The Canadian study lends support to the idea that musical training may do more for kids than simply teach them their scales--it exercises parts of the brain useful in mathematics, spatial intelligence and other intellectual pursuits."

-- The July 12th recital is imminent. It will be held in the music department at CSUEB in Hayward. We’ve reserved the recital hall from noon - 4 pm that day. Per our usual, the performers will be divided into 2 groups. The first group will start at 1pm, and the second group around 2:30pm. Watch this space the next couple days for further recital info!
-- My teaching schedule will be uninterrupted during the month of July. However, I am performing in a summer musical workshop at CSUEB the weekend of July 24-25. I will need to leave teaching early on the evenings 7/20, 7/21, and 7/23 for dress rehearsals. I am hopeful that I will be able to schedule my evening students at different time slots that week. Students I see earlier in the day will be unaffected. This new musical I'll be performing is called "Almond Eyes", and you can learn more about it here should you be interested.
-- Parents & students: please continue to keep me informed as summer travel and vacation plans arise. Thank you in advance.
I am looking forward to the July 12 recital performances.
Hope to see you there,
