Maui Now : Popular Maui beachwalk, trees fall into ocean, triggering calls for managed retreat
As they'd say in the midwest. "Ope".
Maui Now : Popular Maui beachwalk, trees fall into ocean, triggering calls for managed retreat Popular Kāʻanapali Beach was a far cry from paradise on Friday. A concrete section of Kāʻanapali Beachwalk was crumbling into the ocean, tall coconut trees crashed in the high surf and a stretch of walkway pooled with minor flooding and debris.

Bibingka is still trying to figure out what role she plays in the studio. She tried her hand at being our librarian but I think that may have been a little too challenging. I'm sure she'll figure it out.

Method books are an essential tool to learning any instrument. They contain exercises that are scaffolded to build essential techniques in the most efficient way and break down every motion required to be successful. These are just some of the books that I use with my students. I think it's important to match the book with the student; some of these books are very dry and straight forward while others include diagrams, pictures, practice techniques, and games.

Please excuse my sniffling, this is the first time I've heard a student string ensemble perform in nearly 5 years and it was a bit more moving than I anticipated. This was literally just the soundcheck.
Working for the post office left a massive empty void inside of me. Having to turn off my creative brain for years was a very hard thing for me to do. I am so happy to be back working with children and music and I can't wait to see what the future holds for me on Maui.

When your office is in your car you can have some pretty amazing views.
Today I got to work with the 3rd graders at Pomaikai Elementary.
The power went out for about 25 minutes today and I almost had to cancel my lessons. Glad I didn't. Babingka has some new fans that definitely gave her some much needed exercise. 😍
If you are a current client of mine you know that I've been on the struggle bus with bows right now. Training via email and pictures has been a challenge since the Oberlin class was canceled. But I finally have this 3/4 S Eastman bow ready to go, it received a minor tip repair, new faux whalebone wrapping, and a new goat skin leather grip. Now to get it out of my studio and keep working on this backlog of bows.
