- No class next week - and no private lessons after this Friday so we'll see you at your Friday lesson or in two weeks!
- Start thinking about summer plans. Our 2015 Capistrano Institute is July 5-11. This is a great opportunity for you and your child to receive daily music instruction and be surrounded by other musicians who are working with you on the same kinds of music. You'll also get to see more advanced students as a preview of what you'll be doing soon!
- We heard part of "Listening like a Maniac" today in group class. This video is part of the SAA's "Parents as Partners Online" series and is available to stream online from now until June. Curious to hear the last part of the "Listening like a Maniac" video (which includes a student's perspective on the listening 10x10x10x challenge)? Want to hear more tested and proven practice ideas? Your tuition this semester includes access to these videos, so once you've registered for class this semester I'll be signing you up. Look for an email from the SAA with instructions on how to access these inspirational videos.
- Current students who haven't already done so, please REGISTER online for this semester now.
Finally a big CONGRATULATIONS to Maddie and Sabine who both completed their "Twinkle" graduation performance at Zipper Hall in downtown L.A. last Sunday afternoon!
Have a musical two weeks!
