Is March going to be “in like a lamb and out like a lion”?  Seems as if we have barely had winter – I have not even broken out the serious pea-coat! 

There are a few things I need to remind you about:

I am taking a spring break from April 6-18.  I hope to get some down time but sadly the break begins with major dental work and will probably be filled with getting over it.  However, I am grateful I have access to great dental work and my dentist gives me gas for the pain and agony.  Lessons will resume April 21 after the break. The break should not be too disruptive as  most students also have spring breaks around these two weeks.

I have committed to students playing for 1/2 hour in the DMTA Playathon Saturday April 25            from 2:30 – 3 pm.  This time the Playathon will be back at Northgate Mall as Brightleaf has new owners who so far have not agreed to host us there. I really need some students to commit to playing on the lovely grand piano Hopper’s supply for us or singing in the acoustically responsive space, or playing ukulele duets with me. These playathons raise money to pay the fees for students and parents who find difficulty financing music lessons.  The money is raised by each student who plays contributing $5 plus donations. (DMTA – Durham Music Teachers Association)

Adult students:  I am the Chair of the DMTA’s adult student recital Saturday March 28 from 3:00  to 5:00 at Croasdaile Chapel. Previous adult performances have varied from beginners to advanced so please consider playing.  It is fun to see what other adults are attempting.  All instrumentalists and singers are welcome.  I will be taking names in March!

March fees:

Please check your emails for where I have put a payment forward after an excused missed lesson.

Monday  and Tuesday students 5 lessons in March

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday students 4 lessons in March and you can add that day in April that falls before the spring break if you wish.

Thanks always for learning music with Flourishing Muse Studio.
