In an attempt to fill my empty nest, I surrounded myself with students last weekend. I appreciated their willingness to be here! I played The Lark Ascending on my recital and enjoyed seeing everyone afterwards.
It was nice of Vicky Meneses, SU cellist, to gather all students for a photo and then call out "crazy photo" which, of course, made Hasong spring into action. It's hard enough for him to stand still for a photo when it's supposed to be serious!
Our first Pre-College Studio of the year was on Sunday. Partly inspired by observing the teaching of Elizabeth Faidley (https://www.elizabethfaidley.com/ ) and by having empty bedrooms, and by the fact that most of the kids are pre-HS, I decided to split up the large group into technique and mini-studio class sessions.
