I will post important items here for parents so you will always have a quick reference point to find the information you need.
Welcome to a new year of Strings!
I am excited to once again share a year of making music with all my favorite people. Please come back and visit this site whenever you have questions on upcoming events, and feel free to contact me with any questions!
MATERNITY LEAVE-- first up, I will be having a baby girl in early September! My sub for the duration of my approximate 8 week leave will be Mrs. Zsuzsanna Przyzycki. She is a teacher who holds a Masters of Music Education and at least 20 years teaching experience, plays violin professionally with Springfield Symphony Orchestra and will be a great teaching resource for all my students in my absence. She will give students her contact information upon her arrival. She will have her own style of teaching and she will be in charge while she is there- please help her feel welcome!
Below are some general notes that are good to view for the start of our school year.
Butler Youth Philharmonic Orchestra-- please consider auditioning for this group if you were a previous GMYO member, or have taken private lessons and want to be in a full symphony orchestra. Visit the website butlerphil.org/youth/ to get complete audition information. The Butler Philharmonic is a new name for what used to be the Hamilton-Fairfield Symphony's youth group, the Great Miami Youth Orchestra.
