, we may have to write a book someday! So, if you have a story to share, please let us know! Send us an email or contact us on Facebook, or just stop by and share! The flamingos have become somewhat of their own deal—we don't tell them what to do, they run the show. We do however send them out on "flockings" once in a while though!
Get on the schedule now so you can enjoy your finished project all season!
My child 8 years old has been attending Ms. Maria's studio for almost 2 years. She really enjoys her class. Ms. Maria has effective teaching method for students that incorporate musicianship, theory, creativity and skill. Last year 2014 my child got many rewards for piano competition and theory test. I am very glad to have Ms. Maria teaching piano for my daughter. I think she is the best piano teacher ever!
I have two boys that started in January and have thrived with Ms. Maria. To our surprise our five year old proactively practices on his own at home because he truly enjoys what he's learning. We've seen both boys thrive with Ms. Maria. We are so blessed to have found someone so patient and passionate about teaching lessons. You won't find someone that cares about your child's musical development as much as Ms. Maria does. She truly cares about each child and it shows. We look forward to many more years in our musical journey!
We have tried two teachers before entering Ms. Maria studio without much progress. Since last here our daughter as been able to make great progress! We have actually recommended her studio to friends!! Ms. Maria is a great teacher!!!
Maria Mclean is such an amazing piano instructor. She assigns music that she knows the child enjoys. My daughter loves the fact that she can earn trips to the treasure box for extra time practice during the week. Maria is firm but kind, and so her students respect her and also want to please her. She gives them praise only when she should!
We are very pleased with the instruction our child is receiving from Maria McLean and would highly recommend her. She has a positive, uplifting demeanor which children respond well to. Her teaching style is well-developed and she adjusts to the personality and learning style of her students. She incorporates both playing time and theory work into her lessons, which I believe is important for a well-rounded education. After just 12 months of instruction, our child is playing like most 24+ month students.
My daughter has been going to Maria Mclean since 2013 and we absolutely love her. She is very patient, kind and makes my child very comfortable. I'm glad we found a great piano teacher in our vicinity.
My son and daughter both just turned 7 and they have been with Ms. Maria for about 8 months. They love Ms. Maria so much! She is such a wonderful teacher. I am so glad we found her. We plan to stay with her as long as we can.
