Just a couple of things:

1. Click on Summer Schedule to see open places in the 5 summer weeks I am teaching. As people let me know if they want lessons July 22 – August 20 I will put your name on this schedule. I will be working on this while I am in Australia so just email me.

2. Fall schedule is getting organized now and I have students waiting for lesson times between 4-7 each day (Fridays to 6) so if you are not continuing please let me know. (I will put up the Fall schedule in August). Sometimes students take lessons for a few years and then other interests become paramount and that is very understandable. It is so good to at least have some music lessons and especially if you take them for 3-4 years, you can always come back to it later. In these times where jobs are so critical and studies in those areas where the skills acquired are in demand, I have to admire parents and students who commit to the arts. Of course there are careers in the arts, lots of them, but sadly not well-paid but as I always say it is very gratifying work, and I am so grateful myself to be able to use my skills and knowledge to teach in my own home. Love it!

3. Congratulations to all who took part in the Soiree last Sunday. It was very special and I think I have personally emailed all the participants. If you missed it there will be Christmas Soiree of course mid December. The Soirees are hard work for all concerned but once there you can see how wonderful it is for students to see each other perform. Thank you to all the parents who came to support their families and friends. I have some videos which I will put up on my blog (thanks to Roger Daniel!)

Have great summer, and be safe – I am very excited about going to Australia to see my granddaughters (age 3 and 7) and daughter and son-in-law.
