Dear Parents & Students:

 

Happy new year! It was wonderful to “see” everyone last week for the first lesson after the holiday break. I was ready to get back to a routine. 

 

It was an emotional holiday break. The highlight was having our son was home for ten days after being away for over a year. It was great to have the family together for Christmas. On a sad note, the husband of my college roommate passed away from COVID on New Year’s Day. He had a wonderful baritone voice and was a music pastor at a church in Florida. My prayers and thoughts are with his wife and their young adult sons. 

 

Closer to home, my brother-in-law passed away last Saturday after a two-year battle with stomach cancer. As of this writing (Monday evening, January 11) we will be traveling to North Carolina the week of January 18 to celebrate his life. There will be no lessons on Wednesday, January 20. You will receive an email the day before lessons on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday to confirm if lessons are still taking place. Any cancelled lessons will be made up the week of March 22. Despite all this tragedy, I am grateful for the health and safety that my immediate family is experiencing. 

 

This newsletter recognizes students who have participated in fall semester events. There are several reminders for spring semester events including group lessons, performance classes and spring break dates. Please keep reading and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

 

This past year, I had a running calendar with a motivational quote for each day. Although I haven’t been running as much this past year, I found several of the quotes to applicable for any area of life. They are included below. I hope that you will ponder one or two and find them motivational, too.

 

It is such a privilege to teach piano to you and your students! I am so grateful for the gift of music. Let’s each use our gift of music to bring peace and joy to those around us.

Inclement Weather Reminder During the winter months, no lessons will be taught if local schools have canceled classes for that day. However, if parents and students wish to continue with the regularly scheduled lesson, they may, upon calling the teacher and confirming the lesson time.

 

The inclement weather policy is outdated!! Now that we are used to virtual lessons, the Mrozinski Piano Studio will continue a regular schedule during inclement weather. Lessons will be virtual.
