Jacob Sherman, in the photo, worked hard during the summer, too, and at the end of LRMC's summer semester he finished Suzuki Violin School book 1. Congratulations, Jacob! He had been way into book 2 but we had saved the last piece of book 1 until the summer. He looked very happy as he finished playing the last piece of book 1 -- I can tell he knew he played well. It's important to be able to tell when you play well and not well. And the sense of satisfaction and accomplishment is part of music lessons. You learn that your hard work and effort get rewarded.
I've been working on my part and studying the score and I can't wait to start rehearsing with my colleagues on the 14th. I'm also excited to have an open rehearsal at Atria Rye Brook on the 19th -- it's going to be my first time holding an open rehearsal! Both events are free of admission fee. Please come!
