March 6, 2007 at 2:44 AMIt has been a while since my last blog.
Some updates. I am in the process of finding a new teacher. I found a group class that meets bi-weekly, and have narrowed my search for a private teacher. I have a potential teacher who looks really good. She was trained in Japan, and has extensive chamber music experience. I think it will be a good match. I may also be joining a amateur orchestra. I was hesitant but someone in my new group class assures me that my level is adequate. She tells me that the orchestra really needs string players.
For those of you that live in the Maryland area - I had the pleasure of visiting a college in your area. I visited St. John's college in Annapolis last weekend. What an amazing school. For those of you not familiar - St. John's is a four year liberal arts college that studies the "Great Books." The curriculum is fixed - everyone reads the same books. While the school isn't for everyone it is the right school for the right kind of student.
One last thing.. I will be visiting Africa with my colleagues at the end of the month. Suffice to say - I will not bring my violin with me!
On behalf of all V.com members...Why not??? ;) Just kidding; I wouldn't either, but there are those for whom the thought is unfathomable.
How's your search for a new teacher?
