It feels good to start seeing each-other more in person again. We are lucky we could use zoom through last year but having in-person interactions has been wonderful. We have some wonderful events planned this year and I'm hoping to see you all at some of these events!

Outdoor Music Celebration--Button Event! ☀️🎵
We are hoping to give students in your studios a chance to perform outdoors in the Spring. We kicked it off last year and it was a wonderful event. The board will be talking about where to hold this event and we hope to have two digital pianos and a PA System so students can play and/or sing if they choose.
We are hoping to host this in a large public park
State Virtual Teacher Connect ☕️
Please join us virtually to connect with other teachers in our state. Discussion information and topics will be provided in upcoming months. Zoom info will be sent prior to event. Hope to see you there!
