How to Fix the Pinky

Today I used a new technique for my student to encourage relaxation of the fifth finger.  I put a googly eye sticker on it! Rather than ask repeatedly to curve the pinky, the sticker did the trick.  In fact, it was a lightly amusing way to encourage good form!

Keep your children happily playing!

Today my girls are at our local college competing at a special strings competition.  In fact, they are actually competing against each other! However, the two girls are not at each other’s throats, they are helping to support one another. It is gratifying to see how this event turned out to be a bonding experience from which they may learn and grow.  Most importantly, they will grow closer as siblings and create more memories that will last a lifetime.

Pre-show in the Pit

What does it take? It takes dedication, tenacity, passion, drive and care which leads to incredible motivation. Last night’s performance of Les Mis at LaGuardia High School was awe inspiring. The effort and talent is mind boggling. I am especially proud of my daughter’s hard work and achievements. Her talents are special gifts and she is learning to use them well. 

With love and pride,
