Thoughts, Reactions & a Few Giggles #TheMorningAfter

My morning has been consumed with happiness, relief, and that feeling you get when you find something after almost conceding that you might have lost it forever…but still holding onto that shred of hope. I woke up with the song ‘It’s a wonderful world” in my head…with adjusted lyrics (will share below). It’s no secret […]

Where Can I Send My Kids for Music Lessons???

I get asked this question A LOT. Until now, I have only been comfortable to refer my kids’ very own piano teacher (who has limited availability), or teachers that were recommended by friends.
