There is a lot going on in the next week so I thought I’d post it all to make sure we were all on the same page.


As many of you know, next week there is a RECITAL on May 4th at 6:30pm.

It will be held at the Belmont LDS Chapel (off of the 2). The address is 15 Ledgewood Place.

• Students are asked to arrive 10-15 minutes early so they can arrive calmly, get tuned, and find a seat.

• Sunday dress is required of all performing (no jeans, no flip-flops) and requested of all attending.

• If performing, make sure to bring your instrument and your music (even if you aren’t using it…just in case).

• Please feel free to invite family and friends and to bring a treat to share after the recital.


In preparation for next week’s recital, I will be holding STUDIO CLASS at my house on Monday, April 30th @ 6pm. This is open to any students interested in practicing performing their piece prior to the recital. It will be 30 minutes long.


Also on Monday, April 30th @ 5pm is the Make-Up Group Class for Twinkle Group 1 which I moved from last week. Thanks for your flexibility!


A pdf of the MAY CALENDAR is now available under “Calendars and Events”Please print it off and keep a copy so you know when I am teaching and when I am not. As many of you know, I am currently taking additional Suzuki Teacher Training at the Hartt School of Music in Connecticut. One of the requirements for the class is to complete a certain number of observation hours prior to the end of the semester. Due to this I am not teaching on May 1st (which was included on the semester calendar distributed at the end of January). I have made arrangements in my teaching schedule to make sure all Tuesday students receive the correct number of lessons to make up for this day. If you would like an additional copy of the semester calendar (it is yellow), I have them on my piano.


All of you should have received the SUMMER SCHEDULING information at this point. If you have not arranged your lesson times, please contact me ASAP–even if you are planning to keep the same time as you had during the school year. I need to know what you are planning so I can arrange all my other students. I am planning to teach Mondays (pm), Tuesdays (am/pm) and Wednesdays (am/pm). Thursdays I will be in Lincoln (pm).


All the information about scheduling can be found in my last post. If you have questions please call me. It is much easier to do this over the phone rather than in an email. If there are specific times you would like, the sooner you schedule the more likely they will be available and consistent over the entire summer. Thank you to those who have already scheduled!
