I'm not the most excited about school. It's going to be an interesting year for me and a busy one. I'm doing the un-normal because I can this year and because it will allow me to practice more on my violin and give me more chance to take advantage of some of the opportunities I've been provided. I'm very excited about going back to my English class with Mr. Lines this year. He was so much fun last year and he really gets you thinking and motivates you to try your best. How many highschool teachers actually make learning and working hard fun and interesting? Not very many that I am aware of..... I am also taking an English Lit course this year so that with an AP English course will be a ton of work but it will be a lot of fun too, I think! Shakespeare, Beowulf, Dickens, here I come!
Musically this year will be fun and exciting for me! I'm going to be officially working at the music school I study at this year as an apprentice to the other violin faculty. I already have a nice clump of students who have registered (including an adorable 4 year old that I had last year!) and possibly as many as 3 Suzuki groups! I really love teaching and can't wait to see all my students this year! I have some of the ones that I taught last year and some new ones too! I have some adult students this year too, I've never taught an adult really before so that will be new and exciting!
Lesson wise this year it's going to be pretty free flowing. One of my school days I only have one class that rotates which time it's at so 8am violin lessons are looking like the thing for me this year. That will be good though, it will get me in more of a routine and getting up earlier. I'm excited about my violin lessons this year. I am planning on doing an exam in January and there are a lot of really exciting things happening for me through the fall both lessons wise and with concert opportunities. One thing I'm particularly excited about is doing my own solo recital in a few weeks. Definite program is still be chosen but for the most part I think I know what I am going to play.
