Latest Music "Notes"

January 1, 2021

Welcome to 2021! 2020 was full of new challenges for students, teachers, and families everywhere. My hope for 2021 is that I am soon able to safely share space with all of my incredible music makers and experience the joy that is making music together. 

Even though a lot was different, I am grateful for the unique opportunities it provided. Digital lunch bunches with siblings, meeting dozens and dozens of family pets, Google meet giggles and smiles during morning meetings, dance parties during Holiday Bingo, at-home performance videos, and watching my students continue to develop their musicianship with new levels of independence all show me that distance learning has still allowed for growth and relationships in a uniquely beautiful way. 

Guidance for reopening schools continues to fluctuate often and I say "thank you" in advance for your continued work with your children, flexibility, perseverance, and collaboration to provide students with high quality learning experiences in this abnormal season. 

With all of that said, I look forward to many more memories in the months to come and can't wait to see what all you create!
