Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to Fall 2012! By beginning Vol. 11, we can say we’re starting our second decade of teaching in the Twin Cities.
Some of you have locked in your lesson times for the fall. I have times still available on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and one on Wednesdays between 6:15 and 7 p.m. I think these will fill soon, so don’t delay!
Please stay tuned: I will soon have dates for performance classes, our recital, and other events for you to jot down. Those of you who have theory and private rehearsals with Claudia should schedule those with her.
We’ll have monthly Saturday performance classes in the same format as last spring, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. for all students together.
Our weekly Book One class will be on Saturdays, between 1 and 2 p.m. We will not have Book One class on our performance class Saturdays.
Also, I hope you old timers participate in the ASTA Mary West Competition. The application form can be downloaded from here. The application deadline is Oct. 11, 2012. The Competition date is Nov. 4.
Here is a link to the details: MNSOTA: www.mnsota.org My ASTA number is 31169.
I was surprised to find Dominant strings for sale on Amazon.com. SHAR also often has good prices. It’s always advisable to have a spare set, even if you might be changing violin sizes. Most places will trade you up a string size.
Many of you need “fall cleaning” and on your equipment. (How is your bowhair? You know who you are.)
Stay tuned for the monthly dates of our performance classes and recital.
