Term 2 Starts this Monday

Dear Families,
Term 2 starts this Monday April 13. I hope you've all enjoyed some time off. Autumn Festival was great this year, it was lovely to bump into students who seemed to be enjoying themselves. Here's a great quote which encapsulates how I feel when I teach:

"The soul is healed by being with children"
Fyodor Dostoevsky

Looking forward to seeing you all this week.
From Georgina

Welcome Back

Dear Families,
Welcome back, I hope everyone has had a safe and happy holiday. This year is special to me as it marks the 20th year of violin teaching as well as my 40th year of living! I am now catching up with students that are in university that I've been teaching since they were little kids. Time flies.

Here are some important dates for this 8 WEEK term:

Start Term 1: Monday 2nd February
Last day Term 1: Saturday 28 March
Solo Concert Date: Sunday 22nd February: 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm. Please choose your concert time and let me know
Labor Day Public Holiday: Monday 2nd March, no lessons
Suzuki Association Autumn Festival: 9th-11th April

Please remember to try to arrive 5 minutes prior to your lesson time and unpack quietly. At the end please exit quietly so the next student can commence their lesson.

I encourage everyone to attend group class, it is a crucial part of the Suzuki teaching method and allows students to play in a group context. Group class is held on Friday afternoons from 4:30-5:20pm at the Fordham Avenue Scout Hall. Saturday Group class is currently full as it's held in my studio.

See you all next week, keen and ready to go!

Yours sincerely,
Georgina Mead

SIDS Charity Play-Through

Hi Everyone,
Our first charity Play-Through is coming up! Here are the details:

Having trouble motivating the kids in the holidays? Then come to the SIDS play through. 
Starting from Twinkles we play through to Book 4, then selected pieces to the highest book level present.
This is a fundraising event for a good cause, the SIDS Foundation. A gold coin (or more, up to you) is all that is needed. I am donating my time and expertise and the cost of the hire of the venue.
January 22nd, 10am-11am
Hello Mandarin
Level 1
52-54 Rutland Rd, Box Hill VIC 3128
Please remove your shoes upon entering, thank you.
Students from other teachers are welcome. Please make sure you do not leave children under 10 years of age unattended.
Then you’ll miss out! We start tuning at 10am, then start straight away. If you miss the piece you’re up to, then sadly there will be no back tracking. We have a lot to cover!
Please contact me!
0412 602 372
In memory of Sam
You weren’t here for long on this earth, but we won’t forget you!
