It’s been another long while since I’ve blogged but here I am again! Hello! I’ve missed you!

If there’s one thing most people like to be, its organized. I’d like to have everything in order and figured out, to have a plan, to be consistent, etc. etc. Running a studio really requires a whole lot of […]

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….or maybe not. Dwayne and I often go for walks at night and lately we’ve been seeing all the beautiful and not so beautiful Christmas decorations people have put up.

Back to The Beginning Again

With great passion comes also great pressure. I think when I say I’m passionate about music I’m also putting myself under pressure to remain that way. It’s similar to my faith in God.

Gravity Happens

Recital month just happened at Mohawk College. If you had gone into the music wing in the last couple weeks you’d have seen a lot of overly stressed out third year students. You would have also heard a lot of music coming from the practice rooms where non-stop rehearsals and practice sessions were going on. […]
