This is my last week of teaching music until September. I usually have a music night in June to let the students highlight their talent, but I decided to change course and have a winter show. The BIG SHEW, like Ed Sullivan used to say -- WINTERLUDE perhaps, a variety show to boost my students' spirits, and the parents and friends who attend. But it does seem very strange not to having an end of season show, I must say.
I love the kids and their hugs and cards and gifts of appreciation. They are great encouragers to me, just as I hope I am to them. I keep saying that it takes a village to raise a child. This past year, I've been involved in their lives and emotions. This past month has seen a few tears as well, as they feel the pressure of their busy little lives and school work. A few tissues have been used in Mrs. Mac's li'l ol' music school.
Next week I will be in my summer mode, and it will be completely different from last year. I'll keep you tuned in to the next chapter.
