Congratulations to all my graduating seniors! I am so grateful that I had the privilege of being your flute teacher over these past few years. I hope all the skills we learned in our flute lessons help you in your college careers. Please keep in touch and let me know how things are going for you in this next big exciting phase.
Next, an explanation. There was no May studio newsletter. On April 24th, my 93 year old mother was in a terrible car accident. She is expected to recover but we were obviously all quite shaken by this. Thank you to all of you who expressed concerns.
On my agenda for June are some big gardening projects. It will include a complete replant of the area on the west side of the patio as well as construction of a fire pit. I’ll keep you posted on its progress. I have already replanted the herb garden in the front of the house and so far so good. Right now Scott and I have no definite travel plans, so my teaching schedule remains the same for June. Summer practice has begun in earnest and, yes, I already have my folder set up for next season. More on that in another post.
My son Tom will be teaching Algebra II next year at the same KIPP school in Austin, TX. He had a wonderful experience hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon over his spring break a few months back. The pictures looked amazing!
As you can see, there are no concerts on the books for June. I hope many of you decide to spend your Fourth of July holiday with the BSO. Details about that concert are on my performance page. You can check the BSO web site for more detailed information. If you have never attended a BSO Red, White and Boom event, check it out. You won’t be disappointed. And, yes, we do stand with our piccolos for the famous solo in “Stars and Stripes”!
For now, I intend to enjoy my little bit of down time in June.
Work Hard, Be Nice Tina
