I hope you are all settling into the rhythm of the new school year. I can definitely sense my students' renewed energy for their instrument. Beyond lessons, I've got exciting events and partnerships planned to keep your violinist energized throughout the year. Please read for more...

As many students are progressing and learning more tunes, participating in jams will be even more enjoyable. Please save the following dates for our scheduled jams and performances. In addition, I am partnering with other musicians and neighborhood teachers to keep growing this musical community. More on that later.

Thanks to the returning families who responded and participated in the policy quiz last month. I wanted to clarify one part of my policy regarding rescheduling make-up lessons. As catch-up weeks are built in opportunities to schedule make-up lessons, they are not the only time to do so. I will post regular time slots on the calendar or will convert any cancellations for make-up lessons. Please visit the calendar to see any upcoming availability or just send me an email to schedule any make-ups
Discovery Workshop Referrals
This past weekend marked the end of the Fall Discovery Workshop at the Collaboratory. We had a great time learning the position songs and all the music this instrument makes. I will be hosting a workshop again in January. If you refer a family to attend the workshop, I am happy to provide a referral credit toward tuition.

VIDEO OF THE MONTH:
Video performances have turned out to be a great way to watch our kids grow through music. And kids get excited about making them. Beginning next month, I will be featuring a student video at the end of this monthly newsletter to highlight the progress of a student.
