Plans are already under way for our Winter recital. Right now we are
sched-uled at Steinway Music in Maryland Heights for Saturday (check with
instructors for times), December 18. Keep an eye out for more details as
the date draws near—and keep practicing that Christmas music that has been
assigned to you!
Wedding Bells are ringing
Congratulations to our own Catherine Dudley--piano, strings, and
acting teacher--who was married in Central Park in New York on October 2!
Catherine is now back from her honeymoon, and hopefully will be able to find
time to schedule another one of her popular acting classes. Please let us
know if you would be interested!
classes are back
As sad as we were to see Miss
Nicole head off to graduate school, Kathleen Myers, a retired school
teacher and amateur artist, joined our staff in August. In addition to
children’s art classes after school on Monday and Tuesday and Saturday morning,
Kathleen is also offering tutoring in most subject areas on an “as needed”
basis. Kathleen has taught both English and Social Studies at the high school
and middle school level, and has tutored grade school and middle school students
in most other subjects. She is also certified to provide instruction for
students who use English as their second language. Art classes are $65 a month
for weekly classes, and tutoring is available for $25 an hour. An ACT prep is
tentatively planned for the Fall.
Be sure to leave this date open! On October 29, AMAE will present their
Halloween Recital here at the studio, beginning at 7:00 pm. Dress in
costume if you like! Our art students are planning to decorate one of the
windows with “monster” instruments, and a snack table will be set up for any
ghoulish delights you might wish to share.
In an effort to meet the growing demand for guitar instruction, AMAE is
pleased to also introduce Jeremy Novak as an additional teacher.
Jeremy has a BA in Music from Southwest Missouri State University, as well
as 20 graduate credits from Webster University. If you had wanted to take
guitar but could not find a convenient time slot, please check with us to
see if Jeremy’s schedule might fit your needs. He has times available on
Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. We also have a couple slots open with
Mel on Tuesday and Larry on Saturday.
and Thank you
