Happy 2017! I'm so excited to begin fresh new music and activities with the students in January. After all the excitement of the holiday season, it's more important than ever to keep up the energy and enthusiasm for learning music during the winter months. All students will begin the new year with brand new pieces, and I'll be introducing some new winter-themed theory games and activities to enhance the students' learning experience and keep them engaged. I'm planning for a spring recital this year (date TBD), so we'll begin working towards that performance goal. Best wishes for a healthy, happy and prosperous new year!
