Hello everyone! Welcome to Fall 2020! It’s so great to be working with all of you; for those of you who are new to me, I am so pleased to meet you, and for those of you from the summer, I’m excited to continue our journey!

Below I will include some homework suggestions for each of you. Since it’s only the first week of the semester, it’ll be pretty light/open. In the future, I’ll try to always include constructive ideas that I’d like you to look at each week as well as a recommended time to practice daily/weekly. Always though, keep in mind that the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy yourself! These are suggestions and recommendations, and I completely understand that life will always come first! Stay happy and healthy, and try to work your music practice in to your schedules in a way that complements that happy and healthy lifestyle! Practice DOES make perfect, as the saying goes, but the most important thing is to enjoy what you’re doing :)

Parents, if you have any questions, please let me know at the beginning or end of the lessons. I’m always happy to chat with you!
