July 2nd, 2018

   Excellent job to everyone who performed at the Anchorage Downtown Market this weekend! Despite missing more than a week of lessons, we managed to put a great set together :-) Our next performance will be on September 1st at the Alaska State Fair. The details for this are still in the works, so stay tuned for updates! 

   After battling Strep Throat for a couple of weeks, I am finally feeling well enough to teach again. (Whew!) For those who are around, I will be doing an extra day of group classes on July 2nd to make up for the missed weeks in June. Summer group classes will continue through the summer on Mondays at my parents house in South Anchorage. (Please email me for the address if you don't have it already!) Twinkle Tots (ages 3-5) will start at 4:00, Twinkle Stars (ages 5 & up) will start at 4:30, and Twinkle Graduates will start at 5:00. As you might have noticed, this is split up a bit more than past semesters. We will likely keep a similar schedule on into the Fall (only we will move back to the classroom at the Unitarian Fellowship.)

  There are still some spots open for private lessons in July & August. If you haven't included any music into your schedule yet, whether it be from lessons, workshops, or music camps, I would highly advise getting something in before your child forgets a lot of what they worked so hard on in the Spring. An intensive (3 days in a row of lessons) is a great way to do a quick catch-me-up without a lot of practice involved and is great for families who are only free for lessons one or two weeks out of the summer. For a full list of summer lesson dates, head to my schedule page, or email me for a list of what is available.  

   Registration for the Fall Semester is now up and running for all new and returning families and is due by August 27th! As always, please be sure to look over the Fall Semester Schedule and my updated Studio Policies before registering. The Fall Semester will begin with private lessons September 4th through December 21st with our Winter Recital scheduled for December 15th. Please mark these dates down now as they will be included in your tuition. (For more information about what is included, please read through the info on my Lesson Rates page.) 

   I think this is all the info for this month. Please check back regularly for updates as well as some learning material. It is so wonderful to watch my students grow into musicians and into young adults, and then to see new generations begin the journey at the same time. Keep up the good work, everyone and have a wonderful and safe summer!
