Each year, something new happens, and something makes an impression in my mind as a teacher. Something gets in the way, and something clears the way. Each year, I am excited to see what will happen next. :)
This past year in review, since the beginning of June 2013, last summer…
- Many, new students entered the studio, and there is a long waiting list.
- I both tightened and relaxed certain aspects of the studio policy.
- Website has grown, and the studio has seen an increase in the number of students.
- We switched from Tonic Tutor to MusicLearningCommunity to PianoMaestro.
- We switched from Music Teacher’s Helper to MyMusicStaff.
- We had a bigger, more varied Christmas recital than ever… guitar, and several voice performers were added to the program of mostly piano entries.
- Many students have been highlighted on this website for great accomplishments, and for participating in new studio games.
- Kaitlyn sang with Carrie Underwood, as part of Make a Wish Foundation.
- I have been in the ER and urgent care, and been on at least 10 different typical meds with bad reactions to several, but that should be over. I have been feeling great, and have more energy than I have had in years, and getting better naturally.
- Local vacations a few times.
- My brother met a wonderful young lady, and they are engaged now!
