From the President ...
Your face can make seven-thousand different expressions and each exposes precisely who you are and what you are thinking at any particular moment. Every smile, every frown, every syllable we utter, or every arbitrary choice of word that passes between our lips can draw our students toward us or make them want to run away. Can we come up with concrete techniques to make our every communication clear, confident, credible, and helpful? As music teachers, our role is very important to lead our students to love music and be successful. Give your students a chance to enroll in some of the wonderful programs coming up in October.

Please remember the following important dates:
October 1st, Certificate of Merit Registration opens
October 6th, Piano Solo Competition at Brea United Methodist Church
October 6th, Master Class at Fields Piano with Mariné Ter-Kazaryan

Remembrance for Leona Roberts, a kind and loving soul will be held September 30th at the Watson Studio from 2:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Teri Watson by September 25th.

Stay young and keep teaching.

Con Brio,
Ani Nuyujukian
