My dear students and parents,

Please note that I’ve made two changes to the last post. Our first performance class will be on Oct. 10, since MEA weekend begins the following weekend. Also, our November class will be on Nov. 7 to precede the Mary West Competition and Winners’ Recital.
Thank you, and I’m sorry for any confusion.

Now it’s time to practice.

Class recital: Sunday, Dec. 13, 2 p.m.

All other Saturday classes begin at 9:30. In fairness to the students who have lessons after class, please arrive a bit earlier.

Other business: The Mary West Solo Competition Is scheduled for Nov. 15 from noon to 6 p.m. The application deadline is October 16. Check with me first, but you can apply online at www.MNSOTA.org

Those students studying chamber music with Bruce on Saturdays have been contacted by Bruce.

We are so excited about this year!

Hi, Everyone,

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 Classicalarchives.com.

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!
