Our New Baby and New Opportunities!

   Joy Savannah was born January 26, 2013, healthy and with no complications. She is a beautiful child, with a calm, happy demeanor and good sleep habits! Though it has had its rough spots, my husband and I and our other two children are transitioning well to life as a family of 5. We are so blessed!

In the music arena, new opportunities are opening up: I've had the privilege of working with Justin Kauflin, a premier jazz pianist in Virginia Beach, for some upcoming gigs at Town Center, and am also exploring with other jazz musicians and venues some gig possibilities. I just found out I will also be a Beach Street 2013 street performer on solo jazz voice and flute! Things are looking bright!

I continue my studies with Berkleemusic online, and am learning so much. I'm already in Week 9 of my theory course (called Getting Inside Harmony - a great foundation for jazz harmonies and chords) and am soaking it up like a sponge. I love that I can apply it to piano, flute, and voice....next class, starting in April, is Jazz Improvisation! Though I know it will be challenging, I'm so excited to learn more about this art form.

Thanks for tuning in!
