Well - we are certainly in the thick of things: pandemic, lockdown, winter...
As I write this, I am in my Father’s study. It is a complete, dusty mess of history. I am here because my 91-year-old Dad had cancer surgery this past Monday. It is now Thursday, and he is doing remarkably well. I am in awe.
If it weren’t for this lockdown - I wouldn’t have been able to come and tend to my Father. I would have had to stay home and work. Many of my students would not have recognized that remote learning was a viable alternative to in-person lessons.
Since everything is on-line now, I have even been able to add a group class for adults to my menu. I have always wanted to teach in this format, and on-line is the perfect way to do it. Students are in the comfort of their own home, they can mute themselves as they fumble around trying to get their fingers on the keys, and they can have a glass of wine or crack open a beer should they wish.
I am enjoying this format so much that I am starting another group class on Thursday evenings starting in March. It would make a nice Valentine’s gift I think. My daughter thinks I should give a couples discount - I like her thinking.
Classes are starting on March 11 and running for 8 weeks. $200.00. Thursdays from 8-9.
