Just checking in with everyone! Some housekeeping notes to address:
Hubs put together the bookshelf I first mentioned here, we have it set up in our guest bedroom:
Hubs decided to even things out and put some of his books on the shelf (after I assembled mine, of course) .... he claims there has to be more varied reading material for guests instead of all girly books. Probably a good idea. :)
On Friday night, Hubs and I are going to a concert of Baroque music (one of my favorite music eras). I always try to incorporate some music history in the music lessons I teach to my students. I find music history fascinating. It helps the kids to know who the composers of music are, their styles, which country they come from, etc. I recently attended a music workshop given by a piano teacher and lecturer, she discussed the various ways kids learn (audio, visual, tactile, kinaesthetic, combination modality). After the workshop, I was able to identify how my students learn music based on their strengths and I have adapted their lessons accordingly to address some of the weaker areas (still a work in progress!) The kids are doing really well though - they even know what bel canto and con fuoco mean. (These kids are smart!)
Our Mad Men Theme Party is on Sunday, can't wait!

It will be a simpler party - appetizers, dinner, visiting and watching the premiere episode with friends, but definitely will be fun nonetheless. I will report on the festivities afterwards!
