Endings and Beginnings

Wow. Today was a big day. I said good-bye to teaching and to the studio (Virginia Beach Music Academy) where I've been for the last 7 1/2 years. It was a decision made mostly due to our growing family - I'm due to have our 3rd child in 5 weeks - and the logistics that entails. Though my first love is performing, I have always taught on the side (anywhere from 1-3 days a week, not a heavy schedule), and it was with a few tears that I said good-bye to my boss,  place of work, and some dear students and families whom I will miss.

I'm still performing with the Doorway Singers and Celtica, and hopefully as a solo artist in the jazz genre in the near future.

Also in the works is studying jazz theory with a local jazz musician in the coming months. 

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers in this time of transition! Life has definitely been full of changes in the last 6 months as I refocus and redefine who I am as an artist (and prepare to add another child to the mix!), but all of the changes have been good, and I have been blessed with a great deal of peace in all my decsions.

Here's to 2013!
