Good morning folks. It's Monday. (yay)
We are now in Week Three of horn lessons for the YoungHornLife Studio. I sat down with a cup of coffee this morning and sent out what I felt was my first newsletter to all my parents and students. This year is going to be legit, man. I can feel it.
Summer band camp, 100 degree weather, and sleeping in are behind us now. These days we're in back in that daily routine of school. I have to say that I'm really enjoying this year, which is a year like no other I've experienced before. This last month I got to see students I've taught for a couple of years enter high school. What a strange feeling. In a way, they look like they were always meant for high school. The same is true for a couple of 6th graders I spent a lot of time with last year... they look like they were always meant for 7th grade! Junior High Band was where they were supposed to be all along!
I suppose that's life. Every day we grow into ourselves just a little bit more. Every month that passes we are more like who we were always meant to be.
Anyways, very proud of my little studio. It's a pleasure to work with such wonderful kids. I don't even mind that most of them aren't going into music when they grow up. For a little while, I get to teach them the ways of music and listen to them be artists.
