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.
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.
Happy New Year to Everyone.
I hope you've all had a safe holiday.
Coming up soon:
