Dear Student and Relatives,
Sinterklaas is back home and Christmas is quickly approaching. I will not teach the weeks of December 25 and January 1 (unless you are really fanatical).
Great that everyone is doing so well! Now there are two points that I pay a lot of attention to. That’s the importance of rhythm and the importance of practice. Rhythm is important if you want to play together with others and practice is necessary to get better. Sometimes starting is the hardest part of practicing, but once you get started it’s always fun. We will have another music festival in the spring.
Furthermore, I am very happy to report that I have completed most of the hospital journey and that I am coming out gracefully. I still have to be very careful with my time and energy, but other than that I am especially grateful that I am still quite fit.
To celebrate this, everyone will receive not one but two ‘Wildcards’ this season (from summer to summer)!! A Wildcard means that you can cancel a lesson within 24 hours, for any reason, without me charging the lesson. After those 2 times, I do count on lessons that are canceled less than 24 hours in advance.
On Saturday I make a schedule for the week. If you unexpectedly have to cancel or reschedule a lesson, please let me know in time. So think carefully in advance if your week goes differently than we planned. If you let me know before Saturday I will try to come up with a solution.
If you have a cold, just come to class, I also have to build up my resistance. Disinfect your hands with the product at the bottom of the stairs.
I look forward to being surprised again by the nicest students in the world and I also wish you very happy holidays!
