It's school holiday time! Those of you who are in school have had a topsy-turvy first semester and I'm sure you're enjoying the break after the exams and assignments of the last few weeks. Across the road, the Stafford Skate Centre has re-opened and now we're singing along to the distant rumble of the hottest party tracks of the past few decades while they have their school holiday sessions. It only takes one listen of "Baby Shark" to get it stuck in your head for days!
At this stage I have no plans to take any holidays between now and the end of October when I'll begin paternity leave. Once our baby arrives, I'll take the rest of the year off and resume in January. That means we have around 4 months of lessons left this year - plenty of time to get you prepared to make the most of a couple of months of unsupervised practise.
A few students have felt one of the less obvious results of COVID - a lack of musical instruments coming in to Australia! I have 3 students waiting for stock to arrive at their local music stores for their new digital pianos. I have my fingers crossed for you that everything arrives soon!
A warm welcome to Jane, Ian, Daniel, Erin and Benjamin who have either recently had their first lessons or are just about to.
