It’s really hard to believe the end of another year is approaching.  In some ways it seems like these past few months have been forever.  In other ways, they have flown by.  Either way, I have been sad not to have the energy of my students filling my studio.  And I miss so much more than the sounds of the piano.    I miss their stories and their jokes.  I really miss their hugs.  I even miss when they forget their books!  There have been days over the years that I have wondered if I am living my life to the fullest and doing what I was meant to do in the world.  I would never choose to be living through a pandemic, but I will tell you that it has taught me so much and has made me realize more than ever that I love what I do, and I would not have my life be any other way.  I am so grateful that you have kept music going in your lives.  I am even more grateful that you have chosen me and Bianca and Joel to be your teachers.  One day this will all be behind us - and as much as I hope that everything goes back to “normal” - there is a part of me that hopes that we never forget what is important in life.  Friendship, family, healthy,!  I wish all off of these things for all of you!
