December 20th 2009

Since my street is completely untouched by snowplow or salt (and I'm sure many others are as well) I am stuck and we will NOT have class on Sunday. Again, please be safe, have fun, and have a wonderful holiday!

Winter Music Together® Semester!

Hi Everyone! Our Winter Semester of Music Together® is off to a great start! I hope everyone is enjoying the "Drum" collection" songs as much as I am. (I will admit that the extremely catchy "John the Rabbit" and great the song without words "Biddy Biddy" are among my favs, you'll probably be hearing a few extra repetitions of those as we go on!)

Evergreen Academy has 3 classes running at our Lauraville location: (5315 Harford Road, Baltimore MD 21206) 10:30 Thursdays, 10:30 Saturdays, and 9:30 Sundays. If you need a make up please send Zoe an email and feel free to attend any of the open classes.

See you all and your great kids in class!

Campbell Shepard Book 2 Recital!

I'm proud to announce my Suzuki guitar student Campbell (age 9) will be playing his 2nd solo recital next Sunday, November 15th. Campbell has been taking lessons with me since the age of four but began his music education in my Music Together® classes at age 3.

A solo recital is the culmination of months and years of hard work, many congratulations to the Shepard family for this great accomplishment!

New Music Together® Semester!

The Music Together® semester at Evergreen Academy is off to a great start! We have three classes running: two at the Hamilton Location (Thursdays at 10:30 and Sundays at 9:30) as well as one at our new Timonium Location (Tuesdays at 10:30). The "Fiddles" collection truly is one of my favorites; I love the american folk and bluegrass influence as well as the great variation in tonalities. Many thanks to all of our fabulous registered families, I look forward to watching and hearing your kids make music this semester!

Guitar Group Classes Begin!

Today was the first meeting of my "Young Peoples Guitar Ensemble" for kids 10 and over. Wesley and Campbell did a phenomenal job working on "Maleguena Variations", and I couldn't be more pleased with their efforts today to learn the music! I am very excited to see how the rest of the semester develops. Plans were laid today to begin work on some traditional classical favorites as well as a Beatles set...stay tuned for upcoming gigs and video of these fabulous students.

1 East GQ CD release

I am thrilled to announce the release of the 1 East Guitar Quartet's self-titled debut CD!

Welcome families, thanks for checking out the blog! I intend to use this space to share practice tips, info for parents on how your young children are processing music, special student achievements, announcements (inclement weather, etc.) and news about the school or my performing schedule. I am furiously working on finishing my promotional materials for the new school year. Stop by again soon!
