Hello Lovely Parents and Students,
I wanted to let you know my maternity leave plans. I will be working up until Friday March 9, the last day before Spring Break, and returning to work to finish out the year on Thursday May 3. I will be cutting back my hours to 3:30-7:30pm and will be asking some of you to change lesson times as I adjust my schedule so I can be home by 7:30 every night. After the year end concert in June, I will be taking July, August and September off and returning part time 3 days a week 3:30-7:30pm in October.
If you would like to continue lessons after Spring Break from Monday March 26 to Friday April 27 and/or for July, August and September, I have spoken to several teachers I know who are interested in substituting for me while I’m off. All three are currently full time professional teacher/musicians.
Hilary Grist: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hilary is a close friend of mine, we went to university together. She has a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies. She teaches piano and voice, and I have had some wonderful voice lessons with her. She released a very successful album last year and she’s a fantastic piano player with a beautiful voice. Check out her website hilarygrist.com to get a sense of what she does.
Kathy Fitzpatrick: email@example.com
Kathy has a Bachelor of Music in Flute, and her RCM grade 8 in piano. She also has a Musical Theatre Diploma and 6 years of teaching experience. She went to Capilano University after I did, and I have met her many times through my friend Hilary.
Paul Miyai: firstname.lastname@example.org
I went to university with Paul as well. He has a Diploma in Jazz Studies from Capilano. He is an amazing pianist, specializing in jazz but very comfortable teaching all styles of music. His website is http://paulvancouverpiano.com
If you are interested in continuing with lessons with me when I’m “back in the saddle” in October, please let me know. I would love to keep teaching all of you that my schedule permits.
Thank you for another great, albeit abbreviated, year of music study:)
