Today is the day. After months of preparation, and endless mentoring and encouragement by so many champions, today I begin a new chapter in my life that's kind of a dream come true: Today I begin work as a part-time instructor at The Lexington School, teaching Ukulele to classes of 3-5 & 6-8 graders (as well as private lessons and a plucky group of very adept teachers and administrators).
I've been honored to work as a graphic designer, writer, and photographer for TLS for over a decade and am thrilled and full of anticipation to continue and expand my affiliation with this amazing school, and to bring the joy of ukulele (and the joy of music creation, by sneaky association) to young minds and hands and ears.
Thank you, Universe, for this opportunity, and particular thanks to those many generous souls who have helped me get to Today. "Put me in, Coach — I'm ready to play."
