wow, so many teeth and sickies
I hope everyone is feeling better soon. we still just have those two bottom teethers, the top ones are still nowhere to be seen.
Melissa, the lessons are going great, thanks for asking! I have four students right now, all from sam's class, and will be adding another 6 over the next 4 months (during and after summer vaca). The kids are really enjoying it, and so am I. One little boy has severe learning disabilities - dyslexia, amongst other things - and it's been great for him. It's challenging to try to teach him traditionally, but I'm working on different techniques. He's got an amazing ear, and can put together incredibly complex melodic structures for his age, so I'm leaning heavily towards a composing focus with him. He blew my mind, really, when I had him just "make up a song". I told his mom about it, and how good he was at putting together notes, and she cried
She said she never hears about the things he can do, only about the things he can't.
at any rate, I feel very lucky to be able to have him as a student. He loves the lessons, too, she says he looks forward to it all week.
