That's right...school days are right around the corner. It's time for violin students across the area to return from their practicing sabbaticals and crack open their cases again. This is a busy time of year for music teachers and music stores such as Alexandria Music Company, Foxes Music and Brobst Violin Shop, as families flock to rent instruments and sign up for lessons. If you or your child are planning on learning an instrument this fall, I highly recommend signing up for some private lessons. (And not just because I'm a music teacher!) Individual lessons offer a source of motivation, inspiration, and challenge, particularly for students who are just starting out on their musical journey. Contact me for more information!
