Spring, Texas – May 10th, 2017: Practice. It’s not the most fun word ever created and it’s definitely not a favorite activity of music students. But the Rhythm Music School has helped to solve that age old problem by being the first school in Spring, TX, Tomball, TX and The Woodlands TX to license the system.
The music teaching system is being used by music schools across the US and Canada to inspire music students to practice more and enhance their love for music.
Similar to karate belt tests, every 90 days or so, students have a test with their private music instructor.
When they pass they receive really cool color wristbands with the name of the level they passed. They also receive a certificate and at some levels a trophy.
The system has been a great help to owner Andrew Muema to help inspire his students. About the system he says:
[blockquote style=”1″]”It’s totally a game changer. Parents are able to monitor the progress of their children. Moreover, kids and teens love it. They are motivated to practice their pieces knowing that wristbands and trophies are earned and not bought.”[/blockquote]
The Musical Ladder System® has also been a big hit with local music students and their parents as evidenced by the Rhythm Music School Facebook page which showcases pictures of the students when they pass their achievement tests.
Parent Mangi Thomas says about the system and what it has done for her child:
[blockquote style=”1″]”My daughter Pelo is very motivated because she wants to move to the next level. In the past, it was a struggle to get her to practice. But now she doesn’t need to be reminded because she is looking forward to advance to the next level.”[/blockquote]

Bernie’s Backyard Food Truck Park Closes It’s Doors
Spring, Texas – September 16th, 2017: After just two years in business, Bernie’s Backyard has officially closed their doors. The announcement came as a surprise to many when a for lease sign was placed on the property and an announcement was posted to their Facebook page.
“Bernie’s Backyard is suspending operations until further notice. The hurricane has affected our infrastructure. We appreciate all of you who have supported us. We will be closed until further notice. Thank you all!”
Although Bernie’s Backyard didn’t directly state they were closing their doors on Facebook, their staff confirmed with Spring Happenings via a direct message that they have closed the facility.
We stopped by to assess the damage to their “infrastructure” but found several perfectly standing buildings with not apparent damage to the exterior and an empty parking lot where the food trucks once parked.
Doug Powell posted a review to Google just four weeks ago saying “Bernie needs to get his act together. Friday @ 1pm and only 2 out of 5 trucks are open? And $6.50 for a draft beer??”
Bernie’s Backyard would not comment on specifics of their closing but did tell us that the property is for lease at a rate of $15,000.00 per month.
Harvey Upgraded To Category 2 Hurricane; Sustained Winds Nearing 110 MPH
Spring, Texas – August 25th, 2017 (NHC): Hurricane Harvey is dangerously approaching the Texas coast, centered as of 5 a.m. CDT about 165 miles (265 km) southeast of Corpus Christi. On the forecast track, Harvey will make landfall on the middle Texas coast tonight or early Saturday. Harvey is then likely to meander near or just inland of the middle Texas coast through the weekend. Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher gusts – a strong Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some additional strengthening is possible, and Harvey is expected to become a major hurricane with sustained winds up to 120 mph before it reaches the middle Texas coast.
A Storm Surge Warning continues from Port Mansfield to High Island Texas and a Storm Surge Watch from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande. A Hurricane Warning continues from Port Mansfield to Sargent and a Tropical Storm Warning from north of Sargent to High Island and from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande. A Hurricane Watch continues from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande and a Tropical Storm Watch continues from south of the Mouth of the Rio Grande to Boca de Catan, Mexico.
Harvey is expected to be a major hurricane at landfall, bringing life-threatening storm surge, rainfall, and wind hazards to portions of the Texas coast. Preparations to protect life and property should be completed this morning, as tropical-storm-force winds will first arrive in the hurricane and storm surge warning areas later today.
