I absolutely love this time of year. My continuing students are rejuvenated and excited about starting a new grade in school. Many of them are outgrowing their original violins and violas and trading them in for larger and better-sounding instruments. Some students who have been studying with me for several years enjoy looking back on all of the progress they have made. And of course, brand-new students sign on for lessons. I always love getting to know new students: learning their stories and background, understanding their learning styles, and helping them discover why playing music is so much fun.
This is also the time of year when I get to start planning for recitals and group lessons. Stay tuned for dates on both of those events. Happy September!
