Lesson and class update 4/11

Saturday, April 11, 2020 by Tina Burns | Uncategorized

There is still no power or cell service where Chana and Kate are teaching from in Orono, so there is no studio class tonight at 5:00 and no lessons with Chana.  Phil, the kids and I will still be broadcasting our Live Stream Quarantine Concert though, so there is plenty of fun to be had at 7:00 tonight!  See you online!  


Online lessons...

Dearest students and parents...Thank you for your patience!  I had my radiation consult today and will be reaching out about online lessons as soon as I pull myself together.  What a crazy time!  I have you all on my mind as we all navigate responsible social distancing during this challenging time of uncertainty and apprehension.  You are all filled with love and grace and I appreciate you all more than I could ever say.  

all my love,
