I had been in bed all week to recover from sick, but my cough has been diminishing and I think I will be well and ready to begin the classes from tomorrow! During these sick days I somehow managed to go outside and spend a lovely birthday with wonderful friends (will power?) and catching up with friends from distances. This year I will be teaching even more than last year--primary and secondary collegiate piano, community school, and as a TA for my dear teacher. I'm excited to teach students from diverse levels, ages and background, and grow as a teacher. This semester, all my courses are in jazz :) I am SUPER excited to be back in jazz courses and studying with both great professors. DMA Year 2, here I come!
