Well my excitement of having 2 new singers yesterday is over. Apparently, Sarah was being forced into and so she has quit after one lesson. Her mom is hoping that in a few weeks she will want them and then resigning up for them, but if she was determined not to have them before she met me, I doubt she will be back. I am hoping for a few more students this fall. So far, with the online company I have 12 students plus about 5 weekly, 2 every other week, and 4 monthly of my own without the online company so fall is shaping up nicely.
I have one student this evening, his name is Logan and he is 16. He plays the piano and is doing pretty well. He has difficulty in note reading, so I got him some flash cards to help with that. I am going to make a note reading paper for him too to see if that will help because the cool books I had have been used. I can't remember what one of them is named so I can't have Logan buy it. It bothers me that I can't remember but with Fibro fog, what can I expect? I just looked up what notespellers I have and went to check the 3 that we possibilities and they aren't it. It must have a different name or something. That is the only thing bad about having so much music is that if you can't remember what it is called, you can't find it. I will make him one then. That will work. I made him one using Finale. It is a music notation program that is really neat. I can also make accomp. CDs with it although it takes a long time to do. A very long time to do. I don't really like to do that anymore so I try not to have to but in this case, I was only making the sheet music. I will find that book soon. I am determined to.
I am very tired today. It hasn't been the best week for me. Family strife and all. I thought it was better and I found out (the hard way of course) that it was worse so yeah, not my week. I am determined that it will not affect my teaching and so far it hasn't.
I read a facebook post from 2010 today. They randomly post what you post the year before and the year before that. I guess Mom and I weren't doing too much of anything this day in 2010. It is strange to read 2 posts about someone who is in Heaven. Reading these little facebook posts are okay though, they don't upset me at all. Some of them are rather funny. I tried to make Mom's day a bit happier and she liked to laugh a lot. She deserved to have her last days happy. I tried anyway. I will find out someday when I am in Heaven with her if I succeeded or not.
I think I am going to rest in the living room while I wait for my student. Like I said, I am so exhausted today. I think several days of tears and upsets are catching up to me. Tonight will be a calm lesson with Logan and then tomorrow is Acer and Calli who are always fun to teach.
I do hope your day is good too!
