Snow Day for the Recital

IMG_0002.JPG   I regret to inform everyone that the Recital scheduled for tomorrow night, December 19th, is cancelled because of the impending storm.  I plan to reschedule it for (hopefully) Jan. 9th, depending on the availability of the venue.  I will let everyone know as soon as possible so that you may adjust your plans.  Have a very wonderful holiday and stay safe and warm!  Lessons resume January 5th.

The recital is planned for Dec. 19th, this Friday, at 7:30pm.  Please note the time change.  Hopefully this will give parents who work outside the area more time after work to travel to the venue.  Also, as of tonight (Wednesday at 8:30) the recital is still scheduled.  If the snowstorm materializes into a big event, as the weather service predicts, we will reschedule it.  I will call everyone if I choose to reschedule.  My main concern is everyone’s safety in traveling, and secondarily, snow removal in both the parking lot and sidewalks at the church.  Please feel free to call me anytime for more information.  845-496-4247, or 845-649-8516.

Recital Coming Soon

IMG_0001.JPG  It’s Recital time again!  Here’s Kyle, going at his tune with gusto in 2007.  I look forward to hearing him, and everyone else, at the annual Holiday Recital on December 19th at 7 p.m.  The venue is the same as last year:  The LDS (Mormon) church on Mt. Airy Road in New Windsor.  Directions are: From Newburg and Cornwall Area, from Five Corners in Vails Gate, travel west on 94 to Mt. Airy Road.  You might recognize this intersection as the one leading to Cornwall High School.  Instead of turning towards the high school, turn right (if coming from Vail’s Gate, Newburg, or Cornwall) onto Mt. Airy Road.  When you come to the T in the road, take the left.  Follow that road for about a mile, past the reservoir, and the church is on the right.  From the Washingtonville area, take 94 to the intersection of 94 and turn left (north) to the T.  I’ll hand out direction sheets at lessons during the week of the 19th.  Please RSVP on the recital ASAP.

 The adult student recital is postponed for a few months.  Several students have had surgery and other complications, so we’ll give it a go around Valentines Day.  It will be held here at my studio, informally. 

The recital will last about an hour, maybe less.  I am not combining any other teacher’s students with us this year. 

Student of the Month for December is Chris Hendricks.  Yeah, Chris–for sticking with it and progressing musically.  Chris also plays bass fiddle.  It’s a pleasure to have you each week.

How is your progress coming on the MTNA Music Achievement program?  Remember to track your practice and other goals.  If you need a little boost after the holidays, check with me.  I may have a fresh idea or two.

December’s Schedule will continue as usual until the Recital.  There are no lessons from Dec. 20-January 5th. 

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.  Let music help you ease into the holidays with less stress, and enjoy the ride.
