I try make sure siblings get separate posts but there’s not stopping friends from wanting a joint photo shoot 😂
🎻Jackson (cello) and Nick (violin) are both freshman at Briar Woods
♥️their fun fact is a quote directed at me “of course teen boys are your people they are the best kinda people”

What was once a little elective within a larger camp is now it’s own ORCHESTRA ADVENTURE camp AND Beginner Boot Camp AND pop rock electric electives. Thank you Arcola United Methodist Church and Tianna Durbin, Jen Roberts, and the entire staff for the living encouragement! Next year will be even more wild ♥️♥️♥️👏👏👏


A belated shoutout to Jackson who received the “Director’s Award” from Finn Madigan at ERMS. Also cheers to Jackson’s family who were overly dedicated to getting him to his lesson from
DC and his cello here from his house 😂😂


So these cuties used to swim together back in the day 🥰 Sasha and i pranked him and said come listen to her audition piece and we hit him with a little “shake it off”. Not missing an opportunity to troll his least favorite school he says “I’ll try and forget I saw that shirt”. Sasha quipped right back “go ahead and try your literally wearing the same shirt” Daniel …awkward silence 😂😂 me “oh we are taking a pic” Maui - never misses a photo opp


Best of luck to sweet Vishalani also auditioning for Loudoun Symphony Youth Orchestra!

Whew! Lots of teaching on this Monday holiday! I owe everyone a new student welcome of their faces but check out siblings E and N’s DAY 1 bow holds! Also - cheers to my cellist Jackson who is just a TANK - consistently plowing through book 1 and new scales! And yes - Maui inserts himself in all photos 🤦🏻‍♀️


Exciting news!!! Thanks to Tianna Durbin and the leadership Arcola United Methodist Church they have expanded my cute little elective to a FULL CAMP OFFERING! 🥳🎉 and I’m SO excited to be working with Rachael Greenman who will be doing beginners boot camp and POP ROCK! The orchestra adventure camp targets students with experience looking for an ensemble experience as well as the opportunity for the pop rock elective, helping with beginners and a yoga/mindfulness for musicians class!!! In addition to how well run this camp is - you will not believe the price tag 😍😍😍 spred the word!
