I am looking forward to seeing my students again tomorrow and make sure when you come to see my beautiful new picture windows!  So happy.  Also my room has been painted and looks clean and new!

I am also excited to give you details of the next Durham Music Teachers Association Playathon, which will be held at Dr Frank Pitman’s studio at Sutton Station, 5836 Fayetteville Rd, Studio 10, Durham NC 27713 on Saturday April 30.  Dr Pitman is very generously lending one of his really nice pianos and it will be situated in the breezeway close by his studio.  

I have asked for the hour between 2-3 on the Saturday and I really hope many of my students will participate.  The playathon raises money for the DMTA scholarships which is a very worthy cause – they help students to experience music lessons which they may not otherwise be able to afford. It is also a rare opportunity for my students to play for their colleagues and for our community.  Sadly I have not been able to find a venue for my usual Soirées.  I will be asking students in lessons this week if they can participate but of course parents are involved!  Maybe you could combine a trip to the Mall on that Saturday.

Here are more details from the DMTA:
