2014-2015 summary

Thank you for a great 2014-2015 teaching season.

Here are some of the highlights. We had a successful year learning to play cello.

We had a group class in September followed by a Spooky Suzuki concert. As always, our Christmas play-in before a Suzuki concert at the Methodist Church.

Then in March we brought Abigail McHugh-Grifa here to work with everyone for a successful Suzuki Festival. We had group classes followed by a great orchestra concert at the Doane Stewart School.

I was really bad about the picture taking. So if anyone has photos, please send them to me. Here are a few photos:

Happy Summer

Hope you are all enjoying the last days of summer break! Lots of great concerts to take in around the area. SPAC and Spa Little Theater to name a few.

Please check out my new Bio page, Fall Roster and Tuition page. They have all been updated. I have been a busy cellist. I have been a part of a new trio group called Stringendi. We have performance date listed on our website http://www.strigendi.com

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Park in the main (only) parking lot out front and go in the main entrance. The receptionist will direct everyone to the room for the recital.

There is limited seating and I expect some parents will be standing as residents have first priority for chairs, of course.
