The mud of black sheep

Tuesday, June 26, 2018 This weekend proved one of the toughest rides for me. It began the morning of departure – loading up and hitting the road. I didn’t feel great when I woke up… had a strange disconcerting dream about doing too many things that made me behind to teach a class… then everything […]

The time it takes.

June 21, 2018 It takes the time it takes. The biggest problem I run into when adults come to me to learn the violin is that their brain works faster than their body. It takes a long time to master the fine skills to play the violin- and when I say fine I mean small. […]
