I think I found a new teacher!

April 22, 2006 at 4:23 AM

After moving up here to Oregon, I have been having a supprisingly hard time finding a viola teacher. It isn't because there are few viola teachers out here - there are quite a number. But because that they seemed to be all booked full for advanced players! This is a new one for me.

Luckily, I got referred to a teacher in the area who has a time slot availble on Saturday afternoons which is perfect for me with my work schedule. I spoke with her a bit tonight and we are scheduling a "meet and greet" session this coming week. This would include a short lesson and discussion period to make sure our "fit" is right. I am so happy and excited! I've been looking for a teacher up here for about 2 months!

Tomorrow I go house hunting, and Sunday is viola hunting at a local handcrafted musical instrument show at the University. Hopefully by the time the weekend is over, I will have a new home (pending close of escrow), a new instrument chosen (if not actually purchased), and a new teacher. Woohooo!

Hope your meeting with the new teacher goes well!

Ed and I are hoping to get to Marylhurst U sometime this weekend. :-)
