“To play without passion is inexcusable!”


Imagine the fulfillment that comes from music-making with your own skills!

Imagine the joy of making music with others and sharing it with your family and friends!

Dear Students and Families,
It seems like our summer session just flew by!  I had lots of fun, and I hope you did, too--with all the great jazz and Brazilian rhythms and music, and then some great classics that we started for the fall.  

I've been doing a little teacher-magazine reading and have some great ideas for this fall's theme: THE LANGUAGE OF MUSIC.  You'll be speaking that language even without my help, if my plans work as I hope!  And I found a new trick that should solve all of our key-reading problems!  

Be sure to notice the upcoming dates in the "Coming Up" side-bar.  We'll share our pieces with each other in performance classes on some Saturdays, this year.  Our first will be September 17.  You may sign up for the 1:00 or the 3:00 class.  We'll have treats! (Of course!)  

In the meantime, enjoy the last few "lazy days" of summer!!

For all the joy in  music-making,

Mrs. Buxton
