Hello - It has been a while since I posted here on the blog and that is because there are so many changes going on behind the scenes. I am excited to share that I will be going to Nursing School in September. In an attempt to honor, celebrate and archive all the special parts of being a violin teacher for the past 20 years I will be completing several parts of this project between now and then. Expect the following additions over the course of the summer:
NEW VIOLIN SHEET MUSIC COLLECTIONS:
1- Fiddle Duets - A collection of my favorite fiddle tune arrangements plus a couple of duets I composed in a folk-fiddle style.
2- Folk Music for Beginning Violin - 10 beautiful and simple folk tunes from around the world to help beginners grow their skills and experience the joy of playing.
3- Teacher's Toolkit - My best teaching materials inspired from 20 years of working with young musicians designed to help students practice independently and make the most of their home practice sessions.
4- Welcome Packet (FREE) - 4 Samples from Music for Young Violinists available free to all on the newsletter list and new members who sign-up.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT/PARENT SUPPORT:
I am creating 11 more videos for the Teach with PASSION series. These are short (2-5 minutes) and informal videos designed to help you re-charge your violin teaching battery and give parents of young musicians some guidance on this journey. Learn more HERE about what makes these so special.
* Blue Jello Cards giveaway coming later in July.
* Inspiring story about a local man in my area who attempted to beat the Guinness World Record for most burpees in 12 hours. He came and shared his story with my studio and I think when you learn why he did this you will feel motivated to make your dreams come true.
* Teaching Materials for SALE - I had to move out of my studio and do not have room to store things so am selling lots of great materials are low prices.
* Studio Smarts - This is a page here on the website that will be sharing some ways to run the business portion of your studio in the most streamlined manner so that you can focus as much energy and creativity as possible on your teaching.
Thanks and stay tuned for all of the exciting growth on this project this summer! Heather
