I am back, Students and Parents!
What a journey it has been to Scandinavia and Northern Europe. My favorite activity was reuniting with friends and former students. Pictured below in Germany, is former student Phillip, ready to start a new piece of sheet music. Sister Emma and mother Renate, not pictured, were also there to greet us. Switzerland had its musical moments when I found this G clef sign outside a small music conservatory. A little rest in Varenna, Italy, for 3 days was most welcome in our demanding itinerary. There we were enveloped in aromas of sweet alyssum united with wafts of bubbling pasta sauce as we walked the promenades in Varenna, Italy. Finally, we stopped to see friends in Belgium and again in Germany, where I reunited with former students Marten and Merle. How fun!
Now that lessons have resumed, students Andrew Harrington, Victoria Katei, and Christopher Lancaster are preparing to play in the Jazz /Pop Festival this Saturday 2:30 pm, at Heritage Park Baptist Church, 2732 FM 528, Webster, TX, 77598. All are welcome to hear real jazzy music during several recitals that day.
Remember our Holiday Recital coming up on December 12, 2:30 pm, at Brookdale Senior Living, 1310 Friendswoood Drive South, Friendswood, TX 77546! Playlist will include Christmas carols, classical pieces, and contemporary tunes, both solos and duets. Please bring 1 dozen cookies or small muffins to share for our party afterwards.
