Everything is back in full swing!  The majority of my private lesson studio is scheduled and I have been busy teaching and meeting new students.  I have also been visiting a lot of sixth grade classes and introducing them to the clarinet.  They were really amazed by the opening solo in Rhapsody in Blue and it was fun to see their reactions!  I am also getting ready for a concert with the Abilene Philharmonic in a few weeks.  We will be performing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 so it should be a really great concert.  If you are in the Abilene area on September 21st, you should come and check it out.  Nothing beats hearing live music!

This last week, we also kicked off the school year with a luncheon of the Denton Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota.  We had a great turn out and it was wonderful to meet and socialize with some of my wonderful sisters, I don’t get to see them enough!
