[12/19/19]   Well, that’s a wrap! The last of three performances was last night when my piano and voice students performed in front of a very appreciative audience of friends and family at Graves Piano & Organ Company. I am so proud to teach each and every one of you, to witness the progress you make and how you grow as musicians and performers. It’s truly an honor. Thank you to all those who make it possible for me to do what I love in this world, in this town. And thank you to my husband for being my primary supporter, producer, videographer, photographer, and roadie. Can’t wait to see what 2020 will bring!

Two performances down, one to go in the form of my student recital tomorrow night. In preparation for that, today is cookie baking day. For my own piece, after 30 years of practicing it, I think I am finally ready to perform Debussy’s Clair de Lune. Wish us luck!

It’s choir concert season so here are some quick warm-ups you can do on the fly!

[11/29/19]   A Day After Thanksgiving Poem

Twas the morning after turkey day and all through the house,
My blood sugar was up and my pants had to be let out.
The dishes were piled by the sink with no regard,
For how ate I so much or how slept I so hard.
With Pa still snoring away and me clutching my tea,
I face a day of chores, no shopping spree for me.
But in my heart I exclaim amid the aftermath’s mess,
May your turkey day be filled, as mine was, with the spirit of thankfulness.
