We started the new year with a new resolution, and so far we’ve stuck to it. Congratulations! We have explored Baroque and early Classical music, in preparation for our Spring Recital, and we have made some good selections. I am hoping each of you has at least two pieces to play; we will continue to play through more selections to make the final decision in the next few weeks.
Our Spring Recital is always a Big Event. We are fortunate to play again this year at St. Anne’s in Annapolis. Mark your calendar! Sunday, May 1, with an on-site practice on Saturday, April 16.
January weather hit us hard, and who knows what February has to offer. I need to repeat my snow policy: I do not have one. Please do not assume that when schools are closed, so are lessons. Too many times the County has over reacted, and the roads are fine. When in doubt, call. Always call.
I know it’s cold, but we need to think about your Spring Break. I have students from different schools, with different vacation dates. I have worked into the piano year schedule one floating holiday, to accommodate everyone. Please let me know in advance of your spring break plans, so I then can plan around them. And play that piano!
