I know I’ve told most of you but Bruce and I have a family reunion this week. We will have our hands full, but can see you starting August 11, Tuesday. Just be sure to check in about your times, even if you had a steady time before now.

See you soon, and I hope you keep enjoying your summer! Don’t forget the playing lists up on

May Class News, Vol. 13, No. 11

Hi, Students and Parents,

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow for class at 10 to approximately noon. The three students playing the Bach Double Concerto can arrive at 9:30 for rehearsal.

I’m excited to tell you about a new app I discovered. It is called Anytune. Finally the younger students can listen to their pieces at a slower tempo without a drop in pitch!! Those of you with younger students who have bought your Suzuki recordings on iTunes can import them to Anytune, listen to them slowly, and even play along once in a while with a piano accompaniment feature.

Another step into this century is that I now can accept credit cards, would you believe.  I probably won’t ever say “Will this be a check or credit card today?” but if it is helpful to you, feel free.

See you tomorrow!

Vikram and Amithy at the Taj Mahal

Dear Student and Parents,

Our next Performance Class will be this Saturday, March 28, at 9:30 am. Be sure to welcome home Vikram and Amithy who have just returned from India!  We will start without a rehearsal beforehand. Thanks to all of you who’ve agreed to bring snacks. We have plenty of juice here, so there’s no need to bring any this time. Please arrive a bit early.

I’ve been meaning to mention to please be very careful in the driveway as you pass our neighbor’s driveway that runs along our front yard. It is a dangerous spot because you can’t see if a car is approaching. So please take it slowly! Our neighbor has very weak eyesight and we have had some near misses.

Bruce and I are taking a spring break between April 5 and 17. We don’t have an April class, but do have class on May 2, dress rehearsal on May 30, and recital on May 31. Hard to believe!

See you soon, and looking forward,
